After looking into all the options of the market, the club determined that the hybrid grass is the best one
Camp Nou will experience an historic change before the season. Barça decided to change the stadium's grass and went for a hybrid grass, that combine natural grass with the artificial one. The club has been studying it for the past year and looked into all the options the market offered. After various studies it was determined that this is the best option.
The majority of the pitch will be natural, but complemented with artificial parts. This system was tested by the first team in the past year and a half in some parts of the Ciutat Esportiva, and the results were very positive. After various tests made during the past few months, among which biomechanical analyses of the ball's bounce, or tests of hardness, they determined that the system brings a traction and stability more uniform all year long.
The works will start right now. On Thursday some elements of the current pitch will be taken off so that, in the following days, the new system can be implemented definitively.
