Photographer's Note

Yesterday... I took this picture in the FC Barcelona's Title Party in the Camp Nou

The stadium has been the home of FC Barcelona since its construction in 1957. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the stadium, the club issued an international tender for architects to develop a project for re-modeling the stadium. The aim of the project was to turn the stadium into an integrated and highly visible urban environment. Whilst not aiming for a substantial increase in seating capacity, proposals must accommodate a minimum of 50% of seats to be under cover. On September 18, 2007, British architect Norman Foster and his company was selected to "restructure" the Camp Nou. The plans include an extra 10,000 seats to be added and the estimated cost is €250 million. It has a capacity of 98,772, making it the largest stadium in Europe, and the eleventh largest in the world

This year the team has won the "Copa del Rey" and the Spanish League, and the next wensday the team will play the famous Champion League... If they win the match, they will get three titles in the same season!!!

I hope you like it!

PD: Sorry, I know that the picture could be better... but It was very difficult to make pictures because there were many people at the stadium.
