Nou Camp stadium in Barcelona

posted on 5th of january, 2012

Camp Nou (Catalan for "new field", often reversed in English to become Nou Camp) is a football (soccer) stadium in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
It has a capacity of 98,787 - making it the largest stadium in Europe. The stadium is the home ground of FC Barcelona . Its official name was Estadi del FC Barcelona (translates as FC Barcelona Stadium) until 2000, when the club membership vote to change the official name to the popular nick name Camp Nou.

Barcelona had outgrown their old stadium, Camp de Les Corts which held 60,000 supporters and the Camp Nou, built between 1954 and 1957, was designed by architects Francesc Mitjans-Miró, Lorenzo García Barbon and Josep Soteras Mauri. FC Barcelona won their first game at Camp Nou in impressive fashion, a 4-2 victory against Legia Warsaw with Eulogio Martínez scoring the first goal at the new stadium. Over 90,000 fans were present at this momentous occasion.
The capacity has varied between 93,053 at its opening to 120,000 for the 1982 FIFA World Cup before the outlawing of standing sections at the stadium brought the capacity to below 99,000 in the late 1990s.
