The FC Barcelona family continues to visit the marquee of the Espai Barça Exhibition, located on the Camp Nou forecourt, to learn first-hand about the project and the funding operation that will be the subject of a referendum this coming Sunday 19 December. On Friday, after morning training before the match against Rayo, it was the turn of the first women's football team to visit the exhibition, as part of the visits being made by all the professional teams during the weeks before the vote, which for the first time in history will be held electronically.
Director Xavier Puig has led an expedition that took great interest in learning all the details of the project. At the end of the visit, Marta Torrejón, one of the captains, said she was delighted with what she had seen: “It is a very good experience to have the whole project explained to you first hand. I offer my full support and look forward to seeing the vote. The future of the Camp Nou is like our own future. We are looking head with an aim towards improvement.”
During these visits, the emphasis has been on respect for the history of the Camp Nou and the need to find solutions to take the club and its stadium into the 21st century, making it a benchmark for architecture and sustainability. They have learned the details and virtues of the future Camp Nou and the new Palau Blaugrana thanks to an audiovisual simulation that showcases some of the improvements that have been introduced to the project, such as the new third tier.
Veterans and Casal de l'Avi too
The last days of the exhibition also brought a visit this Friday from the members of the Casal de l'Avi Barça and the FC Barcelona Players' Association. The representatives of these groups that include several more senior members of the club were able to enjoy an exhibition that honours the past with images of the configuration and construction of the Camp Nou, and looks to the future with all the details and explanations of the new Espai Barça project.
They were welcomed by vice-president Elena Fort, and various other club executives were at hand to present the project.
The day of visits ended in the afternoon with a second group of pupils and relatives of the Barça Escola, following on from a similar visit a week ago, and where the youngsters expressed immense interest in learning about a project that should push Barça towards the future.
