Camp Nou Football Stadium

Project description

The Barcelona football stadium is the third largest football stadium in the world. Barcelona Camp Nou has a capacity of 110,000 people and at every match, practically every seat is taken – such is the passion for football shared by the Catalan people. It is essential that the playing surface is suitable for heavy use, without degrading or interfering with the game in any way.

Product supplied

Bord na Móna’s fine grade peat moss was supplied in 2009.

Bord na Móna’s role in the project

Bord na Móna is a major supplier of peat moss to the horticulture and sports pitch industry in Spain and our peat moss was used in the construction and repair of the grounds at Camp Nou.
The reliability of supply of such high quality raw material provides sport pitch architects with the confidence that uniform growth and development of sport pitch grasses can be achieved. The supply of our fine grade peat moss was recommended as the high aeration and resistance to shrinkage, and high levels of lignin in this more decomposed Irish peat would produce an excellent playing surface.
