VIDEO: Irishman secures entry to Barca match at Nou Camp with ridiculously-oversized match ticket
Have you ever seen the likes of it?
JOE reader Conor Steen and his friend Jesper (pictured with another friend, Laia, below) were in in Barcelona at the weekend and decided to take in Barcelona’s clash with Sporting Gijon at the Nou Camp.
It was a good idea too because Barca were rampant, putting six unanswered goals past the overwhelmed visitors.
After Conor and Jesper had attended Ireland’s friendly victory over Switzerland on Good Friday, Jesper had complained about the size of printed out A4 match tickets, claiming that they were difficult to read.
Taking this advice on board, Conor was in charge of printing out the match tickets for the Barcelona game on Saturday and decided that he wasn’t going to give Jesper a reason to complain this time around.
So he printed out a positively huge ticket instead which Jesper used to gain entry to the Nou Camp, much to the amusement of the gate attendant.
An A1 experience all round.
