More than 12,000 visitors at Nou Camp

Míriam Nadal

A total of 12,234 took advantage of the public holiday in Barcelona on Monday to visit the Camp Nou.

Firstly, today was a public holiday in Barcelona in honour of Mercè, the city’s patron saint; secondly, there was enormous interest in seeing the model of Norman Foster’s project to remodel the Camp Nou; and thirdly, Monday 24th September is exactly 50 years to the day since the Camp Nou was officially opened.

Busy morning

The open day tour began in the Miniestadi, before passing into the stadium proper via the Palau Blaugrana. The Nou Camp concourse was full of children playing on the bouncy castles and other special facilities as part of the “grow up with Barca” campaign, with the special FCBJunior website stall (www.fcbjunior.cat).

Norman Foster design draws the crowds

The busiest place, however, was definitely the club museum, where the city’s most popular museum was today showing its latest exhibit – Norman Foster’s mock up of the new Nou Camp, which from tomorrow will be on show at the Col•legi d'Arquitectes de Catalunya together with the other finalists in the tendering competition.

As well as the Foster exhibit, visitors could also see the new exhibition ‘Camp Nou, 50 anys de batec balugrana'.
