Camp Nou to host UEFA Women's Champions League clash with Real Madrid
Quarter final on March 30 will be the first ever competitive women's fixture with fans in the stadium
FC Barcelona today, Monday, has notified UEFA that the first leg of the Women's Champions League quarter final against Real Madrid will take place at Camp Nou on 30 March at 6.45pm CEST.
It will be the second time that Barça Women, current European Champions and treble winners last season, play in the famous stadium since becoming professional. The first time that Barça Women played a competitive fixture at Camp Nou was for the league game with RCD Espanyol on 6 January 2021. The 5-0 win commemorated half a century since a Barcelona Women’s XI first played a game in the stadium. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, no supporters were able to attend.
The club has made this decision in recognition of the exceptional achievements of its women’s team in the last year, winning the league and cup double as well as their first ever Champions League.
FC Barcelona will do all it can to ensure that the largest possible crowd is in the stadium to support the team in such a high-profile fixture whilst at the same time following all the protocols and regulations set out by the health authorities.
Impeccable Champions League
The side coached by Jonatan Giráldez have qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League after winning all six of their games in the group stage. As fate would have it, they have been drawn against Real Madrid, who finished second in their group, in the quarter finals of the competition.
