Match night at the Nou Camp - Barcelona

Match night at the Nou Camp

Camp Nou F.C.Barcelona Review

Home of FC Barcelona.

A superb European stadium. I've been here three times now and have won drawn and lost.

I stood up at the very top, in the cheap seats, in 1994 when there was a crowd of 115,000. The terrace I was standing on was looking a bit sorry for itself and needed a deal of maintenance. I'm not sure the fence would have held us if United had scored. Fortunately for us we lost 4-0.

Second time I was a bit lower and along the side of the pitch. A much better view of a cracking 3-3 draw.

Finally I was nearly behind the goal with a great view of the two United late late goals, in our 2-1 Champions League Final 1999 win over Bayern Munich.

It now has a seating capacity of 98,000.

I look forward to going back.

Equipment: Not too much in the way of cover for the football fan so let's hope it not raining.
