Barça is one of the greatest European soccer teams of all times, and if you like soccer (European football) or sports in general, it would be a shame to miss the chance of watching a match in the spectacular Camp Nou.

Usually, Barça plays a match of the Spanish league at home every 15 days, on Saturday or Sunday, but there are also several mid-week games (European cups, Spanish Cup). You can check Barça's official website to find out the dates of upcoming matches or click the link below:-

Prices range from 18 € to more than 100 €. Since there are almost as many members as seats (and that's more than 100.000!), sometimes it's not easy to buy a ticket. You can go to the stadium's ticket booths on the day of the match, but for some games (like the Barça-Real Madrid classic) it will be simply impossible to acquire tickets, and it's best to use the online purchase option above.

The importance of Barça

Soccer is, without any doubt, the most important sport in Spain and in Barcelona. But this doesn't even begin to hint at the relevance that Barça has in Barcelona and in Catalonia. Weather aside, Barça is probably the subject most people resort to to make small talk, because practically everybody will know what Barça has done in the last match.

Part of this importance is due to the brilliant history of Barça, a team that has had some of the best players in the world: Kubala, Luis Suárez, Ricardo Zamora, Maradona, Johann Cruyff, Romario, Ronaldo, etc.

But what has made Barça so important is its alignment with Catalonian history. During the dictatorship of Franco, all manifestations of catalanism were forbidden, and Barça became a kind of surrogate national football team. This is the reason behind the popular saying: "[El Barça és] més que un club", Barça is something more than a football club.

The Barça museum

If you can't attend a match in Camp Nou, you still have the chance of seeing the stadium through a visit to Barça's museum. Barcelona has more and more important museums, but Barça's museum is the one that receives more visitors every year.

More interesting than the many trophies exposed, the small art gallery and the football memorabilia, is the possibility of touring the Nou Camp and taking part in a guided tour through the installations, including a visit to the changing rooms and the pitch itself.
