When the Camp Nou is renovated, FC Barcelona hopes to host NFL matches in its lair, according to the Spanish press.
According to Mundo Deportivothe Blaugrana want the Camp Nou to host NFL games. The stadium is currently undergoing renovations and next season the Catalans will play in the former Olympic stadium in Montjuic as these works move up a notch. The club intends to return home for the 2024-25 season, with renovations due to be completed by the summer of 2025. Once completed, Barcelona will attempt to host an NFL game.
From the NFL to Spain
For several years, a series of games have been held each year in London and the NFL wants to expand its market outside. This has been seen with several matches in Mexico and most recently Germany hosted their first game in Munich at the Allianz Arena. For the past ten years, Germany has had a base of NFL fans, and several American football players find themselves there on the fringes of North American teams. It remains to be seen whether the same type of operation is viable in Spain.
