Barcelona is preparing everything for the remodelling of Camp Nou. Because of this, it has already officially announced to the Royal Spanish Football Federation that it will play next season at the Olímpico de Montjuïc stadium. Take a look at what the stadium looks like.
Barcelona announced last summer, together with the city council, that it would move to Montjuïc in the 2023-24 season in order to rebuild the dilapidated Camp Nou.
The Catalan club is finalising negotiations to remodel the stadium as part of the Espai Barca project.
All the club’s facilities in Les Corts will be renovated. The Estadi Johan Cruyff, where Barcelona’s B-team and the women’s team play their matches, will also be renovated. The Ciutat Deportiva Joan Gamper, the club’s academy and training centre, will also be repaired.
Repairs to Camp Nou are expected to begin in June 2023 and be completed in June 2026. However, Barcelona’s intention is to return to its home ground in November 2024 and, following the example of Real Madrid, to fix the rest of the stadium as it goes along.
For the next season and a bit, however, Barcelona will move to the Olímpico de Montjuïc. As the name suggests, it is a multi-purpose stadium designed for athletics, so it has an athletics track around the playing field.
The stand is located about 4 kilometres from Camp Nou in the El Poble Sec district. It holds 55,926 spectators and was built in 1927.
In 1992, when the Catalan capital hosted the Summer Olympics, it was the site of the Olympic Park, where all the athletics competitions and the opening and closing ceremonies were held at the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc.
