The massive stadium of Camp Nou ('New Field' in Catalan) is home to the legendary Futbol Club Barcelona. Attending a game amid the roar of the crowds is an unforgettable experience; the season runs from August to May. Alternatively, get a taste of all the excitement at the interactive Barça Stadium Tour & Museum.

Tickets to FC Barcelona matches are available at Camp Nou, online (through FC Barcelona's official website) and through various city locations. Tourist offices sell them – the branch at Plaça de Catalunya is a centrally located option – as do FC Botiga stores. Tickets can cost anything from €29 to upwards of €250, depending on the seat and match. On match day the ticket windows are open (at gate 9 from 11am until kick-off; at gate 14 from 9am-1.30pm). Tickets are not usually available for matches with Real Madrid.

You will almost definitely find scalpers lurking near the ticket windows. They are often club members and can sometimes get you in at a significant reduction. Don’t pay until you are safely seated.
