FCB Board decides to renovate existing facilities rather than construct a new stadium on an alternative site

Yesterday FC Barcelona’s Board of Directors announced that their preferred approach to increasing their stadium capacity and improving their fans’ experience would be to develop the existing stadium and the surrounding facilities. The project would see the Nou Camp’s capacity increased from 99,345 to 105,000 and would also involve the construction of a new 10,000 seat Palau Blaugrana on the current site of the Miniestadi, which will in turn be relocated in the Ciutat Esportiva.

The announcement comes after a year and a half of feasibility studies commissioned by the Club, of which ISG’s research formed a key part. Based on the work of ISG’s research division, Comperio Research, a process that included 10,000 in-depth surveys with socios and commercial businesses, ISG prepared a full business plan for both of the two main options under consideration; the construction of a new stadium on a separate site and the development of the existing facility. These were presented to the FC Barcelona Board to allow them to make an informed decision on the future of the club.

The proposed redevelopment of the Nou Camp would start in 2017 and take 4 years to complete. The decision is subject to a referendum on April 5th or 6th, when fans and fellow shareholders will determine whether to officially mobilise the project.
