BARCELONA are prepared to sell the naming rights to their famous Nou Camp stadium for $479 million, according to reports.
The 99,354-seater arena will undergo a revamp by 2022 and the Catalan giants are hoping to capitalise on the club’s success to bring in more funds.
Barca had initially set the price at $319 million, but they have received the go-ahead from the local council, to increase the fee in what would be an incredible opportunity for investors, as reported by Marca, via Sport 360.
One area the La Liga champions are hoping to attract companies is in the US, where the first-team are currently enjoying a pre-season tour.
The name change would fall in line with ground’s renovation, which has been nicknamed ‘Barca Space’.
It would increase the capacity of the Nou Camp while also improving the facilities around the stadium.
This latest move would only increase their staple as one of the biggest brands in the sport.
Last month, it was revealed that Barcelona made a record $331.5m from sponsorship alone, beating off the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.
