Five places to watch football in Barcelona that aren’t the Camp Nou

It is hardly surprising that most tourists who like football have just one aim in mind when they head for a weekend in Barcelona – a visit to the Camp Nou to watch arguably the greatest team in history.

However for the dedicated football fan, there are also some good opportunities to watch other teams in Barcelona in addition to, or instead of, the big two, for a fraction of the price and with the opportunity to avoid the relentless flash bulbs and fellow visitors to the Catalan capital. Over the next pages are five grounds you could get to for the price of a one day travel pass (currently less than seven euros):

    Excellent piece Liam. Barcelona is THE place to go if you want to overdose on Football and stadiums, but do so on a budget

    Really enjoyed this piece Liam.

    Had the privilege to visit Nou Sardenya last year and it is truely surreal. Couldn’t be situated more ideally in terms of the City centre and what have you.
