Barcelona's football club - FC Barcelona or simply "El Barça" - is not only out of this world, but quite possibly the best soccer team in the world. Over the years they have steadily added to their trophy case, having won tournaments as well as the Spanish league numerous times.
If you're even remotely a football fan, you shouldn't miss the chance to see a game live a Camp Nou, the team's home stadium. With a 100,000 spectator capacity and amazing three level tiers, it provides fans and visitors alike an unforgettable experience.
It wouldn't be fair to leave out the fact that Barcelona has another football team: Espanyol de Barcelona. Though not as renowned or successful as FC Barcelona, they're still in Division I and participate in the European Champions League. Depending on the year, they can dish out a threat on the field. The Espanyol plays at the Olympic stadium in Montjüic.
The FC Barcelona Football Museum (Museu del Futbol Club Barcelona), held within the Camp Nou complex, is one of Barcelona's most visited attractions. It provides a comprehensive history of the team and a great look at Spain's national sport. You can enter via Camp Nou's Gate 14.
