FC Barcelona: Buy the entrance now without tails

A poster at the Camp Nou footy museum reminds the public that neither evening dress nor cloven hooves are required for entry in their earthy Paradise:


This gem arrives via CFM, who used to blog about language here and here, and who wonders about the real state of Barça's finances if they can't afford 50€ for a translator. Any beers purchased via the donate button (sidebar) will go to him for forwarding to the photographer.

This is not the first time that Barça have screwed up a simple translation ... as I mention here

This one is so cute.

But why do they call it "Nou Camp"? Fucking up even (the holiest of) their own language?

PS: On top it says "Camp nou". One capital letter gone awol.

PS2: Oh... does entrance also refer to the ticket you buy the right for it with?

Took me a few minutes. But then I am not a €50 a throw translator. ;-)

Well they could have written "without glue".

Guys, this is not an official poster at club facilities, but a fake from some amateur touroperator or whatever.

We all know what is a tail.

No question about "Camp Nou", this is the real popular name.
