FC Barcelona Camp Nou tickets: The ultimate experience for true football lovers!

FC Barcelona Camp Nou tickets

Barcelona's Camp Nou is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic stadiums in the world. Witnessing the magical Lionel Messi, Neymar or Andres Iniesta surrounded by their impressive 99,000-strong crowd has to be the ultimate experience for any true football lovers.

The Camp Nou has been the FC Barcelona stadium since 24th of September 1957, the date of its inauguration. It was designed by architects Francesc Mitjans Miró and Josep Soteras Mauri and it was constructed between 1955 and 1957, using mainly concrete and iron. The whole project cost a staggering 288 million pesetas, which meant the club would spend the following years in heavy debt. 

Although it was originally going to go under the official name of ‘Estadi del FC Barcelona’, it soon came to be popularly known as the 'Camp Nou' (the ‘new ground’), as opposed to the club’s old home at Les Corts. It was not until the 2000/2001 season that  the decision was made to make ‘Camp Nou’ the official name of the stadium. 


With a capacity of 99,354, it is now the biggest stadium in Europe. However, the total capacity has varied over the years owing to different modifications. When it was first opened in 1957, it held 93,053 spectators, which would be increased to 120,000 in 1982 on occasion of the FIFA World Cup. However, the introduction of new regulations outlawing standing areas reduced the stadium’s capacity in the late 1990s to just under 99,000.

In the 1998-99 season, UEFA recognised the services and functionalities of the Camp Nou by awarding it five star status.

Apart from being the stage for all of FC Barcelona’s home matches, the Camp Nou has also witnessed several major international finals, including Cup Winners Cup and Champions League finals, and the football final of the 1992 Olympic Games. But it has not only been used for sports, but also several other major international events, such as concerts given by Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson and groups like U2.

FC Barcelona Fans Camp Nou tickets

Unsurprisingly, the Camp Nou continues to attract local fans and visitors in equal measure. Having been fortunate enough to attend Barcelona home matches from a very young age, I must say that those who can stretch their budget enough to travel to the beautiful Catalan capital should certainly take advantage and buy a ticket to watch Lionel Messi and his FC Barcelona teammates live. It would definitely be a memorable experience you and yours will never forget.

"But where to start?" I hear you asking. Fortunately, you can check Barca's schedule and whether tickets for the game you want are still available right here. We are proud to announce that, due to the agreement we have established with the Fundacion Leo Messi, a percentage of the price you pay for your tickets will be donated to the Argentinean star's charity on your behalf. A win-win situation, right?
