Barça Will Not Make Decision On Camp Nou Until '14-15 Season
FC Barcelona VP of Finance Xavier Fraus revealed that any decision on the future of the Camp Nou stadium "will come during the '14-15 season at the earliest," according to AS. Fraus explained that the remodeling of the Camp Nou would cost €300M ($389.7M) and a completely new stadium, around €600M ($779M). He also said that the club will not start any construction until its debt is less than €200M ($259.8M). The club's debt currently stands at €334M ($433.9M). Fraus: "Until we get the debt to under €200M, we won't do anything." He added: "American and English consultancies, as well as Catalan engineers, have been tasked with doing studies to analyze the viability of both options, and that's what's going to happen in these two years" (AS, 9/22).
