Barcelona’s Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys and Palau Sant Jordi arena have become the first venue members of Face-value European Alliance for Ticketing (FEAT), an organisation working to encourage face-value ticket resale. 

The venues join FC Barcelona, which became the first sports club to partner with FEAT in January. Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys is currently serving as Barcelona’s temporary home, whilst Spotify Camp Nou is being redeveloped as part of the Espai Barça project.

Estadi Olímpic is one of the biggest stadiums in Spain, with a capacity of 55,000, and also regularly hosts major concerts. Over the last few years, the stadium has provided the stage for the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Rammstein, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Palau Sant Jordi is the largest indoor arena by capacity in Spain, at roughly 18,500. It also boasts a 4,500-capacity club at the back of the building.

Both Estadi Olímpic and Palau Sant Jordi form part of the Anella Olímpica (Olympic Ring) in Barcelona, which held the Games in 1992. The venues are owned by Barcelona de Serveis Municipals, one of the main service companies in the Spanish city.
