    the real Big House

    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.

    Ronaldinho

    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.

    The Solskjaer End

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 11, 2005

    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. :)

    Drinking At The Game

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 11, 2005

    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.

    A rather unexpected and unplanned night, which turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable was when we spontaneously decided to watch the FC Barcelona Basketball team play. Barca are supposedly one of the top teams in Europe, and their opponents were AEK Athens who had a number of Olympic gold medalists on their team. It was a good, fun game to watch with plenty of action. The tickets were cheap, and the cheerleaders were hot!!

    The Basketball stadium is once again within the Camp Nou complex, and is a pretty impressive arena in it's own right.

    barca vs depor

    Where do I start?! What a stadium, and what an atmosphere during the big games. I have been privileged enough catch three games at the Nou Camp, and each one was a truly memorable experience!

    First one was FC Barcelona Vs Real Madrid in December 2003. There is a HUGE rivalry between these two sides, and the atmosphere was absolutely electric! It was a brilliant match, and the standard of passing and movement was astonishing. A huge amount of talent, some of the best players in the world, were on show and it will be a long time before I forget it! I was up on the third tier and although it was difficult to distinguish the players from each other from that far away, you could get a great perspective on the tactical movement of the whole pitch.

    Second game was in November 2004, a Champions League clash between AC Milan and Barca. AGain the players on show were the elite, and for this one we had really splashed out on tickets, and got some of the best in the house. Although the view was tremendous, ironically I think I preferred the cheap seats for the atmosphere, but I'm glad I did both.

    Fresh from the Milan trip on Tuesday, the Saturday saw us watch a La Liga match between Barcelona and Deportivo. Again this was a great game, and we were up in the cheaper seats for this one, a great day out.

    A little tip is to try and get there early, savour the atmosphere and experience. They usually put on some sort of pre match show as well!

    See the Mighty Barca play football

    The Neu Camp Stadium, Barcelona

    Watch the might Barca play football, assuming the football season is on (normally between Sept to May time) and they are playing at home.

    The Catalans are fanatical about their football, so if you are neutral, go in the home end, and make sure you cheer the right team! You can get some huge crowds, especially when they play Real Madrid! This is considered a huge grudge match with both sides detesting eachother.

    One thing that is impossible for either side to forgive is one of thier players leaving to join the other club. This happened fairly recently when the Portuguese player Luis Figo left Barca to go to Real. He got death threats, and during the game, when he went to the corner of the pitch to take a "corner kick", a dead pigs head was thrown at him on the pitch! Like I say, these things are taken seriously.

    Camp Nou Stadium

    Camp Nou, the mother of all stadiums!

    Without a doubt, the Camp Nou Stadium is a must for lovers of football (soccer as we call it here in the states). It opened in 1957 and holds 100,000 spectators, and has been named a 5-star stadium, the highest distinction awarded by the UEFA, due to the quality of its facilities. As a visitor, you get to the see the stadium through the player's eyes and gain access to the dressing room area, the pitch, and sit on the benches where the world's top footballers have been. Americans won't be too interested in this, but Europeans will jump on this place!

    Barca against Betis Sevilla

    Go to a FC Barcelona game. Easy to reach with metro and a 5 min walk. Dont buy tickets for official prices. Its better to go to the stadium and buy 45 min before the game a 80 euro ticket for about 35 of max 40 euro of a SOCIO who has a brother or friend.....who was not able to come with....Sometimes there are young people who cheat you....they show a card, ask for the amount of money and lead you with a false card through the gate. Guards are in the complot too. They lead you to a nice place.....There you can sit. The worst thing is that the official owner of the seat occurs and then you have to move 3 ore 5 seats. Mostly there are only 60/70000 visitors and the capoacity is 115000.

    Equipment: See above.

    Nou Camp

    You might be fed up of me raving about Barcelona FC, but i'm determined to make you watch them play! At the moment they are one of the most exciting teams in the world to watch, with superstars such as the Brazilian Ronaldinho and Dutch superstar Patrick Kluivert playing for them. You can usually get a ticket, due to the vast number of seats their stadium has. Go there!

    Camp Nou

    "Camp Nou" (New field in catalan) is a great architectonical structure, worth to visit. There is also the museum of barça, for football lovers. I think is the second visited museum of Barcelona.
    Also, in Camp Nou plays once or twice every year the national catalan time, that you can see in the photo, in the match against Brasil.
    El Camp Nou és una gran estructura arquitectònica que val la pena visitar. S'hi troba el museu del barça, per amants el futbol. Crec que és el segon museu més visitat de Barcelona.
    Al Camp Nou hi juga un o dos cops a l'any la selecció catalana, que podeu veure en la foto, en el partit contra Brasil.

    The stadium Camp Nou (like most others) was built to create a brilliant atmosphere for Barca's matches. So don't pay 4 Euro to see Barca's tin cups ans old jerseys in the museum-try to get tickets for a match. Tickets available at the ticket office near Camp Nou or at Servi Caixa in town.
    Moreover the black market is always alive, but avoid the shabby old men with the pocket calculators, they are only there for profit. Better try to find some handsome fans who have tickets left. Enjoy it.

    Equipment: You get it there, a cold beer and real Barca-crisps.

  • HUGE football stadium!

    My boyfriend dragged me along to the Barcelona FC stadium and I must admit it was brilliant! I never imagined it would be that massive and you just have to stand for 5 mins with your mouth open! The museum is ok, but most of it is in Spanish. The shop has absolutely everything to do with the club but is pretty expensive. If you are wanting an official top I suggest you wait and go to a shopping mall where they are slightly cheaper.

    At the Nou Camp

    by Rahel Written Feb 10, 2004

    I couldn't watch a game of Kluivert and Co., but still the empty stadium is massive. In Switzerland sport arenas aren't that big, so I was stunned when I entered.
    The exhibition with pics and everything from the past is interesting and well done also. If you know football a little bit (and I just know it a little bit because of my father and my brothers - you understand), it's fun to wald around and see some familiar faces.
