Barcelona's B Team's New Stadium Will Seat 6,000, Be Located Near Club's Training Facility
Barcelona has announced a 6,000-seat stadium for the club's second team will be built on the land the club recently purchased near its training facility, according to Javier Giraldo of SPORT. Barcelona's Jordi Moix, who "leads the club's sponsorship department," announced that the new stadium will be "located at the site currently occupied by the Tennis El Forn complex." Barcelona B's new stadium will measure 100x63 square meters. It is believed that "the stadium's move is being done with the future and freeing up of land in mind, in addition to taking into account public attendance at the current Mini Estadi." There are "no calculations of the cost of the new stadium, but it was assured that it will be at a market price." The new Mini Estadi is "expected to open in two-and-a-half years" (SPORT, 11/14).
