The Camp Nou stadium, home to Spanish champion Barcelona, is getting an upgrade and the club has released images of the new design. Work is due to completed in the 2021/22 season. "The proposal stands out for being open, elegant, serene, timeless, Mediterranean and democratic," a club statement said.
Japanese firm Nikken Sekkei will work alongside Catalan studio Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes on the project, which will increase the Camp Nou capacity to 105,000. The club stipulated that every seat should have a "perfect" view of the pitch, and be sheltered from the elements.
Barcelona's star player, Argentina striker Lionel Messi, has scored 307 goals for Barcelona. He'll be 33 by the time the stadium is completed. Will he still be turning out in blue and red by then?
