    I'm not going, but I'd imagine Placa Catalunya will be popular, right at the top of La Rambla (pubs galore), also Metro station is here which links directly for the line to the stadium. Watch out for pick-pockets around La Rambla though, absolutely everywhere and I'd imagine anyone wearing Celtic colours would be a prime target (i.e a drunk tourist with cash and valuable on them)

    If it's still warm Barceloneta would be good during the afternoon, few Irish bars amongst others and right on the beach.

    Also up near Camp Nou theres some decent wee bars littered around the alley-ways, and the area around the stadium in general is huge, last time I was there loads were consuming cans up there.

    Have seen clips on you tube of celtic fans in placa catulunya and also another place that had band/music outdoor. I had asked a while back did anyone know if the council put on music or somewhere to go. I would imagine they would want to keep the crowd (6-8k) together. cant wait now. id saythere will be a few pints regardless of were we end up

    thanks for that seosamh, i intend to head to the ground around 6.30/7.00, rather be early than late, especially with 90,000 making there way to the ground, imagine it will be chaos,

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Alex. Long time supporter, first time posting in "Talk Celtic". Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this. I'm a Celtic supporter from Serbia and I'm coming over to Barcelona for the match. Been trying to get tickets from their official website but I ran into some credit card issues there. I think I'll phone them tomorrow. Even though I would love to see the match, hanging out with you guys would be just as great.

    About the meeting point ....last time we played them the meeting point was at Placa d'Espagna. From there on it's also easy to get to the stadium.

    We'll surely hear more about when we approaching the date.
