From the start of the 2022/23 season, all tickets for the senior men's team's games must bear the name of the person who will be attending
Since the start of the 2022/23 season and in order to combat fraud and touting, FC Barcelona has deemed that all men's football matches, both at Spotify Camp Nou and on the road, must carry the full names of the people who will be attending the match.
Games at Spotify Camp Nou
All club members, supporters clubs and fans wishing to attend a game at Spotify Camp Nou must report who intends to attend the game. After purchasing tickets, the main buyer will be emailed a link where they must provide the details of each person attending. FC Barcelona will not issue any tickets until this is done and will refuse entry to the stadium. The data can be provided up until the start of the match.
If using smartbooking to purchase tickets, the names can be changed until the tickets are confirmed, but after that no further changes may be made. If selecting seats, these details need to be entered before payment and hence cannot be modified afterwards.
Children's tickets too
FC Barcelona has for several seasons been issuing a limited number of tickets to children up to age 14 for certain games. From now on, penyas will also have to fill in form declaring the names of children that are coming to games. Once the Penyas Department has confirmed the tickets, a form will be made available on which to supply this information.
And away trips
Supporters clubs have had to provide details of attendees of away games since the 2016/17 season. The difference this season is that tickets will also bear the holder's name at other grounds, both for European and domestic fixtures. Thus any of Barça's opponents will be able to ask visiting fans to prove their identity before being admitted into the ground. Fans who are unable to accredit their identity will be refused entrance
