    What's the best site to buy tickets for the Spanish Super Cup?

    Hi everyone, longtime lurker first time poster.

    I live in the US and will be traveling to Barcelona for the first time on August 12 to hopefully watch the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

    It seems that Viagogo is a popular and user friendly site to buy tickets, but they charge for so many extras (VAT, shipping and handling, hidden fees).

    Can anyone recommend another cost effective site to purchasing tickets overseas?

    Thanks in advance...

    You will get from the official site for that game no bother.

    Thanks. But the official FCB site isn't selling them (yet). But I thought they only sell to members only?

    They will go on general public sale after members have been offered them if previous years are anything to go by.

    Okay thanks. Just buy them from the official site when they go on sale? (I guess I'll just keep checking until they are finally for sale)

    I would wait and try to buy them from official site and still can fall back on Viagogo etc.

    Have used viagogo a few times and you might over pay by quite a bit.

    Normally for the super copa it's easy to buy tickets. But i don't know for sure now because it's a clasico. But just wait until they give more information, once the games are confirmed. Then you still have enough time to buy tickets via resellers like viagogo. Date and time will be confirmed one month before the game so mid july.

    Agree, I'd do the same... wait a bit. It's disappointing to pay double price!

    Looks like thats the tickets on sale for the Supercopa, where is the best place to sit? i sat in the bottom section of Lateral last time i was there and those tickets are 216 euro, the ones behind the goal range from 97-117 euro, would it be a better atmosphere there?

    Yes, I just came here to say thanks for all the advice.

    If anyone else is a newbie like me, never buy from Viagogo!!!

    Just be patient and check everyday until fcbarcelona.com starts the sale.

    I paid about 200 euros to sit in the very front row on the lateral side 1-36. To put that in comparison Viagogo wanted about 450 euros.

    This will be not only my very first Barca home game but also the first ever El Clasico!!! (I've seen Barca live in Los Angeles on two occasions for friendly games against LA Galaxy)

    I also want to go to the supercup match on 12. August! Ticket are now available on the offical website. But ist still says "date and time to be confirmed".

    Is there a chance that the match will NOT be played on the 12. August or is it just a matter of kick-off-time?

    What section do you suggest?

    Is the Camp Nou expected to be soled out?

    Thanks a lot for any help!!

    It will either be played on August 11, 12 or 13. So you need to be flexible with your dates. If your only coming to Barcelona for one day, you might be disappointed. Or just wait until the date is confirmed.

    I paid almost 210 euros and am sitting in the lateral section in the very first row, I decided to splurge because I don't think I will be coming to Barcelona again in the near future. And how often do you have the opportunity to witness El Clasico? (especially if your traveling all the way from North America)

    I think if your attending the game by yourself (and only need 1 ticket) there is an unlikely chance the entire Nou Camp will be sold out. But if you want to sit with a group of people it might be a challenge to show up game time and try to wrangle enough tickets for your whole entourage.

    Dates were confirmed some days ago by real madrid tv, 13 and 16 August. Now exact times also. I will go watch the game also. I'm also sitting at the first ring. The sale went pretty quick, don't know how many tickets are left. There are always resellers who get an amount of tickets to sell.

    I really don't suggest third ring, just to high. If you sit to high on the second under the ring above you it's different atmosphere. My first clásico but other games don't have a really great atmosphere, I guess a clásico is better. If you are not a Barça supporter don't bother to watch a game if you are doing it for the atmosphere.
