Barcelona to leave Nou Camp for one season

Barcelona to leave Nou Camp for one season

Saturday 30th April 2022

Barcelona are set to play the 2023/2024 season at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys as renovation work at the Camp Nou steps up.

The La Liga giants have announced the move as part of the plans to modernise the Camp Nou and increase its capacity of 105,000 - further cementing its place as the largest stadium in Europe.

Work is due to start next season, with changes being made to the first and second tiers. The stadium will remain at full capacity whilst the work is carried out. Barca will then move into the Lluis Companys as construction moves to the third tier. The club then intend to return to the Nou Camp for the 2024/2025 season, with the capacity cut by around 50%.

Work should be completed during the 2025/2026 season, with the capacity increased to 105,000.

The Lluis Companys is a 60,000 seater capacity stadium, which was first built for the 1992 Olympics. It is located around 2 miles away from the Nou Camp.
