Barcelona 'considering selling chairs of the Camp Nou' as La Liga giants look to ease financial troubles
| Last updated
Barcelona's financial troubles aren't showing signs of slowing down, with the club said to be 'considering selling chairs of the Camp Nou' as they look to generate additional income.
Barcelona's economic struggles have been well documented over recent months, with reports from Mundo Deportivo suggesting that the club will need to reduce their wage bill by over €200m this summer in order to meet La Liga regulations.
The club's hankering for cash appears to have reached a new low this week though, with the club 'considering selling chairs of the Camp Nou' to help generate additional income as per Achraf Ben Ayad.
Barcelona are set to undergo further financial loss next season, with the La Liga outfit set to play their home games at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys whilst the Camp Nou undergoes a long overdue redevelopment.
The capacity of their makeshift home is 55,962 - 44,000 less than the Camp Nou. As a result, the club will endure further financial loss.
But in order to subsidise some of the loss, the club are thought to be considering selling seats from the iconic stadium, which has been the home of FC Barcelona since 1957.
It is not yet known how much the club plan on charging fans in order to purchase their beloved seats, but, after charging fans €300 each for a 60-minute kick about on the pitch last summer, they are unlikely to come cheap.
Barcelona have enjoyed increased success on the field in recent months, and currently sit eight points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga table. They take on Eric ten Haag's Manchester United in the Europa League later this month.
