What is it like for buying tickets outside the ground off people? I’ve heard a lot of people sell them, especially students. If tickets are just emailed to people then if they just print the tickets off are there a lot of fakes, or people selling the same ticket multiple times?
I can guarantee you all one thing - because of the way the ticketing system works with FCB, you will always find a ticket on the official website. Irrespective of what game it is, there is always tickets that suddenly start showing up on the official FCB website. You're talking about a stadium of 100k people, it's basically impossible that every ticket is sold out. What happens is, most members who are unsure / don't care that much tend to give their tickets to friends and family, and if they aren't doing any of that, they open it up for sale.
However,, a disproportionate number of people open up their tickets one day before / on the day of the game. Whether it's the clasico, the United quarter final, Tottenham, Lyon, etc. Each and every game, my friends were able to easily find tickets all of a sudden, at the last moment. The exact same thing will happen for Liverpool too, only problem is, people naturally get nervous and assume they aren't going to get tickets, and end up overpaying third party's for them.
My suggestion to those who want to fly down, I'd say do it. If you don't get tickets on the official website, getting tickets from third party's isn't that hard, you can always find someone who knows someone (For example, I know quite a few tickets being sold by my friends in school right now, legacy carnet holders).
Good luck to those looking for tickets, and hope to see you guys at the Camp!
I tried buying tickets, the tickets went into my basket and allowed me to enter the payment details, but when you click finalize payment the payment failed and asked me to try again. Tried different credit cards that I know work as well I had a google and this seems to happen quite a lot to people on the Barcelona ticketing system as there were lots of posts with the same issue that I experienced. I know have several payments showing as pending, but no tickets, or any confirmation that the payment went through.
When you say people open up their tickets for sale one day before or on the day of the game, how does that happen? Do they give it back to Barcelona and it's then listed on the official ticket site? Does the person have the ability to list the ticket, or do the club have to do it, therefore tickets will only appear on the site during the opening hours of the club?
I keep checking the site all the time and it lets you select a section as if tickets are there, but when you click to buy one it always just then says 'Seats no longer available. Please select different ones.'
Desperate for a ticket for this match, but want to buy from an official outlet or a trusted person. I don't want to take a gamble with a tout.
Any help is greatly appreciated
In recent years these have been the top attendances in CL:
97183 - Chelsea 2018
96708 - United 2019
96290 - PSG 2017
96290 - Juventus 2017
96022 - PSG 2013
It's never been completely sold out in CL. It might happen vs Liverpool though.
I'm measuring my balls to see if they're big enough for me to buy flight tickets now and risk being without match tickets.
