The groundsmen will now work on ensuring the new pitch is in optimum conditions for Saturday's game against Seville.
The re-laying of the Camp Nou pitch was completed this weekend, with 8,000 square metres of new turf successfully laid down. The next phase for the Club’s groundsmen is to ensure that the new surface is in optimum condition for Saturday’s game against Seville. Once it has been levelled using the latest laser technology, the grass will be cut down from 30 mm to 22 or 24mm for match day use. Five tons of sand will also be added over the next few days and the pitch will be forked over to allow air to enter and guarantee successful rooting to occur.
The exact markings for the pitch will be pained this Thursday, with the lines painted later and the fans should be able to see a perfect pitch when Barça and Seville come out at 20.00 on Saturday.
