Last Ever Game At Spotify Camp Nou

Last Ever Game At Spotify Camp Nou

FC Barcelona played its last-ever game at Spotify Camp Nou on Sunday, June 5, 2023, before the stadium underwent a major renovation as part of the Espai Barça project. The club celebrated the occasion with a 3-0 victory over Mallorca, a tribute to its captain Sergio Busquets, who also played his final match and a farewell ceremony for the fans and the stadium.

Spotify Camp Nou, which was inaugurated in 1957 and has witnessed many glorious moments in football history, will be closed until November 2024, when it will reopen as Camp Nou 2.0, a new stadium with 105,000 spectators and state-of-the-art technology and facilities.

The club organized a special farewell for the game against Mallorca, the last in the stadium as we know it today, and invited the fans to come dressed in Blaugrana attire to say their goodbyes to Spotify Camp Nou and Busquets. The team also wore a commemorative kit for the game, which bore the words ‘full of history, full of future’, together with the years 1957 and 2023, and a picture of the stadium.

The game was a comfortable win for FC Barcelona, who dominated from start to finish and scored three goals through Ansu Fati (2) and Gavi. Fati’s first goal was also the 6,000th goal scored by FC Barcelona at Spotify Camp Nou in official competitions. The fans also gave a standing ovation to Busquets, who came off in the 85th minute after playing 618 games for the club since his debut in 2008.

After the final whistle, the club held a farewell ceremony for Spotify Camp Nou and Busquets, which featured speeches from FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta, former players Xavi Hernández and Carles Puyol, current players Gerard Piqué and Lionel Messi, and Busquets himself. The ceremony also included a video montage of some of the best goals and moments at Spotify Camp Nou, featuring legends such as Kubala, Cruyff, Maradona, Ronaldinho, Messi, and others.

The ceremony ended with a fireworks display and a banner that read #FinsAviatSCN (See You Later, SCN), accompanied by the tagline Full of History, Full of Future. The fans also chanted, “Spotify Camp Nou will always be our home” and “Thank you, Sergio” as they left the stadium.

The club also launched a digital campaign to honour Spotify Camp Nou and Busquets, inviting fans worldwide to share their most memorable moments at the stadium on social media platforms. The campaign also involved players of past and present and other people associated with FC Barcelona.

Spotify Camp Nou will always be remembered as one of the most iconic stadiums in football history, and FC Barcelona will look forward to returning to it in 2024 with renewed hopes and dreams.
