Barcelona will move out of their Nou Camp home for the 2023-24 season while the stadium is redeveloped. The Spanish club has received a permit from their city council for the renovation of the Stadium and work will start in June this year. They will be able to play at an almost full-capacity Nou Camp next season but will relocate to the Olympic Stadium in Montjuic for the following campaign.
Barcelona set to Renovate their Home Ground Nou Camp
Barcelona will return home in 2024-25 with capacity at 50% and work is set to be completed in the 2025-26 season. The club’s president Joan Laporta said: “Demolition any earlier would have meant having to play the 2022-23 season with just 50% of capacity.” He also said: “Out of prudence and to minimize risks and protect next season’s income, we will maintain a capacity of practically 100% and proceed to demolish the third tier when we go to Montjuic.”
Barcelona and their city council are working on the details of the move to the Olympic Stadium in Montjuic, which hosted the 1992 Olympics and was the former home of city rivals Espanyol.
