Low fans turn up for Barcelona’s first home match ticket after Messi’s exit to PSG

Following sensational exit of Lionel Messi to PSG, Barcelona fans are already in disinterested from the   season’s onset which only 15,820 fans applied for ticket Sunday’s first home game of the LaLiga season against Real Sociedad, which is about half of the 30,000 seats made available.

The low demand of tickets by fans despite first chance to return to the Nou Camp in 17 months due to the coronavirus pandemic accounts for the facts that fans are not yet ready for the new era without the club’s all-time top scorer and most decorated player.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, only 15,820 of the club’s 83,500 season ticket holders applied for a ticket for the game against Real Sociedad, meaning the club will not have to hold a ballot to determine who gets a ticket as they first thought.

Barca’s last competitive game in front of fans was also against Real Sociedad, on March 7, 2020, when Messi scored a late penalty in a 1-0 win.
