Champions League back at Camp Nou

Marc Guillén

Five months on and the Champions League is back at the Camp Nou. Tuesday brings the visit of a classic of this competition, Dynamo Kiev.

The Champions League winners of last season are about to play their first home game in the tournament as part of their title defence. It’s been almost half a year since the Camp Nou was the venue on April 28 for the semi final showdown against Chelsea (0-0).

Odd start

Media changes

Barça will be unveiling a number of new media elements for Tuesday night’s match. Interviews in the Mixed Zone will be much more comfortable now that the space has been redistributed, meaning more reporters will be able to get close to the protagonists.

And press conferences will run more smoothly now that each comment made by the managers will not be followed by a translation, as has been the method until now. Instead, all of the replies will be translated simultaneously, which will make the whole process faster.

For the game with Dynamo Kiev at the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona members will only be able to enter the stadium if they have a season ticket for this season, i.e. 2009/10.
