You’re probably looking for some tips to attend a FC Barcelona match. You’re about to go to one of the biggest stadiums in the world.
And once there, you expect to enjoy the magic of Leo Messi. All this surrounded, of course, by thousands of fans around. That’s right. This is the kind of unforgettable experience that Camp Nou offers.
I always recommend to do the Camp Nou Experience before your match. But not on the day the match takes place as the tour isn’t open then. That way you’ll know be more familiar with the area and the stadium itself. And you’ll have time to go to the store and get you FC Barcelona shirt.
But wait! Take a couple of minutes before hurrying off and putting on your Barça shirt, and continue reading…
Below you can find my tips to make the most of the day at the stadium watching one of the best football teams in the world.
If you have your tickets already, remember to put them on your mobile phone if you can, as this will avoid messing around with paper tickets and risking losing them.
The Camp Nou stadium is relatively close to the city center compared to other major cities.
As a rule of thumb,
Unfortunately, getting there can be a little tricky.
And please, refrain from trying to catch a cab, it will be nearly impossible. On top of it, traffic on a match day around the stadium will be a nightmare.
First and foremost, your FC Barcelona shirt! And, obviously, all the other accessories from the club that you may have purchased before the match.
As you can imagine, photos and videos are allowed. So you can use your smartphone, or even better your camera since the action will be a bit far.
You can also take food and drink with you, but make sure that the latter is be non-alcoholic, uncovered (no cap!) and less than 500ml. There are no lockers or any other storage facility at the entrance so you’ll be forced to throw away any forbidden items before entering the stadium.
And one final piece of advice. Leave your valuables at your accommodation, some 100,000 people gather on a match day and this is the perfect scenario for pickpockets. Take only what you need and you’ll be able to enjoy the experience without any stress.
As I was saying at the beginning of the article, one of the advantages of booking the the Camp Nou Experience in advance is that you can end going to the official FC Barcelona store at the Camp Nou. It spans over three floors so it’s huge! And, as you can imagine, there you can find anything related to the club.
So if you want to buy an official FC Barcelona shirt and wear it during the game, the best option is to purchase it there in advance. That way you’ll make sure it fits you perfectly!
Well, I won’t lie to you. Meeting the players on game day is tough.
