'Barcelona Gathering Point'

The Gathering Point is the zone where the supporters can meet up and then take free buses and coaches to the stadium that will leave every few minutes in order to ensure everyone makes it to the game. This point will be in the Cipro-Aparcamiento Vía Angelo Emo station.

The Infopoint

Located on the road to the stadium, the Infopoint is an information centre set up to give logistic help to fans to try and resolve any problem that they have to tickets or to give information about the city.

The Festival of Champions
