Camp Nou (, “New Field”), often erroneously called “the Nou Camp” in English, is a football stadium in Barcelona, Spain. The stadium, located in the west of the city, has been the home of FC Barcelona since its construction in 1957. It has hosted numerous international matches at a senior level including two UEFA Champions League finals, the most recent being in 1999. It seats 99,354, making it the largest stadium in Europe and the fourteenth largest in the world in terms of capacity. Its official name was Estadi del FC Barcelona (FC Barcelona Stadium) until 2000, when the club members voted to formally adopt the popular nickname Camp Nou. It held UEFA five-star status until that rating was superseded by a new system of classification in 2006 in which the Camp Nou is now an elite stadium. - Source: Wikipedia
