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.
This is the place to vist for all soccer fans to go and visit when they`re here,its a fantastic stadium,full of history and glamour.Its the finest team in Spain...Except perhaps Real Madrid.
The museum is worth a vist and get your picture taken with the European Cup,as Arsenal fans its the only time it`ll be in our hands !!!!!
It seats 100,000,and theres no roof !!!
Now my college had a big stadium, with 111,000 people. Or so I thought. This place holds a ridiculous 120,000 people. If you have any interest in soccer (futbol) whatsoever, you need to check out a game here. FC Barca is actually one of the best teams in the world too, so you're guarenteed a good time. Just make sure you hold on tight if you're seated in the nosebleeds. My friend almost got knocked over the railing it was so windy.
I'm not much on football, but it's necessary to mention that FC Barcelona football team is one of the most famous football clubs in Europe.
The Stadium was one of the biggest in the world. Its capacity was recently reduced from 120.000 to 100.000 to accomodate all people in a seat, but no doubt that is the biggest in Spain.
World class players like Cruyff, Figo, Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Maradona, Romario, Kubala..played in FC Barcelona.
This season the star player is brazilian Ronaldinho.

When touring the Nou Camp, being a Manchester United fan, I just had to ask! Manchester United's finest moment came in May 1999 when they completed an amazing treble of trophies by capturing the Champions League at the Nou Camp in the final against Bayern Munich. The victory came in the most dramatic fashion. One nil down for most of the game, and by then deep in to injury time Teddy Sheringham popped up with an equaliser. As if that wasn't enough, just moments later the baby faced assasin- Ole Gunar Solskjaer popped up with a winner, creating the most amazing moment in the clubs history. I had to confirm with the tour guide which end this happened, and took this photograph. Next time you are there, just remember what happened there. Oh, it brings a tear to my eye. :)
One thing that I was very surprised by on my visit to the Nou Camp, was that we were able to purchase and consume alcohol at the ground. Call me old fashioned, but in England that is absolutely unheard of, and I can only assume that they don't get a lot of crowd trouble in Spain. It was nice to able to enjoy a beer (reasonably priced I might add) whilst watching an incredibly high standard of football.
