Legendary Camp Nou stadium is 60 years old
It was 60 years ago today that Barcelona inaugurated their Camp Nou stadium with a friendly match against a Warsaw X1 in front of 90,000 fans.
The date was chosen as it was the saint’s day of La Merce the patron saint of Barcelona.
Barcelona went on to win their first ever match 4-2 at a stadium that would become legendary in European football not only for matches involving the Catalan side but also great games like the final of the 1999 Champions League.
Now, Camp Nou is set to undergo remodelling to keep it uptodate and it should all be completed by the time the stadium has its 65th anniversary.
