One of the most significant days in Barca’s history was December 25, 1970, when the first women’s football match was played at Camp Nou. Another will take place on March 30, 2022, when Barca’s women’s team will face none other than Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals at the same venue. The Blaugrana are looking to become European champions for the second consecutive year and in doing so set a new attendance record. To do this, Jonatan Giráldez’s team will need all the support they can get from fans and members of both genders.
Camp Nou is preparing a mosaic to welcome the team to the pitch. Fans reacted amazingly, with the first tickets selling out two months before the game. Members were given 24 to reserve up to four free seats each, paying only the processing fee. After this period, non-members could also buy tickets for prices ranging from 9 to 15 euros.
The remaining 6,000 tickets to see the Women’s Clásico went on sale on March 17, and the last ones are still available for any fans who want to be there for the big occasion.
March 30 will also be a charity event, during which the club is calling on fans to come to the game to bring baby food to the various collection points around the pitch to support children displaced by the war in Ukraine.
In collaboration with the Red Cross, tents will be open from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at entrances 15, 9 and 1, where products such as baby milk powder, baby cereal powder, porridge, snacks and biscuits for children and Juice.
Second game at the Camp Nou
This will be the second time the three-time winner women’s team will play at the stadium. In January 2021 they played the league derby against Espanyol at the Camp Nou to mark the 50and anniversary of the first women’s game ever played on the site, with a City of Barcelona Select team.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this match had to be played behind closed doors. But this time the Camp Nou gates will be open and the aim is to attract the biggest crowd possible for a match as vital as a Champions League quarter-final.
Flawless Champions League
The team coached by Jonatan Giráldez marched tirelessly throughout the tournament. They won their group with six wins from six games, scoring 24 goals and conceding just one. And as fate would have it, Barca drew Real Madrid, who finished second in their own group, in the first knockout round, meaning Europe’s first-ever Clásico against a side that are contesting the UWCL for the first time.
The prize for the winners is a game against Arsenal’s winner against Wolfsburg. The games on the other side of the table are Bayern Munich vs PSG and Juventus vs Olympique Lyonnais.
The Camp Nou is getting ready
The club organizes a series of free activities off the pitch on the weekends before the big game on March 30. [afegir enllaç a calendari detallat]
On the weekend of March 26 to 27, games for adults and children, such as 3×3 basketball and futsal matches on specially laid out courts, and the bravest can practice at the skate park..
The idea is for friends and family to do something different with their weekends, while taking advantage of the other dining and leisure facilities along Rambla del Barça, including the Barça Café, which welcomes visitors entering through access 9.
There will also be music, including freestyle rap contests featuring different women’s groups from across the city. On Sunday, a particularly special guest judge, NG, considered one of the hottest emerging talents in today’s freestyle scene, gets thousands of hits for her “battles” on YouTube.
Guest DJs will also perform every Saturday and Sunday from 3-7 p.m.
Parking reserved for pass holders
Spectators will only be able to park their vehicle on club grounds if they have a parking pass for the current season. On this occasion, holders of a parking pass will not be able to park in their usual area, and will have to follow the instructions of the club staff when parking their vehicle.
