Meaning Of Barcelona's Stadium "Camp Nou"

Camp Nou is a football stadium in Barcelona, Spain. It opened in 1957 and has been the home stadium of FC Barcelona since its completion. With a seating capacity of 99,354, it is the largest stadium in Spain and Europe, and the fourth largest association football stadium in the world in capacity.

Camp Nou simply means 'New Stadium' or 'New Field'. The motive behind the name given to it then was because it was a new stadium under construction. Even when it was finally completed in 1957, people can't get Camp Nou away from their tongue. So in 2000, the club asked their fans to vote for the stadium name between Camp Nou and the Estadia de FC Barcelona. Over 60% voted for Camp Nou, that was how the name stuck officially.

Inside the stadium is also where you will find the Barcelona museum. Here visitors can marvel at the club's various trophies. You also get to see the commentators' boxes, the away team's changing room, and the coach's bench from close proximity on a guided tour.
