Spanish champions Barcelona will make a decision very early in 2014 on whether to remodel their existing Camp Nou stadium or build a new ground in a land adjacent to their current home.
The Camp Nou project was the main focus of the Board of Directors meeting on Monday afternoon, but a definitive decision has not been reached, according to the Board spokesman Toni Freixa.
After the meeting, Freixa said another meeting could be scheduled for the first two weeks of next month but went on to stress that two possible courses of action regarding the ground- construction and remodeling- had been reviewed.
“We’ve made advances, we have all the information and we’re in a position to make a decision,” Freixa said.
Both proposals would have a capacity of 105,000- about 10,000 more than the current Nou Camp- and improve other facilities at the sporting complex.
The spokesman also noted that any project submitted for referendum will need to satisfy three prerequisites: “They need to be viable from a technical perspective, urbanist and economic. We would never submit a project that would endanger the sustainability of the club.”
