Barcelona price hike results in most expensive Clasico tickets ever

Blaugrana supporters will have to cough up €298 if they wish to attend the Liga clash with Real Madrid at Camp Nou on October 7, an increase of €33 on last season
Barcelona have implemented a ticket price hike that will result in the most expensive Clasico seats in history.

The Blaugrana have decided to increase the cost of entry at Camp Nou, with seats in the grandstands and 'lateral' areas along the side of the pitch rising by 12.5 per cent, while the cost of a ticket behind the goal has increased by 18%.

Consequently, the best seats in the house for the October 7 Liga meeting with Real Madrid will be priced at €298, compared to €265 last term.

However, should club members purchase two tickets for the game, they will at least receive a 5% discount on one.

Tickets for all of the Catalans' home games for the 2012-13 Liga season officially went on sale on Thursday morning.
