Mini Estadi (Catalan pronunciation: ['mini ?s'taði], meaning in English "Mini Stadium"), officially named "Miniestadi"[1], is a football stadium located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The 15,276-seat stadium is situated across from Camp Nou, the home stadium of FC Barcelona. The stadium is currently home to FC Barcelona B, FCB's reserve team, as well as FC Barcelona's women's team, and Juvenil A.

Sporting use

The stadium was home to FC Barcelona C until July 2007, when they disbanded. It has also been home to the Barcelona Dragons, an NFL Europe American football team, until they were disbanded in 2003.

It occasionally hosts the national team of Andorra as well.

Concerts

Queen performed at the stadium during their Magic Tour on 1 August 1986.

David Bowie performed, on two consecutive nights, at the stadium during his Glass Spider Tour on 7-8 July 1987.

Elton John performed at the stadium during his One Tour on 21 July 1992. The concert was recorded and released on VHS and DVD.

Future

As part of the Espai Barça project, the Mini Estadi will be demolished to make way for the Nou Palau Blaugrana.[2] The new Estadi Johan Cruyff will be built at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper campus, which will serve as the new home of Barcelona's reserve and women's teams.[3]

It is expected that the Mini Estadi will be demolished following the conclusion of the 2018-19 season, when the Estadi Johan Cruyff is finally opened.[4]
