For the fourth year in a row, FC Barcelona has designated one game in which season tickets holders can give up their seats in the Camp Nou and instead allow them to be used by underprivileged groups that otherwise may never get the chance to see Barça in action in the stadium. It’s what’s known as the Members Solidarity Day, a day when members are encouraged to forfeit their seats and instead make a dream come true for people in need of a bit of happiness in their lives.

As in previous years, the chosen match is the round of 32 game in the Spanish Cup, which this year sees Barça entertain Huesca on December 16 at 8.00 PM CET.

The Club  will be doing everything it can to make it easy for season ticket holders to free their seats, which can be done on the official website at, by phoning 902 1899 00, or by coming in person to the Barcelona Supporter Services Office (OAB). Season ticket holders that do not plan to come to the game, or who would simply like to make a charitable gesture, can free their seats using the Seient Lliure system in the usual manner.
