All you need to know about Estadi Olmpic - the new home of Barcelona
FC Barcelona have a temporary new home for the 2023/24 season, and it's a stadium that boasts a lot of history. While construction work takes place at the Spotify Camp Nou as part of an impressive refurbishment project, Los Blaugrana will play their home fixtures at the Estadi Olmpic Llus Companys in Montjuc, a hill with beautiful gardens which overlooks the city.
With capacity for approximately 50,000 football fans, the Estadi Olmpic is still one of the largest stadiums in LALIGA EA SPORTS and FC Barcelona will hope to replicate there what they achieved last season, when they produced the best home record in the competition.
The venue was originally built in 1927 for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition, so is almost 100 years old. Most famously, it was the main stadium for the 1992 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, while several of the other Olympic venues are situated close by in the parks of Montjuc.
There is so much history packed into this venue and five things you may not know about the Estadi Olmpic are outlined below.
