The timeline for the New Espai Barça project will be revealed after the season comes to an end. “The first thing we’ll do is create and organise a work team. We’ve always said that the Club requires daily upkeep when it comes to the economy, patrimony, community, and supporters clubs … We want to create a team that will have a certain amount of independence, it will operate in parallel with the Executive Team,” said Josep Maria Bartomeu after the results of the referendum were announced.

Constructions to start in 2017

The president went on to say that “in 2021 we’ll have the new Camp Nou, and it will be a source of pride for all Barça fans.” It’s worth nothing that the renovation costs total 600 million euros, and that construction is set to begin in 2017 and will go through 2021.

Before the completion of the project, however, in the summer of 2019, the new Palau Blaugrana will be completed. The Espai Barça project also encompasses complimentary renovations for the Stadium and the Palau.

Bartomeu concluded by saying: “A lot of members came up to me and told me they were voting yes on the project that they will likely never see completed due to their age, but they came out to vote to guarantee a better future for the Camp Nou and the team for their grandchildren.”
