How to Get to Camp Nou
500 meters away from Camp Nou there is the tram stop Avinguda de Xile/Camp Nou of the modern tramway of Barcelona. From this stop you can reach the Francesc Macià plaza in just a few minutes. After the matches, the service usually gets increased to accommodate the influx of passengers.
Two different metro lines reach the Camp Nou stadium, L3 (stops Palau Reial and Les Corts) and L5 (stops Badal and Collblanc). Depending on your access gate into Camp Nou, it is recommended getting off at different stops:
Access 1 - 10: Palau Reial (L3), approx. 11 minutes walk
Access 11 - 16: Collblanc (L5), approx. 7 minutes walk
Access 17 - 18: Badal (L5), approx. 6 minutes walk

Access to Your Seat
Your ticket to see FC Barcelona has the following information:
There are four areas of the Camp Nou stadium:
- the tribune (Tribuna), situated towards Av. Arístides Maillol
- the longside (Lateral), towards Carrer de la Maternitat
- the North goal (Gol Nord), on Av. de Joan XXIII
- the South goal (Gol Sud), on Travessera de les Corts
At the same time, each of these four areas is divided in three levels or stands, with the first stand being closest to the pitch and the third, the highest and farthest. Besides, every area of the stadium has its access (21 access) and gates (107 gates).
Let's see what each number means, so you can reach your seat without any problem:
Access (Accés): this is the access gate to the stadium from the street. Even if on your ticket the access number closest to your gate will show up, it is not compulsory that you enter the stadium through it. You can use any access gate, you only need to show you have an official ticket (no need to validate it at this time). The access numbers show up in red on the vertical panels around the entire stadium.
Gate (Porta): this is the gate through which you must enter the stadium. The gate number appears on a red-light panel located right above the gate. In this case it is compulsory that you enter through the correct gate, which is mentioned on your ticket. You must also pass your official FC Barcelona ticket on the barcode reader. If you have any issue, do not worry, personnel from the Club are always present, ready to help you.
Entrance (Boca): you are now inside the Camp Nou stadium. You will stop in a hallway which goes around the access to the stands. Now you must find your entrance, the place inside the stadium through which you must reach the sector where your seat is. The entrance numbers are shown in yellow on a horizontal panel, located above each access.
Row (Fila): this is the row where your seat is. The identifying numbers are located on the side of each row’s seat and follow a consecutive order, from the lowest to the highest.
Seat (Seient): the seat number is marked on the chair. Please take into consideration that the seat numbers are split into odd and even. When you access from your corresponding Entrance, you will find the odd numbers on one side and the even numbers on the other side of the aisle. Find your number… and enjoy the match!
