Barcelona are plying their trade at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys this season due to the ongoing renovation project at Spotify Camp Nou.
However, a recent report from SPORT has pointed out the benefits Barça stand to gain once the renovation project is completed.
New Camp Nou to generate €346 million per season
As per the report, Barcelona are expecting to earn €346 million once the renovation project at Camp Nou is complete and fully operational from June 2026.
Among these new elements, the museum itself is expected to generate a revenue of almost €80 million per season, if everything goes according to the plan.
As part of the Espai Barça project, Barcelona are not only increasing the capacity at Camp Nou, but also adding a new museum and enhancing the product and services.
The project is also in line with Barcelona’s plan to make Camp Nou more than just a football stadium.
New VIP boxes and the increase in tourists may also play a key role in revving up the earnings at Camp Nou, which could go a long way in helping Barcelona ease their financial burden.
Apart from the museum, the Blaugrana are banking on other avenues, with the club expecting to generate close to €74 million from ticketing and another €77 million from Hospitality VIP boxes.
The Catalans had to go through a meticulous process in order to convince investors to fund the Espai project.
The club had to come up with a proper planning of the project and a revenue picture once the project was completed. As a result, the club were able to finance the deal, with about 20 lenders in the picture.
Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, JLL and Perez-Llorca are among the key investors behind this project.
Barcelona are right now paying only the interest of the loan taken for the Espai Barça project, but once the new stadium is in operation, they are expected to start paying the capital sum of the loan.
The project is slated to be fully completed by the end of the 2025/26 campaign, and from the onset of the summer of 2026, the club expect massive revenue from the stadium.
