Barcelona, Camp Nou refurbishment and expansion… Reborn with 105,000 seats
Spanish professional football Primera Liga Barcelona is renovating and expanding its home stadium, Camp Nou.
On the morning of the 25th (Korean time), Barcelona announced that it had secured 1.45 billion euros (approximately 2.1359 trillion won) to repair and expand its home stadium Spotify Camp Nou. As a result, the current capacity of 99,000 seats in Camp Now is expected to increase to 105,000 through repair and expansion. Opened in 1957, Camp Nou is the largest in Europe, but it is in need of renovation due to its long history.
According to ESPN, a sports media outlet, Barcelona has procured this funding from 20 sources including Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. Barcelona will repay the funds over different time periods, such as 5 years, 7 years, 9 years, 20 years and 24 years. Barcelona expects to receive 247 million euros (363.4 billion won) in annual income after the renovation and expansion of Camp Nou, and plans to use it to settle its debt. 메이저놀이터
Barcelona has already begun repairing and expanding the Camp Nou, and will move their home stadium to Estadi Olympic Lúis Kompanis, also located in Barcelona, Spain, for extensive construction after this season. This stadium was used as the main stadium for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and can accommodate about 50,000 people. Refurbishment and expansion of the Camp Nou is scheduled to run until 2026, which Barcelona hopes to be completed by November 2024.
