Barcelona announce move to Olympic Stadium

 Barcelona have announced they will play in the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium during renovations to the Nou Camp.

The temporary move to Montjuic will take place during the 2023/24 season.

This deal will accelerate planned improvements at the venue, especially those related to mobility and public transport, and the access stairs

These adaptations will involve a cost of 7.2 million euros, of which 64 percent will be assumed by the club, while the City Council will assume 2.6m euros.

The rest of the extras, such as the improvements to the dressing room or the renting of the venue, will be paid in full by the Catalan club.

Barcelona's working estimate is that the move will involve an investment of between 15 and 20 million euros.

"I think this is the best way to celebrate 30 years of the Olympic Games," said Jaume Collboni, deputy mayor of the City Council.

"We are honoured and proud to welcome Barcelona. You are in the best possible place for Barcelona to come for a season or whatever the club decides. The city is on the side of all the clubs."
