Toni Duggan: Barcelona women could play at the Camp Nou

Barcelona women’s player Toni Duggan is hopeful her side can one day be playing their home matches in the club’s Camp Nou stadium.

At the moment, the side play at the 15,000-capacity Mini Estadi but after beating Atletico Madrid 2-0 in front of 60,000 people in the Spanish capital on Sunday – a European record – there are hopes they can one day play in the iconic stadium in the Catalan capital.

“It would be amazing to play there (at the Camp Nou),” Duggan told an interview with ESPN FC.

“I think every single one of the girls and the coaches would say the same…at the minute, we need to focus on filling the Mini Estadi, that's the most important. Get as many fans as we can behind us because it does make a difference.

“It was amazing (to play in front of a world record crowd at the Wanda Metropolitano). It was unbelievable to play in such a stadium.

“Atletico gave us a platform to play on and the supporters really got behind their team. The atmosphere was incredible. To be a part of that, to make history and to score a goal as well was a dream come true.

“And it was such an important win for the team – I don't think people have spoken about that too much.

“But if they're talking about women's football it's positive because five years ago we'd have been screaming for them to just even mention us. So the fact they're speaking about us is good.”
