Barcelona have revealed designs for a revamped Nou Camp in what is a huge project for the struggling Catalan club.

The Blaugrana have planned to renovate their home and its surrounding areas for a number of years but had to delay the process.

The club's financial difficulties have been well documented but the club are pressing forward with the plans and have shared a virtual walkthrough showing what they hope the upgraded stadium will look.


Barca want to up the capacity to 105,000 and introduce a new third tier and new double VIP ring.

They have also announced a proposed new sustainable roof which will be covered with 30,000m2 of solar panels to generate photovoltaic energy.

Moving into the future, the arena will introduce a 360º screen in the bowl's interior and even use 5G connectivity to bring a whole new technological experience.

Barca are ambitiously hoping to deliver the biggest sports and entertainment space in the whole of Europe, with new offices, a hotel and an ice rink, and modifications to the Palau Blaugrana and Estadi Johan Cruyff also slated.

The new 'Espai Barça' is to be financed by the anticipated revenue the project will bring, with the estimated overall investment costing €1.5 billion.

President Joan Laporta has revealed that should an assembly on 23 October at Barcelona's facilities approve the plans, a referendum will then ultimately decide whether it gets the go-ahead.

In terms of the time-frame, work could begin in the summer of 2022 right through to 2025 and would require the first-team to play away from the Nou Camp for a season.

Like we have seen Real Madrid do in recent times during the COVID-19 pandemic, Barca would likely play their home games at Estadi Johan Cruyff.
