The best sports complex in the heart of a major city

Espai Barça makes good use of 35 hectares of valuable land (19.4 in Barcelona and 16.2 at the Ciutat Esportiva in Sant Joan Despí) and will be a place to meet and welcome visitors 365 days a year.

The project to transform the FC Barcelona facilities in the Les Corts district of Barcelona and the Estadi Johan Cruyff at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper is already becoming a reality. A project that unites sport and architecture, and which will be a space to be shared by members and for welcoming visitors 365 days of the year. The project includes the future Camp Nou, the construction of a new Palau Blaugrana, a Barça Campus that will involve redeveloping all the surrounding area and the construction of the Estadi Johan Cruyff at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training centre, which is already operational.
