Beşiktaş are planning to inaugurate their new 42,1903 seater Vodafone Arena stadium with match against La Liga giants Barcelona according the club president Fikret Orman.
The stadium will replace the old İnönü and is being constructed on the same land as the previous venue.
“If possible we are planing to organise our inauguration game against Barcelona but it all depends on when the opening goes ahead,” Orman was quoted as saying by Fanatik.
The İnonü stadium is currently being rebuilt, the new Vodafone arena will be a state of the art, 41,903 seater stadium.
Beşiktaş recently signed a $145 million deal with Vodafone which included shirt sponsorship as well as the stadium naming rights.
Vodafone reached a sponsorship agreement for $29 million which will see the company brand advertised on the front of the shirt for 3+2 years.
The İnonü will be renamed the Vodafone Arena when it is completed.
