Barcelona could leave Nou Camp

Barcelona's board of directors will make a decision in January on whether to expand the Nou Camp or submit plans to move to a new stadium.

The Spanish champions have commissioned a report over the viability of both projects with the objective to increase the capacity of their home ground to 105,000.

Although progress was made at a meeting on Monday, the Barca directors will not announce their preferred option until early in 2014.

Board spokesman Toni Freixa explained on the club’s official website it had two choices: “The construction of a new stadium on the land on Diagonal, property which belongs to the University of Barcelona, or a profound remodelling project that would constitute a new stadium keeping the current structure of the Camp Nou.”

The Nou Camp is already the largest ground in Europe with a capacity of 99,354.
