Camp Narcís Sala
C Santa Coloma, 39
Sant Andreu’s residents are proud of Narcís Sala, the municipal stadium that plays host to Unió Esportiva Sant Andreu’s matches. Officially opened in 1970 and with seating for over 6,000 spectators, the ground holds exciting matches every Sunday, in addition to concerts, meetings and celebrations. Its pitch has had artificial grass since 2005.
Football that came from Scotland
It was a colony of Scottish workers that had come over here to work in the prosperous Sant Andreu textile industry who introduced football to Barcelona. In 1899 a group of these workers founded the
Football Club San Andrés, which combined with the neighbourhood’s other associations over the years, changing its name various times, until it became Unió Esportiva Sant Andreu. The club has continued to grow ever since and now has two pitches (Narcís Sala and Camp del Centenari), a football school with over 600 children and 43 youth and junior teams.
A rock spirit
Besides hosting matches for the last 45 years, Narcís Sala is also famous for the historic concerts it has held, especially during the last two decades of the 20th century, featuring artists such as Mike Oldfield, Roxy Music, The Police, Dire Straits, King Crimson, Scorpions and Deep Purple.
