Practical information : Move & Laze around Barcelona
Budget & Tips
If you want to attend a game at the Camp Nou without breaking the bank, you should know that Barça sets its rates according to the opposing team and the season. The cheapest period is the winter, more or less between November and February, against teams that have just been promoted to the first division or that finished in the last places the previous year. Tickets for the King's Cup, whose matches take place around January-February, are generally very affordable. Just like the Joan Gamper Trophy in mid-August.
What's very local
With the proximity of the sea and a generally mild and sunny climate, Catalans are avid beach sports enthusiasts. Along the coast, water sports schools are legion! You can practise wind surfing, paddle, kayaking, surfing, sailing, diving... And for those who want to stay dry, yoga on the sand, jogging or rollerblading on the sea promenade or beach volleyball also have a lot to offer!
To be booked
If you would like to attend a game at Camp Nou, check the Liga calendar available around mid-July, four weeks before the start of the competition. Note that Barça play their home games from around mid-August to mid-May. Finally, please note that match schedules are only fixed a few weeks in advance. Some matches may be scheduled on Sunday evening, so plan to return on Monday! In the Champions League, ticket sales for the group phase begin once the draw has been made. In the case of the Gamper Trophy, tickets go on sale three to four weeks before the match (around mid-July).
Tickets for the Classico or the Champions League are expensive... and rare! In case of out of stock, you will have to go through an unofficial dealer. Be vigilant and don't forget that scams are common!
