Members of Spanish LaLiga club FC Barcelona have unanimously voted to support the €1.5bn ($1.7bn) financing operation needed to complete the Espai Barça infrastructure development project that will overhaul the Camp Nou.

Barcelona staged a landmark referendum on Sunday, with voting opened up electronically to all its members. This resulted in a total of 48,623 members with voting rights taking part in the online vote, an all-time record for club referendums, far greater than the turnout for the Espai Barça referendum in 2014 (which was in person and collected 37,535 votes).
