Barcelona was hoping to be able to rely on the return of fans this season, with ticket sales expected to be a big part of the club’s financial bounce-back.
The return of fans was expected to make the club €56m (£50m/$68m) this campaign, with the club expecting a capacity of 25% in February and 50% from May onwards.
However, with no date in sight for the return of fans to Camp Nou, it appears that plan will not come to fruition, robbing the club of a major potential revenue stream.
