Camp Nou Stadium is the stadium of FC Barcelona . Since its opening in 1957, the stadium belonged to the Catalan football club and was first named Estadi del FC Barcelona (Stadium FC Barcelona), but even then it was called “Camp Nou”. Officially, his current name he received in 2000 after playing against the club “Real Madrid ”.

The capacity of the Camp Nou is 99,354 spectators; This is the largest stadium in terms of capacity, not only in Spain, but throughout Europe. The stadium is the 12th in the capacity of spectators by the stadium of the world and the second in the list of stadiums intended only for football, yielding only to the Mexican stadium “Azteca”.

Repeatedly on the field were held the finals of the largest European Cup tournaments.

History

The stadium was built when Francesc Miro-Saens occupied the presidency of Barcelona. He promoted the project of the future “Camp Nou” because of the small capacity of the old stadium Camp de Les Corts, and also because the main competitor, Real Madrid, built Estadio Chamartín (now known as Santiago Bernabéu). The project of the new stadium “Barcelona” was entrusted to the architect Francesc Mitzhans (cousin Miro-Saens).

The first stone was laid in March 1953, and the initial budget was 67 million pesetas. However, during the work due to unforeseen changes in the soil there were difficulties, which increased the construction period and costs for the stadium, which reached 288 million. The club expected to cover construction costs through the sale of the site of the stadium Les Corts, but the municipality of Barcelona for ten years delayed with the transfer of land in another category, which led to a temporary shortage of funds. Francisco Franco has forgiven the club a debt.

The stadium was opened on September 24, 1957. Since then, “Barcelona” broke up with its former stadium and began to play at the “Camp Nou”, which gave thousands of fans who did not have enough space on Les Corts, the opportunity to attend the matches of your favorite team. By the time of the opening, the Camp Nou was one of the largest and majestic stadiums in the world: its capacity was 90,000 seats.
