Going to a match at Camp Nou
How to choose a match at Camp Nou? Here are some tips to make your choice!
This is your first time
Is this your first time at the FC Barcelona Camp Nou? Then, all the matches are worth it! The stadium, the atmosphere, seeing Messi or Neymar, everything is unique no matter the opponent. After that first experience, you will always have the opportunity to come back for a big game like the Clasico or a match between November and February to find more affordable prices. It's your turn to play!
Come from Friday to Monday
The final schedules of the matches are only known 5 weeks or less before the match. You also have the choice: either you wait until the date is definitely known to organize your trip to Barcelona, or you anticipate so to have better prices for airplanes and hotels. In the case you want book in advance, plan to come to Barcelona from Friday evening to Monday morning. Otherwise you may arrive on Sunday morning when the match took place the day before (it has already happened to more than one supporter).
Where to seat in the stadium?
Would you rather have an overview? Watch the match as the coach? See the players from nearby? You are right! The best place to see a match is the one that pleases you the most, it's very personal. For example, I love being on the second floor. This is where you feel like you are closest to the players and have a global vision of the game. But before reaching this conclusion I saw more than 100 games from the stands. So if you can not make your choice, ask specialists! They will help you find the place of your dreams that will make your game at Camp Nou a unique experience!
