Camp Nou In The Sea Sparks Barcelona Debate
Camp Nou maybe one of world football's biggest stadia, but a new one could be even more impressive...
19 Jul 2009
Emili Vidal has laid out ambitious plans to build the European champions a new arena that would stun the world of football and change the face of the Blaugrana.
La Vanguardia report that the visionary came up with the plans because he feels that the model of renovation that the club has accepted from Sir Norman Foster for Camp Nou is not enough.
While access problems will remain if the club stayed at their current location, Vidal's proposal would see the number of seats rise by over half if he was able to build a new stadium.
Situated in front of the Forum at the Diagonal Mar end of the city, the structure would stand on a man-made island off the coast and be accessible via a bridge.
Vidal may recognise that his idea may never come to fruition, but it has stirred the debate about what steps to take with the current stadium once again.
