The Camp Nou (IPA: [kam ˈnow], Catalan for “new field”, often erroneously called
the Nou Camp in both Spanish and English) is a football stadium in Barcelona,
Spain. The stadium has been the home of FC Barcelona since its construction in
1957. It is a UEFA 5-star rated stadium, and has hosted numerous international
matches at senior level, and UEFA Champions League finals, the most recent
being in 1999. It has a capacity of 98,772, making it the largest stadium in Europe,
and the tenth largest in the world. Its official name was Estadi del FC Barcelona (FC
Barcelona Stadium) until 2000, when the club membership voted to change the
official name to the popular nickname, Camp Nou.

Opposite Camp Nou is the Palau Blaugrana, the stadium for indoor sports and
adjacent is the Ice Rink, the stadium for ice-based sports. Just behind the complex
is the Mini Estadi, the stadium where the FC Barcelona Atlétic plays its games.

History


Barcelona had outgrown their old stadium. Camp de Les Corts which held
60,000 supporters and the Camp Nou, built between 1954 and 1957, was
designed by architects Francesc Mitjans-Miró, Lorenzo García Barbon and
Josep Soteras Mauri. FC Barcelona won their first game at Camp Nou in
impressive fashion, a 4-2 victory against Legia Warsaw with Eulogio
Martínez scoring the first goal at the new stadium. Over 90,000 fans were
present at this momentous occasion.

The capacity has varied between 93,053 at its opening to 120,000 for the
1982 FIFA World Cup before the outlawing of standing sections at the
stadium brought the capacity to below 99,000 in the late 1990s.

The stadium’s facilities include a memorabilia shop, mini pitches for
training matches, and a chapel for players. The stadium also houses the
most visited museum in Catalonia, El Museu del Barça, which receives about
1,200,000 visits per year. The museum was inaugurated in 1984 under the
presidence of Josep Lluís Nuñez. The museum shows 1,420 pieces about FC
Barcelona’s history, of which 420 are trophies. The inauguration ceremony of
the 1982 World Cup was held on June 13. In front of a 100,000-strong crowd,
Belgium beat Argentina 1-0.

Future


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the stadium, the club issued an

international tender for architects to develop a project for re-modeling the
stadium. The aim of the project was to turn the stadium into an integrated
and highly visible urban environment. Whilst not aiming for a substantial
increase in seating capacity, proposals must accommodate a minimum of 50%
of seats to be under cover.

On September 18, 2007, British architect Norman Foster and his company was
selected to “restructure” the Camp Nou. The plans include an extra 10,000 seats
to be added and the estimated cost is €250 million.
