About FC Barcelona


FC Barcelona was established in 1899 by a group of ex-pats living in Barcelona in response to the massive increase in popularity of football across Europe. 


Barca's founder, Joan Gamper, in his roles as player, director and president, was the inspiration and driving force behind Barca's early years. When the club was on the precipice of going out of existence in November 1908, Gamper became president of the organisation for the first time and was determined to keep the fledgling club afloat.

Gamper sought to build a solid foundation by steadily increasing the club's membership, rewriting the club statutes, and purchasing their own football grounds. Their cause was also aided by the massive popularity of football which turned it into a professional sport.

From 201 members in 1909, membership grew to 2,973 in under a decade and those efforts were rewarded when Barca were crowned La Liga champions in the competition's inaugural season in 1928/29. 

The end of season table was a sign of things to come as Barcelona finished the four and half month campaign with twenty-five points, two more than Real Madrid, who finished runners up.

Surprisingly, their triumph was not met with the enthusiasm such a success would generate in the modern era as the league was considered secondary to the Copa de Espana, which Barca had won in 1928.

The 1930s were a period of political instability and crisis in Spain in general and at the club. The turbulent decade witnessed the death of the club's founder, the Second Spanish Republic, the Spanish Civil War and the assassination of its president, Josep Suñol. 

Barcelona did not win any league titles or Spanish Cups during that period as football often took a back seat to political issues and the Catalans had to wait until the 40s to re-emerge as a force in the football world against the odds.

César Rodríguez and Mariano Martín were two players who made a massive contribution to their resurgence as they claimed three La Liga titles (1944, 1948 & 1949). Rodríguez played 433 official matches for the club and scored a phenomenal 294 goals.

Another milestone for the club was the construction of their world famous home, the Camp Nou, which began in 1954 and was completed just three years later. The stadium had an initial capacity of 93,053 spectators and cost 288,088,143 pesetas to build.

Barça began the 1950s with a sensational line-up that went on to win five different trophies in the 1951/52 season. The League, the Spanish Cup, the Latin Cup, the Copa Eva Duarte and the Copa Martini Rossi earned that famous side the moniker 'The Five Cup Team'.

The 1960s saw a massive upsurge in membership although that didn't bring about success on the pitch with just one league title in 1959/60 season. Real Madrid dominated that decade with eight championship wins.

It wasn't until the arrival of Johann Cryuff in 1973 that glory days were brought back to the Camp Nou as Barca won the 1973/74 title, although that was their sole La Liga success of the 70s. Barça won the European Cup Winners’ Cup for the first time ever in 1979 however.

During the 1980s, Barca continued to alternate between highs and lows, winning the championship in 1984/85 under Terry Venables and seeing the arrival of world stars such as Quini, Maradona, Schuster, Alexanco, Julio Alberto, Urruti and Marcos, but failing to get the best out Diego Maradona due to injury and off-field issues.

It wasn't until the 1990s and after Johann Cruyff had been appointed manager in 1988 that the club reached new heights. Four titles in a row from 1991 to 1994 and the club's first European club success at Wembley in 1992 will long live in the memory. Barca won two more La Liga titles in 1998 and 1999.

Seven more titles followed their centenary success, as well as four UEFA Champions League triumphs (2006, 2009, 2011, 2015), for one of the truly great clubs in football, who more often than not, do justice to its label as 'the beautiful game'.

The Catalans may still trail Real Madrid in terms of La Liga wins, but they are the most successful club in the history of the Copa del Rey, having won Spain's prestigious cup competition 29 times.
