I have seen FC Barcelona play twice at Estadi Camp Nou. First time, I saw FC Barcelona against Malaga, and second time FC Barcelona against Deportivo La Coruna.
The atmosphere at the stadium is 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.
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 ...
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 98,000 seats.
You can take a guided tour of the stadium and visit the Museu FC Barcelona, the dressing rooms, the director's box, the pitch - and the FCBotiga Megastore with a lot of official FC Barcelona merchandise.
No tours on match days.…
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.

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€.

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)
