The Camp Nou Stadium, the Home of FC Barcelona
The Camp Nou Stadium is the stadium of Barcelona Football Club.
It was opened in 1957 and has a capacity of 98.847 spectators, at this time the football stadium with most capacity in Europe.
It is located on Avenida Aristides Maillol, near Avenida Diagonal.
The stadium was officially named ‘Estadio del Club de Fútbol Barcelona’ but was always known as the Camp Nou. In 2001, under the mandate of Joan Gaspart, the 'socios' of the club decided to rename it officially to Camp Nou.
The UEFA has cataloged the Camp Nou as one of the few 'five star' stadiums. The official headquarters of FC Barcelona, offices and the FC Barcelona Museum are also located in the stadium installations.
The new Camp Nou Stadium
In 2007, on the 50st anniversary of the stadium, FC Barcelona organized a competition for the remodeling of the Camp Nou. More than 80 architects from around the world submitted their projects. In the end the winner was Norman Foster's project whose most striking feature is the facade of moving plates of polycarbonate and glass that allow the projection of light effects similar to what is seen on the Agbar Tower. The new Camp Nou Stadium will have a capacity of 116,000 spectators and the completion of the works is planned for 2011 or 2012.
