Camp Nou Overview

Camp Nou is a football stadium in Barcelona, Spain, that is now formally known as Spotify Camp Nou due to a sponsorship deal. Since its opening in 1957, it has served as the stadium for FC Barcelona's home games. A total of 99,354 spectators can fit inside the stadium, making it the largest in Spain and Europe and the fourth largest in the world when it comes to association football venues.

Spotify Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona, is a mammoth of a stadium both in terms of size and attendance capacity. Camp Nou was constructed from 1954 to 1957, and it hosted its inaugural match between FC Barcelona and a team of Warsaw residents on September 24, 1957. Originally, Camp Nou had two levels and could accommodate 93,000 fans but now the camp can accommodate a total of 99,354 making it the biggest stadium in Europe in terms of capacity it holds.

Once known as Estadi del FC Barcelona, the stadium is now commonly known as Camp Nou. Both the 1972 and 1982 Cup Winners' Cup Finals were held at this stadium. If you're a football fan, and especially a fan of FC Barcelona, you can't afford to miss the Camp Nou Experience, a tour that will take you inside the stadium of the prestigious football club. The tour takes guests into the locker rooms, down the tunnel to the field (just like the players do before kickoff), and onto the grass (where so many iconic games have been played).

How To Reach

1. By Car: You can take a taxi along Travessera de les Corts, and you'll get there in about 15 minutes. But for those driving in from the west, the best route into Barcelona is along the Avenida Diagonal (B-23), which can be accessed via the Ronda de Dalt (the motorway that runs through the city's outskirts). 

2. By Metro: The Camp Nou stadium is conveniently located near a metro stop. Badal and Collblanc on the blue line are the closest stations (Line 5). There are signs along the way that will lead you to the stadium, which is only a five-minute stroll from the either. Stops along the blue line can be found at Sagrada Familia, Diagonal, and Sants Estació. From the city centre, the quickest way to reach Camp Nou is to take the green line (Line 3), and alight at either Maria Cristina or Palau Reial, which are both within a 5- to 10-minute walk of the stadium. Plaça Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia, and Liceu are all stops on the green line.
