A timelapse video released by FC Barcelona on Thursday shows how the renovation of Camp Nou will take place over the next four years.

The team noted that the construction will not interrupt play and that the team will continue to host matches. 

In March, Barcelona unveiled its renderings for the new Camp Nou, which include seats closer to the pitch and a canopy roof. The largest stadium in Europe, which was originally built in 1957, will be almost entirely transformed by the end of the project.
