Plans for the renovation of Barcelona's iconic Camp Nou stadium have been altered, while work is set to begin in May 2020 and last until 2023.
Barça were given the green light for the plans to increase the capacity of Europe's biggest football stadium to 105,000, as well as adding a new roof last year, after the club reached an agreement with the local government on their 'Espai Barça' project.
Recently, it was also announced that the redevelopment would incorporate 5G mobile technology, making it the world's first stadium to do so.
