Barcelona discuss playing games at Montjuic

Barcelona are working on an agreement to play games in the Olympic Stadium at Montjuic if the Nou Camp renovations go ahead.

A statement confirmed:

“The idea in any club work is that while it is being done, the stadium does not lower its capacity beyond 80,000. However it has been noted that if the Camp Nou cannot welcome fans for a short period of time, they would be obligated to find a provisional new home and that would be, most likely the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium.

In the statement, Barça clarified that: "After years with the project stopped, it has become obsolete and that the improvements to be made could make the work more expensive. In this context, FC Barcelona has asked the city council to accelerate the permits that will be required for a project that should have been underway years ago."
