A few days after Barcelona's debut in the 2021-22 Champions League, against Bayern Munich, the Barça fan has shown little interest in attending the Camp Nou to watch the game live. The Generalitat of Catalonia has allowed the entry of up to 40 thousand people.
However, the requests of the partners, which were closed last Thursday, did not cover the quota of tickets for sale. According to the newspaper ‘Marca’ there were only 31,213 applications for admission, a situation that has begun to seriously worry the board of the Barcelona club.
When Barcelona was getting ready to activate the ticket raffle mechanism for the first time in the Champions League, the fans have surprised with their little interest in entering the Camp Nou to see the 'Culés' against Bayern, the rival they have an outstanding debt after 8-2 in Lisbon in 2020.
With only 31,213 requests from members, Barcelona has not seen the need to make any draw. The rest of the tickets, more than eight thousand, have remained at the box office for the purchase of the general public. They can already be purchased from the club's official website.
The little commitment of the Barcelona partner to the club could have its origin in the departure of great players in the market last summer. Without a doubt, Messi's departure is beginning to be reflected in the stands. To this we must add that Koeman's team does not finish convincing.
The lack of interest of the Barça partner has already been seen in this Santander League. In the game against Getafe, Barcelona could sell up to 20,000 tickets, but only registered 19,136 subscriber requests. At that time it was not necessary to do a draw either.
