The LaLiga team FC Barcelona Board of Directors, chaired by the club’s President, Joan Laporta, has announced that the construction company to take on the renovation of the Barça home – Spotify Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain – will be Limak Construction (construction engineering company).

‘sport.es’ stated that the transformation of the Spotify Camp Nou will start in June 2024 and the team will play at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys stadium throughout the next season, 2023-2024, and the first part of 2024-2025, something that will have a direct impact on the club’s income.

Futbol Club Barcelona, commonly referred to as Barcelona and colloquially known as Barça, is a professional football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, that competes in LaLiga, the top flight of Spanish football.

The 99,354-capacity Camp Nou, officially branded as Spotify Camp Nou for sponsorship and financial reasons, is a football stadium in Barcelona, Spain. It has been the home stadium of FC Barcelona since its completion in 1957.

The 55,926-capacity Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys is a stadium in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Originally built in 1927 for the 1929 International Exposition in the City, it was renovated in 1989 to be the main stadium for the 1992 Summer Olympics and 1992 Summer Paralympics.

The Espai Barça development plan goes well beyond modernization and reconstruction of FC Barcelona’s home venue Spotify Camp Nou. In addition to increasing the capacity of the current stadium to 105,000 from circa 99,000 and completely revamping the current structure of Spotify Camp Nou, the Espai Barça project entails building a new Palau Blaugrana with a capacity of 15,000, an additional court with a capacity of 2,000, an ice rink, a new social area, a new commercial area, revamped club offices, La Masía (read FC Barcelona’s youth academy), and an additional 5,000 parking spots. This ambitious initiative has been in work for several years and is scheduled to be ready for the 2024-2025 seasons. In April 2014, Espai Barça was approved by the club’s members with a budget of $700 million.

Limak Construction is an international company headquartered in Turkey operating across energy, tourism, food, construction, and infrastructure.

‘sport.es’ further stated that works, in fact, has already begun on the old home of Barça. The first phase of the partial demolition of the third tier of the South Goal, launched during the Qatar 2022 World Cup, has been completed. Currently, Spotify Camp Nou has a slightly reduced full capacity of 95,877.

Barça Vice-President Elena Fort has given more details about how the construction will go in terms of the price of schedules.

The Barça Board of Directors stated that the remodeling will be finished in July 2026, while, in reference to the price, “it will be adjusted to [the budget that] was agreed”.
