Even if there is no game, the Camp Nou is still worth a visit…
The stadium was built in 1957, and enlarged for the World Cup (1982) to 115,000 spectators. Today, the old standing places are transformed into seats and the stadium has a capacity of around 99,000 seats.
You can take the Camp Nou Experience and visit the Museu FC Barcelona, the dressing rooms, the chapel, the director's box, the pitch - and the FCBotiga Megastore with a lot of official FC Barcelona merchandise.
No tours on match days.…
FC Barcelona was founded in 1889, and the club has become a symbol of Catalan culture and Catalanism ("Més que un club" = "More than a club"). It is the most successful club in Spain, and has won more than 80 official titles (including the UEFA Champions League several times). During the years, many famous players – like Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Michael Laudrup, Romário, Ronaldo, Hristo Stoichkov, and Ronaldinho – have played for the club, and on the current team you'll find names like Xavi, Iniesta, Neymar, and Messi...
I have seen FC Barcelona play twice at Estadi Camp Nou. First time, I saw FC Barcelona against Malaga (4-0), and second time FC Barcelona against Deportivo La Coruna (3-2). The atmosphere at the stadium was good, but nothing compared to other countries (for example England). A visit to a FC Barcelona home game is still a great experience - they play some of the best football in the World and Estadi Camp Nou is a 'cathedral' of football!
Please notice that match dates and times can be changed at short notice (due to TV and European matches)!
hi we were in Barcelona a few weeks ago and wanted to get football tickets, the official web site of FC Barcelona didnt work or had no seats together 5 people ... so after checking a few sites we found one called BESTBARCELONAFOOTBALLTICKETS they dont have a variety of tickets, but we got all 5 tickets together just behind the goal and they charged less than all other sites ... the tickets got to the hotel with a surprise! a Barca scarf ... any way it was a dream come true!!!
Equipment: it can be cold ... but we got the scarf ...
If you are a football (soccer) fan, esecially of Barca, then this could be a fun little outing for you. Located inside the gates of the stadium (Camp Nou), the museum is dedicated to the history of the great team. I believe that they now also offer tours onto the pitch itself. I do not remember the exact price of admission, but I don't think it will break the bank or anything, especially for a one time experience. Visiting the gift shop could be what really puts a hole in your pocket! This could be a fun way to spend some extra time before a match, or maybe just a chance to do something a little different.
Mon - Sat: 10:00-18:30
Sun. and holidays: 10:00-14:00
Closed: Jan 1, Jan 6, Sept 24, and Dec 25
The Nou Camp or Camp Nou (Catalan for "new stadium") is the largest football Stadium in Europe. Built in 1957, this is the home of the Barcelona Football Club, commonly known as 'barca' to the locals. The ground is also known as 'The house that Kubala built'. In the 1950s, Kubula used to be a great goal scorer. This Hungarian was so popular with the spectators that the stadium was unable to accommodate the sheer number of supporters who wanted to watch him. A new bigger stadium was eventually built.
The club has also what is considered to be the best football museum in the world, it receives more visitors than any other museum in Catalonia. Exhibits trace the history of the club since it was founded more than a century ago, while the guided tour takes you onto the pitch, through the tunnel and into the changing rooms. The shop also sells a large selection of Barçelona FC souvenirs.
Monday to Saturday: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Sundays: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Admission: £7.40 (includes guided tour)
What a club! I was so lucky to see them in 2009. They were playing picture perfect football.
1. Buy tickets over the phone after you arrive. Camp Nou holds 98,000 so only the BIGGEST matches sell out.
2. They don't sell beer in Camp Nou. I guess I should have known this.
3. Camp Nou is pretty far from the main city so leave kind of early, but there is very little in the way of entertainment out there, think Comiskey Park not Wrigley Field.
4. BTW, did I mention, they don't sell beer in Camp Nou!?!?
Do you love football? Then you should visit the home of Barcelona FC, one of the most popular football teams in the world, better known as Barca for friends. Camp Nou is the largest stadium in Europe (it has a capacity of about 100.000 seats!) and the atmosphere is amazing during a match.
The museum is open daily 10.00-18.30 (Sunday till 14.00) and the entrance fee is 8,50 euros but if you to visit the stadium too you have to pay 17 euro!! If you have the change I suggest to see a football match here (el clasico is the game against the big enemy Real Madrid), it will be an unforgettable experience.
I was lucky enough to see one of the most important games ever here when back in 1999 I came to see the Champions League final between Manchester United vs Bayer Munich (2-1). The last 3 minutes of this amazing match are still on my mind, the two goals (Sheriggham-Solskjaer) that Manchester scored and won while they were behind for 89 minutes!! My photo isnt clear (I only had a cheap point and shoot analog camera that year) but some german players stay there on the ground crying for some time after the end of the match! What a match...
In Barcelona there are tow football teams Espanyol and FC Barcalona. They are both in the Premier League though FC Barcelona usually has much better results. In fact Barca is normally engaged in a fight for the title with Real Madrid. These are the 2 most popular football teams in Spain.
Barca play in Camp Nou/Nou Camp and their strip is blue and deep red. Prices range from 18 euros to 61 euros to see a normal league match at home. This depends where you sit of course because it is a very big stadium and if you go for the cheapest tickets you will be virtually among the clouds!
You can buy tickets online, at the stadium or through the popular Catalan bank La Caxia (though the bank machines).
You can visit the museum here for 8'50 € or combine it with a tour for 13€.
Monday to Saturday, (from 2nd April to 28th October) from 10:00 to 20:00 - Camp Nou Tour until one hour before the Museum closes. The rest of the year the Museum opening hours are from 10:00 to 18:30.
Sundays and public holidays, from 10:00 to 14:30 - Camp Nou Tour until one hour before the Museum closes.
On days of League and Champions league matches in the stadium, from 10:00 to 13:00 - Camp Nou Tour not available

This is a must see place if you are a football fan. The stadium is open to look around on your own on non match days. Once inside you can visit so much, team changing rooms, press boxes & interview rooms, the stadiums own chapel. There is a museum there telling the history of the club & displaying the trophies won. At the end of the tour you get to step out into the stadium & take in fantastic views of the stands & pitch. Once outside there is a club shop where you can buy almost anything with the FC Barcelona logo.
Go and watch a game in the football cathedral of FC Barcelona. According to me (I am a big football fan since my childhood), this team shows the best football in the world, and I would call their football style "art". I've been there of course and I can tell you I was really impressed by their technique and attacking style. Moreover, the stadium is so amazing (see photo)
We are quite sure football lovers will spend much time at the football stadium (Camp Nou). Camp Nou is presently considered the largest within Europe, which accommodates 120,000 people.
To get to Camp Nou, take the blue line or Line 5 (Directions: Cornellá) and get off at Collblanc. Once you get off Collblanc, it is approx. 20 minutes easy walking to the front entrance. (Incidentally, please do not make a mistake of purchasing the one day or the one week metro (or underground tickets), always purchase the T-10 which only cost 6.30 Euros, given a ten journey, you are others may share the same ticket simultaneously & it metro tickets expires in one year date).
It is best to get to Camp Nou around 10 in the morning to give you ample of time to enjoy everything they have to offer tourists. Visit the FC Barcelona Museum; the cost per head is 9 Euros. It is approximately 45-50 minutes tour (tour is also available in English). The tour includes visiting the museum, dugouts, the players locker rooms, the press conference room after the games, also you are allowed to step on the grass, seat on the Presidential Box & all the photos you wish to take is allowed what is more interesting is you & everyone else can even go on the Presidential VIP seats and hold the replica of the European Cup.
A week ago, we hosted some football admirers & they got to Camp Nou after 3pm, it was their last day here in Barcelona & was not able to see much, this is the reason why we are suggesting for you to get to Camp Nou early enough & would not miss anything. Should you wish to purchase T-Shirts of Barça, it is always best to purchase it at Camp Nou as we have seen many imitations being sold at Las Ramblas.
Have a wonderful & safe time here in Barcelona. We wish to add one more thing; we are advising you and everyone to please do wear a money belt, wear those money belts while in Barcelona for peace of mind and great pre-cautions. Cheers to all,
Equipment: Will give you more details after downloading my photos. MANY THANKS PAL!
Home of FC Barcelona.
A superb European stadium. I've been here three times now and have won drawn and lost.
I stood up at the very top, in the cheap seats, in 1994 when there was a crowd of 115,000. The terrace I was standing on was looking a bit sorry for itself and needed a deal of maintenance. I'm not sure the fence would have held us if United had scored. Fortunately for us we lost 4-0.
Second time I was a bit lower and along the side of the pitch. A much better view of a cracking 3-3 draw.
Finally I was nearly behind the goal with a great view of the two United late late goals, in our 2-1 Champions League Final 1999 win over Bayern Munich.
It now has a seating capacity of 98,000.
I look forward to going back.
Equipment: Not too much in the way of cover for the football fan so let's hope it not raining.
Soccer (European football)is, without doubt, the most important sport in Spain and in Barcelona. So, if you like soccer, it would be a shame to miss the chance of watching a match in the spectacular Camp Nou.
I was asked to visit the Barcelona's ground by a friend (although I am a Real Madrid fan - card carying at that!). The ground was more than a football ground with the ice rink and other facilities available for many uses.
The stadium seats some 100,000 fans and has an impressive history. There is a "TOUR" although all this means is that you pay your money and follow the yellow arrows around the complex. This takes you through the stadium, up and down and of course through the back areas and down to the pitch itself. In addition there is a museum and it is a pleasant experience.
Of course you end in the shop, and this could be an expensive place if you are a fan.
(I was surpised that there were no socks on sale although they had everything else!)
one of the 5 best club in the world and the richest one helds an impressive football stadium. inaugurated in 1899 and renovated a couple of times, camp nou attendant capacity of 68.800 seats, makes it the second larger in the world. is a source of immense pride to Barcelona?s supporters not only because of the sheer size of the stadium, but also due to the architectural design. modern facilities available here make it by far the best football stadium in Europe (well, next to benfica stadium of course:-).
a well deserved UEFA five-star rating , a category reserved for the very few.
