FC Barcelona has one of the best football teams in the world.  On top of that, Camp Nou is also the largest stadium in Europe, the 2nd largest football stadium in the world, with 98,787 seats.  The stadium will is planned to have 105,053 after the planned renovation that began in 2017 and will be finished in 2021.  Us at CeleBreak loving playing football, and of course watching our team play at Camp Nou.  As result, we have some tips on how to purchase tickets so you can attend a match.

Before You Buy

Before you buy a ticket you should know how the ticket distribution works. In Camp Nou season ticket holders hold most of the seats so, but not all season ticket holders attend all matches and that’s where the tickets the season holders hold are put up to be resold. Every home game the season ticket holders can free his/her seat if they aren’t going to attend the match that’s when those tickets are available to be purchased by other people. But Camp Nou does have tickets you can buy, below are how to get tickets to a match.

Option 1: Buying Tickets Online

Once this happens you then have to purchase the ticket/s, I recommend that you do this online, but be aware of unofficial sites selling tickets most of the time it’s more than likely a scam. The best place to purchase tickets is the FC Barcelona website or Ticketmaster because it is an official FC Barcelona partner.

Option 2: Buying Tickets at Official Locations

The locations in Barcelona that you’re able to buy tickets at are: FC Barcelona ticket office at Camp Nou stadium, Tourist information office at Pl. Catalunya, Fnac stores, Official FC Barcelona shops. But be aware, the games could be sold out.  All the good seats might be taken meaning which makes it difficult to get more than one ticket and all be sitting together.

Option 3: Scalping Tickets

Another way to get tickets is to try and scalp tickets. People will try to sell tickets they have for higher prices before the game. But the seller usually drops the price once the game starts because they’re just trying to sell the ticket at that point. You can find people selling tickets (scalpers) around the stadium, so if you need to scalp a ticket you want to go to Camp Nou before the match starts. If you don’t care how much money you’ll be spending to watch Barcelona play a football match you should definitely scalp your ticket. This is more of a desperate measure to get tickets, because there’s so many other ways to get tickets. The negative thing about scalping tickets is that they could be fake another negative thing is that you’ll probably pay a lot more than the face value but that’s the thing about scalping tickets.

Finally, you have to pick up your tickets. But the best way to get your tickets is to print out at home. If that isn’t available you can save the ticket and print it off somewhere in Barcelona or if you have an iPhone/Android phone you can use an E-ticket that has a QR code that can be scanned at Camp Nou. You can pick up your tickets at the ticket office at the ticket box.  However, to be safe it is best to pick up your tickets a day before the match.  You will need a copy of the reference e-mail and a photo ID (ID card, passport or driver’s license).  After that, you are all set, enjoy the match!
