IMG_3721

Architects Josep Soteras Mauri and Francesc Mitjans Miró created a stadium project based on a structure in concrete and steel with 2 rings of continuous tiers. The upper ring lowers to give way to a roof structure above the main tribune. The roof contains 26 supporting beams in steel and has a simple profile that narrows towards the playing field. In the early years, the stadium had a capacity of 93 000 spectators.

L’ESTADI (CAMP NOU) _ 0014

IMG_3678

It was Francesc Miró-Sans, president of FC Barcelona in 1953, that took the initiative to build a new stadium after an electoral campaign. There was a strong cry to build a new stadium for the all mighty Catalan club. The campaign was represented with the slogan: “We need, we want and we’ll have a new stadium!”. After just 4 months upon approval of the project, works started at Camp Nou, the New Stadium as it is named in Catalan. The stadium was finally inaugurated in 1957. Officially it is named L’Estadi.
