FC Barcelona Game

Various
Sporting Event

Football, or soccer as it’s known in the U.S., is a religion in Spain. Barcelona’s team, FC Barcelona, plays at Camp Nou (C. Aristides Maillol, 12; fcbarcelona.com), a stadium built in 1957 in the western part of the city, and the concierge at the Hotel Arts (Carrer de la Marina, 19-21; 34-9/3221-1000; hotelartsbarcelona.com) can provide guests with a VIP match experience. A private car takes guests to and from the game and the concierge arranges the best tickets and dinner in Camp Nou Lounge, the stadium’s field-side restaurant. During the day, a private tour for guests of the Arts can also be arranged that includes the Visitor’s dressing room, Player’s tunnel, and the Messi Space, an area dedicated to the Argentinian superstar where you can see his five Ballons d’Or and three Golden Boots.

Those staying at the ABaC (Av. Tibidabo, 1; 34-9/3319-6600; abacbarcelona.com) can opt for a package that includes two nights accommodation, tickets to a match, and transfers to and from the game in a Mercedes. True football fans will want to schedule their Barcelona visit for El Clásico (El Clàssic in Catalan)—any match that pits FC Barcelona against their fierce rivals Real Madrid.
