Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium is the largest stadium in Europe with an official capacity of 99,354. This is reduced to 96,336 for football matches organised by UEFA. In spite of this enormous capacity FC Barcelona has approximately 103,000 ‘socios’ which means that the ground cannot accommodate all its season ticket holders. Even though you might see empty seats on Sky TV when watching a match at the Nou Camp this doesn’t mean that tickets were available. It simply means that members did not attend.
There is a process whereby members can sell their season ticket to the club on a match to match basis and on these occasions a few seats do become available. To avoid disappointment it’s a better idea to pre-book tickets through our ticketing service and have your tickets delivered to any hotel you specify. These tickets are supplied by an official agent of FC Barcelona and are fully guaranteed. See Barcelona Tickets.

Directions to the Nou Camp
Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium lies about 3km north west of the Ramblas. If you book your tickets with Spanish Fiestas return transport is provided to the match from the bottom of the Ramblas. The Metro service is by far the best public transport option on match day although bus and taxi services are also available.
Nou Camp by Metro
If you’re staying near the Ramblas you can get on the green Metro line 3 at Plaça de Catalunya or at Liceu (right outside the Opera House and on the same side of the Ramblas) heading in the direction of Zona Universitaria. Get off at Maria Cristina Leaving the underground by the exit marked “Sortida: Av. Diagonal”. As you come out of this exit you will see two huge black towers owned by La Caixa on the other side of the road. Keep them to your left and walk about 200m along Avinguda Diagonal where you’ll see a road sign for FC Barcelona and Joan XXIII.On the other side of the road you’ll see the Hotel Princesa Sofia. Cross the main road (the Avinguda Diagonal) here and take a left after the hotel heading down Joan XIII. You will see the stadium about 200m ahead of you. Some fans prefer to get off at Les Corts which is slightly closer, just follow the crowd.
An alternative route by Metro is to take the blue line 5 heading for Cornella Centre then get off at Collblanc and follow signs for the stadium.
After the match with thousands of people looking for transport the metro is by far the best way to get back to the Ramblas area if that’s where you’re staying. You can get a beer at a bar on the way to the station to let the crowds die down a little as the Metro operates until 2am.
Nou Camp by Public Bus
The following bus lines serve the Nou Camp Stadium: 7, 15, 43, 67, 68, 74, 75, L12, L50, L60 and L62, however, with all the traffic on match days it’s a much better idea to use the very fast and efficient Metro system.
Nou Camp by Taxi
A taxi to the stadium from around the Ramblas area shouldn’t cost more than €12, however, the traffic can be so bad that the meter creeps up even further. After the game there are no taxis available for a long time after the final whistle and all the streets near the Nou Camp are packed with traffic making the Metro the best public transport option.
Nou Camp by FREE BUS
If you book FC Barcelona tickets through this website we provide a FREE coach service to and from the match.
