Great memories for Barça Women at Spotify Camp Nou

Great memories for Barça Women at Spotify Camp Nou

Jonatan Giráldez's team return to the stadium on Thursday to face Bayern Munich

Barça Women face Bayern Munich on match day 3 in the Champions League on Thursday 24 November. The game sees Jonatan Giráldez's team return to Spotify Camp Nou after their record breaking visits last season. 

It will the third time that a Women's Champions League game has been played at the Barça stadium with a fourth to come on 21 December in the final game of the group stages against Norwegian side Rosengard. 

To celebrate Barça Women's return to Spotify Camp Nou we look back at some of the best moments from their past at the stadium: 

The Pioneers 

The first time that the women's team played an official game was more than 50 years ago, on 25 December 1970. On Christmas Day a Barça women's team coached by Antoni Ramallets, legendary club goalkeeper, faced Unió Esportiva Centelles. The contest ended 0-0 but it was a day that the gates opened for the women's team for the first time at the Barça stadium with more than 60,000 fans turning up. 

At the time the women's team were not able to even wear the Club's colours or use the name as they were not even officially part of the Club. 

50 years on 

Half a century later the Barça Women's team once again stepped out on to the field at Spotify Camp Nou in a league game against Espanyol. It came on 6 January 2021 in a derby game, the first since the team became professional and a team coached by Lluís Cortés celebrated the occasion with a 5-0 victory. 

Champions League Clásico 

After a game without fans, the next visit to Spotify Camp Nou could not have been more different. The opponents were Real Madrid in the Champions League in a quarter final tie that saw a world record of attendance of 91,553 fill the stadium in March 2022. 

Barça ran out 5-2 winners that day to run out 8-3 winners on aggregate after a 3-1 win in Madrid in the first leg. 

Another record 

The record against Real Madrid lasted until the next round when 91,648 fans crammed into Spotify Camp Nou to see the semi-final against Wolfsburg. Once again the blaugranes were dominant as they took a 5-1 win to book their place in the final in Turin, Italy against Olympique Lyonnais.
