Dedicated fan stand area to be opened at the Camp Nou
The board has decided to create a fan stand behind goal north
The Club decided that it will create a dedicated area for local fans at the Camp Nou. The Board agreed on this just this afternoon although the news has already been spread across various media before becoming official. The dedicated fan area will be located behind goal north (Gol Nord) and will become operational as soon as possible but in any case it should be ready for the season 2016/2017.
The club has made this decision in alignment to requests of the LFP, which has promoted such type of spaces in other stadiums as well - for example Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid or Espanyol Barcelona has similar types of fan stands. These stands are under special regulations that will be implemented according to LFP. Such regulations include a separate access control as well as foolproof identification and several security measures.
The stand is dedicated exclusively to local home fans and is separated from the rest of the stands. All participants must be over 16 years and must have been members of FC Barcelona for at least three years.
