There will be a new Camp Nou. That was the decision made this Saturday by Barcelona's club members in the referendum called by Josep Maria Bartomeu's board of directors. 37,535 members took part in the referendum (31.65% of the census), with 27,161 (72.36%) voting yes to the project and 9,589 (25.55%) voting no. There were 751 (2%) blank votes and 34 (0.09%) null votes.
With the project approved, the Barça board now has green light to start putting their redevelopment plans for the Camp Nou into action. Building work on the stadium will take place in stages between May 2017 and February 2021.
In addition to endorsing the new project, members also approved selling the naming rights to the new Camp Nou, something that is expected to raise about €150m for the club.
