Camp Nou renovation: Barcelona to upgrade Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium – FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta said on Tuesday the club will have to spend “between 15 and 20 million euros” to improve the Olympic Stadium, where Barca will play the 2023/2024 season while renovation work is carried out at Camp Nou.

“We have committed ourselves to adapting the Olympic Stadium’s facilities, which are already in very good condition, and modernising several areas, such as the press stand, the changing rooms and parking,” Laporta said.

In December, Barcelona’s members approved the club taking out a loan of up to 1.5 billion euros to finance renovation projects, with 900 million euros allocated towards the revamp of Camp Nou. Barcelona’s board was also given permission last week to sell off portions of both its licensing and merchandising business and its La Liga television revenues, which the club believe could raise 700 million euros.

Barça will return to Camp Nou for the 2024/25 season, but at reduced 50% capacity, with the plan for the renovation to be fully complete in time for 2025/26.

Lluis Companys, set in the green and hilly Montjuic area of the city, was first opened in 1929 and was renovated in the late 1980s in time to host the 1992 Summer Olympics.

Barca will then return to Camp Nou in the 2024/2025 season, but with a reduced capacity of around 50 per cent, before the refurbishment is due to complete for the 2025/2026 campaign. Lluis Companys has a capacity of 60,000, which is around 30% less than a full Camp Nou.
