Barcelona are having a referendum over Espai Barca, if the fans approve the financing for it on Saturday. The 600m euro budget is history and the new one looks like 1.5 billion, more than double the numbers offered in 2014.
On that occasion the club put the project to the vote. Not just the budget but the model and architectural set up. The problem is that over time, costs have shot up and the project was not executed.
This time, socios can vote in a referendum can vote on the project if the fans at the assembly on Saturday approve it. Laporta has asked for fans to join in so Barca don’t miss the train with the project and fall out of the top group of clubs in Europe.
