Buying tickets for Espanyol matches is not as complicated a task as for other football teams. However, it should be done ahead of time because there are not a lot of tickets on sale. If you are a member of RCD Espanyol you can buy up to two tickets per game with a 10% discount. The maximum number of tickets that can be purchased per person (member or non-member) is 10.
Ticket prices for matches played by Espanyol in the Cornellà-El Prat stadium vary depending on the rival. Matches are divided into 5 different categories. The highest price is for games where the opponent is Real Madrid (category AA). Then there are matches where the rival is FC Barcelona (A) and then the other teams: categories B, C and D. The lowest prices are for games listed as D. If you enter the club’s website you will see prices for all matches (prices can be modified up to 5 weeks before the match and the exact time and date is not confirmed until around 10 days before the game).
The prices you get to see on Espanyol’s official website are standard rates but there are also reduced rates for children and pensioners. In case of children under 5, they can enter the stadium for free but they will not have an individual seat.
The amount of tickets available to buy for every match is not very large but the new system of ‘Seient Obert’ (Open Seat) means that the amount of available seats is increasing: members who can not go to the stadium for a match give up their seat to the club who puts it on sale for that game.
If you buy tickets for pairs or groups of less than 10 people your providers will try to seat all of you together but this is not guaranteed as it depends on availability. If you go to Espanyol’s stadium as a visiting fan you will have to sit in the area reserved for visiting fans.
Espanyol tickets can be bought using the following distribution channels:
• through the Internet, using the official Espanyol website. It sells tickets 24 hours a day. Tickets go on sale about a month and a half before the game.
• by phone, calling 932 927 700 (from Spain) or +34 932 927 700 (from outside Spain)
• through Servicaixa’s website or buying tickets in person at the terminals of La Caixa (only from Spain).
• through ‘Oficines de Turisme’ (in Catalonia). One of the ‘Oficines de Turisme’ is in Plaça Catalunya, right in the centre of Barcelona.
