LIGA - Barcelona announces Camp Nou is back to full capacity
After Catalonia officials lifted Covid crowd limitations on Tuesday, Barcelona can fill its Camp Nou stadium to full for important Champions League and La Liga matches next week.
"As of Friday, the vast majority of capacity limitations will cease," regional president Pere Aragones told a press conference on Tuesday.
"We will return to 100 percent capacity in cultural spaces, outdoor sports facilities and in bars and restaurants," Aragones said.
The limit had been 60 percent of capacity.
"Camp Nou back to full capacity," said the Barcelona club website.
"After a year and half with no games, then games in an empty stadium, then games with severe restrictions, the time has finally come when the Barca stadium can fill to capacity once again!" it said.
The decision comes at a crucial moment for Barcelona, who have three games in eight days at the Nou Camp, which has a capacity of 99,000.
