FC Barcelona Tickets

Hi everyone.

I'll be in Europe for the first time ever this May. I will be in Barcelona during one of FC Barca's home matches. Does anyone have experience attending a match at Camp Nou? Can anyone provide any pointers?

Does the stadium sell out? How picky are they about sitting in your actual seats (if I buy 3 seats in the same section but not next to each other, will I have a problem sitting with my friends)?

The game is against Osunna, so I don't think this is a huge game, but it is the last home match of the season, so can I expect a full stadium? Can I run the risk of buying tickets on game day or should I get them ASAP, and if so what's the best option?

Thanks!

Even though Barcelona isn't playing a high profile team, it's the last game of the season and the match where they will probably be receiving the championship league trophy if the current standings remain the same. But, Real Madrid is only six points behind, so that last match could be crucial. Thus, I would expect a sell out. Tickets, if available, can be purchased directly from the team web site:

I haven't done Camp Nou, but I've had several experiences with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Barca actually has a pretty good website in English where you can buy tickets...and I would suggest you do so ASAP. The match against Osasuna might actually be pretty important in the race to lead the league, so expect heavy attendance. And, no...it'll probably be a sellout, so you'll have to try to get all three seats together....if not, you can always ask your neighbours to move.

Thanks for the tips. My current plans are to buy from Barca's official website (which is great, btw), however tickets do not go on sale until a month before the match - about a week and a half from now.

Assuming I get tickets, what can I expect as far as traffic and such around game time? With our current plans, this is our last day in Barca before over-nighting to Munich, however if the game is played late, I suspect this could be a problem...

Should Barcelona win the trophy, the entire population of the city will be on the streets celebrating. I wouldn't miss that:)

Tom, going to Camp Nou was a lot of fun, we we're able to switch seat but our game was not sold out. We used the subway and it took us a good hour to get back to playa catalanya to give you an idea of the time. Streets we're very busy with Barca fans, i would not drive.

Agree with Martine....public transit, and expect delays. They don't build their football stadiums with masses of public parking, as they do here at home.
