FC Barcelona’s board of directors have agreed to a 50% reduction in the prices of season ticket prices for the 2023-24 season, which will be spent at Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys.
The move has been made in response to fan’s displeasure at the Spanish LaLiga club’s initial ticketing details, which saw up to a 30% increase in price for season tickets.
The initial prices stood at €1,738 (£1,500/$1,900), €1,002, €905 and €723, and the reduction in prices will see season ticket passes now cost between €870 and €360. These prices also reflect a 25% decrease compared to current prices at Camp Nou.
Barcelona is making the temporary switch to Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys while work is carried out on Camp Nou, as part of the club’s wide-ranging Espai Barça project.
Barcelona vice-president Elena Fort said: “Since the first prices were set, which responded to economic demands in the face of a difficult year, the club set out to work with the passivity of being able to readjust the prices.”
The move also means that any season ticket sales made to date have been cancelled, and sales will begin again from Tuesday, May 30. An exclusive pre-sale period of 48 hours will be available to current holders that have attended a minimum of 85% of home matches in the current season. Those that had already made their season ticket request in the first purchase process will also have access to this pre-sale.
Then from June 1, season tickets will be placed on sale for other current season-ticket holders with the new prices.
