Camp Nou Seating Areas and Ticket Categories

Seating Areas and Ticket Categories

The terms Category 1, 2 ,3 and so on are the most commonly used in the marketplace to describe types of seating available at Spanish matches, and the relative quality (and therefore price) of each area of a ground. However, do not expect to find these terms printed on  tickets in Spain.

This diagram shows the categories of tickets available at FC Barcelona´s Camp Nou Stadium:

Camp Nou Seating

To help you decide, we use the following Category definitions:

Category One Premium Tickets (Cat 1 Premium)

Your seats will be in the most central sections in the lower half of the stadium, side view (see stadium plan). These are the most central Cat 1 seats and the best tickets available.

Category One Tickets (Cat 1)

Your seats will be in the best areas in the lower half of the stadium, side view. One of the following will be marked on your ticket: Lateral 1ª, Lateral 2ª or Tribuna.

Category Two Tickets (Cat 2)

Upper Side view, or lower Goal End view. Your seats will either be side view (but higher up than Cat 1) or the best seats of Goal End View. The following will be marked on your ticket:

– Side View: Lateral 3ª or General (Section or “Boca” 530 – 540)

– End View: Gol Baix, Gol 1ª, Gol 2ª

Category Three Tickets (Cat 3)

Upper End View (higher up than the Cat 2 seats).  The following will be marked on your tickets: Gol Nord 3ª, Gol Sur 3ª, General (Section or “Boca” 500 – 529 or 541 – 550).

Kick Off Times for Matches in Spain

League matches in Spain can be played on Saturdays or Sundays, (and occasionally Monday or Friday fixtures are possible). Notice that for most matches in Spain, because of the way TV rights are decided, (and maybe because many things tend to be arranged “last minute” in Spain!) definitive kick off times and even the dates of the game remain provisional until perhaps 7 or 8 days before the match.

When fixtures are announced at the start of each season for La Liga, Sunday dates are almost always given provisionally for each match. Then 7 or 8 days before each games, the definitive kick off time is given (usually Saturday or Sunday with kick off times usually between 1700 and 2200). If you are planning a football weekend in one of the Spanish cities like Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia, and wish to make your arrangements more than 8 days in advance, you must stay both Saturday and Sunday nights, arriving no later than about 1600 on the Saturday.
