There are a variety of ways to acquire tickets for an FC Barcelona game, but you should generally be prepared to pay anywhere between $80 and $400 for tickets. The most difficult parts of buying Barcelona FC tickets is actually getting the tickets, and by extension, getting tickets seated together. Since FC Barcelona is one of the most popular football teams in Spain, it also has one of the highest percentages of season ticket holders thus a lower availability of tickets in general. However season-ticket holders have the ability to release or “free” their seats before the game. According to the club’s website, the highest amount of seats are freed during the last 48 hours before a game. (Sometimes good things come to those who wait). However, if you’re not excited about waiting around, there are always ticket deals for upcoming FC Barcelona matches that you can check up on! In general, there may be very few seats that are side-by-side for individual ticket purchasers. However, going to a game and being surrounded by fellow supporters of the club is not a bad thing. Try to get two seats in the same zone, so you and your traveling partner can wave to each other and meet up in the concession stands at halftime. It is better to experience the game than to miss out just because you cannot sit together.
Just as exciting as the team is the legendary stadium they call home. Camp Nou, the well-known stadium of the FC Barcelona team, was built after the original stadium was torn down in 1954. The previous stadium housed 60,000, and today Camp Nou can hold over 96,000 spectators, making it the largest stadium in Europe and the 11th largest in the world. As a football club that is owned by its actual supporters, it is also one of the easiest to buy tickets from. Visiting Barcelona can sometimes include a chance encounter with FC Barcelona if you buy tickets at the gate, but if you are a die-hard fan it is much better to plan ahead to ensure you can get access to one of those prime seats. The stadium is also accessible by public transit including the Tramway, the Metro and multiple bus lines. Although it’s said that any seat in the house provides a great view, a seat in the middle grandstands is probably the most coveted area in the stadium. Being able to be in the middle of the action is truly the pinnacle of watching great football.
