A week ago we published here that it was “impossible” for the Barça went to play their games in the Johan Cruyff Stadium. Because the accesses do not allow it, due to the impossibility of multiplying the capacity to 40,000 or 50,000 people and because it would not have had the approval of UEFA. On Wednesday the new mayor of Sant Joan Despí denied the possibility and yesterday Joan Laporta, taking advantage of the act of Ansu, practically gave up the idea that he himself had explained in the program of Enough. At the same time, yesterday he already hinted at the possibility that the Barça do not stop playing in the Camp Nou during the works. This is how they had it already programmed Nikken Sekkei and the club, maintaining a minimum capacity of 70,000 fans per game. Parked “fancy stuff” and improvisations, it returns to the course of logic.
The next step will be to go back to the original project of the Japanese architects. The idea of putting two rows of boxes VIP at the top of the second tier it has two effects. As the ring of the entire third tier begins higher, the entire stadium gains height and, automatically, the pillars to support this new floor occupy more surface. Therefore, the new Camp Nou it would grow in height and perimeter beyond what the permit and building permit say. And these are the two red lines that Colau will not let go. To vary this would be to start negotiating with the City Council and neighbors again and not be able to start the works in June.
