Toni Freixa has explained a series of measures to come into effect next season designed to make the Camp Nou fuller than ever and to generate even more support.
Change of turf
Toni Freixa said that the Camp Nou turf will be changed between July 25 and 31. “This is by
request of the technical services”, he explained.
The secretary and spokesman of the Board of Directors, Toni Freixa, has spoken to the press on
Wednesday about a series of agreements made at Tuesday’s meeting. These include a series of
measures to implemented from next season that seek to optimise the Camp Nou attendance.
“Attendances have been very good this season, but we can still improve to reach
excellence” he said.
First of all, Freixa has announced a series of measures for season ticket holding members
depending on the number of games for which they make use of the Seient Lliure system or not. In
this regard, he referred to three groups of season ticket holding members.
1) Members that attend games or free their seats for all matches.
25,000 such members. The club is planning a series of advantages to reward them.
2) Members that attend games or free their seats for between 25 and 75% of
This is a group of some 20,000 members. In this case, the club will be
implementing measures to facilitate the use of Seient Lliure.
3) Group of some 2,500 members that never free their seats or attend less than five games a
These will all be sent a letter whereby they will be invited to voluntarily join the
inverted Seient Lliure system. In these cases, the member must inform the club up to 72 hours
before the match whether they will be using their seat. If not, it will be sold on by the club.
Creation of support leading stand
Another measure the club plans to adopt is that of a special stand in the first
tier of the Goal North, where there are 1,400 seats. The supporters that already have seats in this
section will be offered the opportunity of moving to a better seating area. To form part of the
special group sat in this area, members must form part of an association that, among other things,
will manage access to each game for the 4,000 people that form it.
Members of this association will get a 50% discount on ticket prices. To form part of this
special group of supporters, members must register on the association’s website. The people
on this list will be controlled by the Catalan police force; and access to the young person’s
terrace will also be regulated by fingerprint technology. The Boards’ zero tolerance of
violence will remain unaltered, insisted Freixa.
As for car parking spaces at the Camp Nou, the secretary and spokesman for the
Board has said they shall be reordered, to be brought into line with market costs, which will
involve a 50% price increase.
