FC Barcelona tickets and how to buy them

Buy FC Barcelona tickets

The home stadium of FC Barcelona, Camp Nou, is packed at every game. Moreover, should one of the matches called “el classic” (a game between the long-time traditional rivals, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid) or another important game take place while you are there, the hype surrounding the upcoming event and the demand for tickets reach a climax. Even at such times, tourists should do their best not only to attend a game, but also to take a tour of the stadium and the football club museum. In terms of size, Camp Nou is positioned at second in the world among stadiums designed exclusively for football, with a capacity of around 100,000 people. (The size is inferior only to that of the Mexican stadium, “Aztec.”) Excursions around the stadium enjoy extreme popularity not only because this is the home field of the legendary team, Barça, but also because it is the place where several matches in all the prestigious European and world championships take place. In 1992, the stadium even hosted the football tournaments of the Olympic Games.

It is possible to buy FC Barcelona tickets in several ways that are reliable. While each of these methods has its own nuances, if we review the options in more detail, it becomes quite easy to understand the whole process.

  • Buy FC Barcelona tickets via an official distributor. There are several websites that provide the schedules for football matches and offer the option to book a ticket. These reliable resources have a quota for a limited number of seats. This option provides the following advantages: the possibility of transportation and a native language escort, the ability to book tickets for adjacent seats for your group members, and the chance to secure the ticket refund service. Nevertheless, there are also some drawbacks to this way of buying FC Barcelona tickets to Camp Nou. First of all, at times the price is inflated considerably. Second, matches are frequently postponed, but these companies do not inform buyers about the changes to the schedule. Thus, if you do not monitor the calendar consistently, you could lose the price of a ticket.
  • Buy FC Barcelona tickets on the club’s official website, www.fcbarcelona.com/tickets/things-to-do-in-barcelona. With this option, the price will be lower than the cost of a ticket from the distributors. In order to figure out how the website operates, it is helpful to be fluent in English. A disadvantage is that there is no option to buy two seats next to each other. In case a match is cancelled or postponed, the ticket fee is not reimbursed. In order to avoid such a situation, it is important to be aware of certain tips.

When planning to attend a game as part of your vacation in Barcelona, keep in mind any potential postponements due to bad weather conditions or because of the club management. It is common practice for the matches to be postponed from Sunday to Monday or the following Saturday, or from Wednesday to Tuesday or Thursday. In order to avoid the possibility of losing your FC Barcelona tickets for tourists, it is extremely helpful to plan some free days before and after the day on which the match is scheduled.

About 86% of the seats for Barça matches are assigned to seasonal subscription holders. (Only Spanish citizens who hold the requisite IDs are eligible to purchase such subscriptions.) A portion of the remaining tickets is distributed among sponsors and special guests. The rest of the tickets are placed on sale. This does not mean that visitors are totally deprived of the chance to attend a game, however. Camp Nou features a system called “silent leisure,” according to which subscription holders have until 72 hours prior to a match to confirm their intention to attend the event. If they fail to confirm, their seats become vacant and available to any other visitor. Accordingly, approximately 18,000 seats become vacant on the eve of every match.

One person can purchase 6 tickets for all matches, except for the category А+ and А++. Should you wish to buy FC Barcelona tickets during the play-off or League of Champions games, or for a match against Real or Atletico, the maximum number of tickets sold to one person is two tickets.

  • Another way to attend a Barça game is to buy tickets at one of the ticket desks at the stadium. Ticket desks can be found near entrances 9 and 14. The ticket desks next to Entrance 15 are open from 9:00 am until 17:00 from Monday to Thursday all year round (except for official holidays). The desks are open on Fridays from 9:00 am until 14:30 and on Saturdays from 9:00 am until 13:30. You can buy FC Barcelona tickets at Entrance 9 from Monday to Saturday (10:00 am - 18:15) and on Sundays (10.00 am - 14:30). To reach the Camp Nou ticket desks, you can take either the metro (to Maria Cristina or Les Corts metro stations) or buses # 7, 15, 43, 67, 68, 74, 75, L12, L50, L60 y L62.
  • Another convenient option is to book a ticket by phone at +34 90 218 9900. The operators speak English, Spanish, and Catalan. It is recommended that you inform yourself in advance about the payment and the possibility to return a ticket. Payments by credit and debit cards are accepted.
  • Recently, the Spanish bank “La Caixa” has launched a special system allowing fans to buy FC Barcelona tickets for tourists at the ATMs in their banking network. The only thing required for this option is a plastic card with the necessary sum in the bank account.

Camp Nou stadium is divided into several sectors that, in turn, are split into zones. The ticket price depends on the zone in which the seat is located. The first category includes premium seats and an open sector zone positioned along the sides of the football field. The second category includes the seats behind the gates located on the lower and middle levels. The third category includes the places on the highest tier of the stadium.
