Camp Nou

The stadium with the highest capacity in Europe

Camp Nou is, with a capacity of 100,000 spectators, Europe’s largest stadium and its museum is the most visited in Europe. It was inaugurated in 1957 under the name of Estadi del FC Barcelona, but it soon became known as Camp Nou (New Pitch) because it had replaced the old Camp de les Corts ground. This name was officially adopted in the 2000-01 season in accordance with the results of a popular postal vote.

What to visit at Camp Nou?

The Camp Nou Experience starts with a tour of the stadium following the route taken by Barça’s players from the changing rooms to the pitch. You can also access the chairman’s seats, the players’ bench and the press room, while the audio service narrates the history of the stadium and of FC Barcelona’s great victories.

The tour ends with access to the FC Barcelona Museum where photographs and records explain the trajectory of the club over more than 100 years. The museum also holds the trophies the club has won and personal objects of Barça’s legendary players.

For the most curious of you

  • Did you know? For a time, Camp Nou competed with Brazil's Maracanã stadium for the title of the world’s largest, but it was forced to reduce its capacity (originally 120,000) for safety reasons.
  • Local’s tip: Getting tickets for a Barça match is not always easy. If you miss out, you can always catch a Barça B team game at the Miniestadi. Who knows? You might be watching the next Messi!
