Camp Nou was built between 1954 and 1957 and officially opened on the 24th of September 1957 with a match between FC Barcelona and a selection of players from the city of Warsaw. The stadium replaced Barcelona’s previous ground Camp de les Corts, which, though it could hold 60,000 supporters was still too small for the growing support of the club.
Camp Nou has been used for various purposes other than football, often hosting major concerts including artists such as Julio Iglesias, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel and in 1982, Pope John Paul II celebrated mass for a congregation of over 121,000 on the occasion of being made an honorary citizen of Barcelona.
Camp Nou is situated 5 kms east of the city centre of Barcelona, Spain. The nearest airport is Barcelona Airport – El Prat and is approximately 13 kms to the city centre. From the airport you can take the RENFE train, Aerobus express bus service or a taxi. Getting from the city centre to Camp Nou on public transport can be done via the metro L3 station Les Corts.
Due to matches and events hosted at the stadium, please go to the official website for current times.
