FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid
El Clasico, or ‘The Classic’, is the name given to football’s greatest rivalry and one of the world’s most popular sporting events… FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid.
On the surface the game represents the two greatest footballing teams in Spain – some would say the world – which would make it an arresting enough contest in it’s own right. What sports fan wouldn’t want to see up-and-coming talents like Pedri and Ansu Fati, alongside new signing Lewandowski, take on the experience of Benzema, Modric, Kroos and co. ? But underneath the surface there is much more at stake.
FC Barcelona‘s motto has always been Mes que un club, or ‘More Than a Club’ and, in the face of oppression of the Catalan culture, a victory for Barcelona was seen as more than just a sporting victory – it was seen as a battle won in the war of Catalan vs. Spanish nationalism.

This political aspect of El Clasico can’t be understated, as during the Franco era (which lasted from 1939 to 1975), the Catalan culture and language were actively repressed by Spain’s centralist dictator who banned the teaching of Catalan in schools and the use of the language in any official or public capacity. In these difficult times for the region, love of FC Barcelona was one of the only ways Catalans could express their regional identity and for them Real Madrid, with their ties to the capital, Spanish monarchy and Franco himself, represented their oppressors and with it Spanish arrogance.
This political aspect of El Clasico can’t be understated… love of FC Barcelona was one of the only ways Catalans could express their regional identity…
Whilst Catalonia’s position as an Autonomous Region of Spain is much preferable to those darker days, the recent cries for full independence means that the political significance of El Clasico has lost little of the piquancy of old… it’s always a full-blooded, and often bad-tempered contest, with both Catalan and Spanish pride at stake.
Dispossessing Lionel Messi was never easy!
Not only that, but as both Barcelona and Real Madrid typically play at a level above the next best teams in Spain, the team that fares better in the two Clasicos of the season (the home and away fixtures of La Liga, played in Camp Nou and the Bernabeu Stadium) often go on to win the league.
Tickets for Barça vs. Real Madrid
Naturally tickets for El Clasico are rarer than gold dust… I mean anyone can grind up a bit of gold into small particles, but show me the man with a spare ticket to FC Barcelona vs. Madrid!
Your best bet is to study La Liga schedule and buy your tickets through a reputable ticket booking agency ahead of time. If you’re extremely lucky you may even be able to buy them via the two team’s official sites. More info on both below.
1. Ticket Compare (Best Comparison Site)
Probably the best place to search is Ticket-Compare.com as they handily compare the prices of several agents and resellers, helping you get a much better deal. Given that some resellers add a HUGE mark up, this is a really smart website to go through, as you are almost guaranteed to get the cheapest deal possible. That could mean saving hundreds of euros in this case!
FIND BEST-PRICED TICKETS!
The Ticket Compare website is arguably best place to start your search!
2. Official Club Websites
With the caveats listed above, you can try to book directly through the clubs’ websites.
How Much Do El Clasico Tickets Cost?
Well how long is a piece of a string… if you do manage to nab them on one of the clubs’ official sites (you’ll have to log on the second they go on sale!) you might end up paying just €150 or so. But chances of that happening are something akin to winning the lottery, as local fans and members will be snapping those up pronto. Tourists and travellers will likely have to go through an agency, where you can expect to pay from €300 to €350 for a category three ticket (ie. behind the goal, at the top of the stadium). If you want to be pitch-side over the half way line then you might be looking at €500+, whilst VIP boxes cost more than most people’s monthly salaries.
When Is The Next Clasico?
Let’s take a look at the scheduled fixtures for the 2022 / 2023 season:
The next fixture(s) in football’s greatest derby are:
19th March 2023 (TBC)
Where: Camp Nou stadium, Barcelona
Competition: La Liga
Tickets: Buy them here, from €382
As well as the home and away fixtures of La Liga, depending on Copa del Rey and Champions League draws, the two teams may meet a third, fourth or even fifth time in any given season. We’ll keep this page updated, so be sure to bookmark us.
Top Tip: One final warning, sometimes these games are rescheduled by one day (often moving from a Saturday to a Sunday for example, or vice versa), so try to keep your flights and travel arrangements flexible if at all possible, or allow for a day either side of the game.
Other Barça Fixtures
If you have a chance to see El Clasico, grab it! But if you travel dates don’t align, any chance to watch the mighty Barça in the vast 99,000 seater stadium of Camp Nou is not to be missed!
You can check out the full list of FC Barcelona fixtures on Ticket Compare and find the best priced tickets for any given game. Just be sure that you purchase them for a home game.
Games against local rivals RCD Espanyol are always fruity (plus it means you can see Barça ‘away’ still here in Barcelona, in Espanyol’s Cornella-El Prat Stadium).

Check your entry point
F.C. Barcelona’s stadium is very big, so we recommend that once you’ve bought your ticket and before going to the stadium, you check the door by which you should enter the Camp Nou, which is shown on your ticket.
How much does it cost to attend an F.C. Barcelona match?
There’s no doubt that attending a football match in Spain isn’t cheap, but if there’s a team which is really worth paying to see, it has to be F. C. Barcelona.
The price range is fairly wide; it doesn’t usually vary according to which team Barça are playing against, or for which tournament, with some exceptions, but you’ll find the main differences in prices depend on where you would like to sit.
The cheapest tickets are the ‘category 3’ seats, and the most expensive are those marked as ‘VIP Silver’.
How long does the season last, and which matches can I attend?
The season usually starts in the middle or at the end of August, and finishes towards the middle or end of May. Normally the first match of the season is that which is played for the Joan Gamper trophy, which is a friendly in spite of there being a trophy at stake, organised by F.C. Barcelona and always played at the Camp Nou.
Champions League: Mid-September to mid-May.
La Liga (The Spanish Premier Division): late August to mid-May.
Copa del Rey (The King’s Cup): mid-October to mid-May.
Calendar of the league matches, Champions League and Copa del Rey
Below, and through the link we have given you, you’ll be able to check the calendar of F.C. Barcelona’s home fixtures for La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey. The dates and times of some of the matches isn’t yet confirmed, especially those of La Liga, that are scheduled to take place within the space of a few weeks.

F.C. Barcelona’s most interesting matches
Without doubt, the most significant match of the season for the vast majority of F.C. Barcelona fans is the La Liga match against Real Madrid, Barça’s main rival each year for the trophy, and it always offers more than a straightforward football match.
Other important games are those that are played against R.C.D. Espanyol (Barcelona’s other team, so it has the atmosphere that’s typical of a Derby), against Atlético de Madrid and against Valencia, all of which are rivals who promise exciting duels against Barça. The Champions League matches are also much anticipated, especially the knockout stages.

Map and how to get to Camp Nou stadium?
To get to Camp Nou and to return to your accommodation after the match, you can either go by public transport (Metro, bus, tram or taxi), or you can go by private car (your own car or motorbike). All of these options have their advantages and in some cases disadvantages.
Address: Av. Arístides Maillol, s/n.
Nearly everyone who attends a Barça match chooses to get to the Camp Nou by public transport, especially in the Metro, bus or tram, as they are usually quicker and cheaper.
By metro: Collblanc (Line 5), les Corts, Maria Cristina, Palau Reial and Zona Universitaria (Line 3).
By bus: 7, 33, 54, 67, 75, 113, H6, H8, L12, L50, L62, L79, L97 and the tourist bus.
Night bus (NitBus): N2, N3 and N14.
By tramway (TRAM): Zona Universitaria, Palau Reial, Pius XX (T1, T2, T3).
Some F.C. Barcelona matches finish rather late, but in the vast majority of cases the Metro, buses and trams are still running, and often the number and frequency of services is increased, to ensure that fans can get home quickly after leaving the stadium. The most convenient option might be to take a taxi, but it’s by no means the cheapest option.
Many fans prefer the freedom of being able to drive to the stadium. Parking your car on the streets close to the Camp Nou on a match day will be practically impossible, so your only option will be to use one of the nearby car parks.
As far as motorbikes and mopeds are concerned, the vast majority of fans usually park them on the street without too many problems, and without the police paying too much attention to bikes that aren’t parked strictly legally. In spite of this, fans are increasingly choosing to park their motorbike in an official parking spot, for a reasonable price.
Reserve your parking!
✅ TRAVEL CARDS
Girona is raffling off tickets for the match against Barcelona with the help of… quest
25 January 2023 • 22:37
January 28 is approaching, and on this day there will be a big holiday in Catalan Girona – Barcelona will come to visit, as part of the nineteenth round of the Spanish championship.
And the club management, in order to stir up the excitement even more, decided to repeat the practice of the 2018/2019 season – to conduct a so-called quest in one well-known social network, the essence of which is to search for tickets hidden all over the city. Of course, the “search groups” receive tips and directions through the club application.
The quest will last until the evening of January 25, and on the 28th, on Saturday, the teams will fight each other starting at 18:15 Moscow time.
