Camp Nou decision in January

Barcelona have confirmed that a board decision on the future of the Camp Nou will likely be made in January.

The Catalans are set to hold a vote between its directors at a meeting set in the new year to determine whether to renovate the current 99,786-capacity ground, or to construct a new ground.

Club spokesman Toni Freixa has this week explained the two decisions as between: “The construction of a new stadium on the land on Diagonal, property which belongs to the University of Barcelona, and a profound remodeling project that would constitute a new stadium keeping current structure of the Camp Nou.

“Both would have a capacity of 105,000 spectators, the stadium would be covered, there will be a construction of a new Palau with a capacity of 12,000 spectators, an adjacent court with a capacity of 2,000 spectators, 6,000 new parking spots and access to the Ciutat Esportiva of the Miniestadi.

“We’ve made advances, we have all the information and we’re in a position to make a decision.

“[The project will] need to be viable from a technical perspective, urbanist and economic. We would never submit a project that would endanger the sustainability of the club.”
