Barcelona History

FC Barcelona - Foundation

Futbol Club Barcelona was founded in 1899 by a group of footballers from Switzerland,England and Spain led by Joan Gamper. The club was based in Catalonia, Spain and until 1910 participated only in regional competitions. Thereafter Barcelona started participating in various European competitions and the remarkable red and blue colours were first worn by the blaugranas in a match against Hispania in 1900.

FC Barcelona - First Trophy

FC Barcelona soon raised to prominence winning their first trophy, the Copa Macaya, in 1902.

Barca also competed in their first ever Copa Del Reyfinal which they eventually lost to Bizcaya(2-1), but that was just the start as they went on a manoeuvring run by winning the competition a total of 8 times by 1928.

FC Barcelona - First La Liga Winners

In 1928, along with the help of various other clubs, Barcelona co-founded the La-liga and also won the inaugural edition of the Tournament. Joan Gamper’s time at Barcelona came to an abrupt end as he was deported from Spain amongst political conflicts in the country soon after which he committed suicide.

FC Barcelona - Early Dominance

In the period from 1942 to 1957, FC Barcelona claimed five La Ligatitles and five Copa del Rey trophies and shortly after this Barca made a move to the newly built Camp Nou. There blaugrana were under the management of Helenio Herera and went on to win two consecutive La-Liga’s and a Copa Del Rey in the next 3 years.

Barcelona made history as they became the first club to defeat Real Madrid in the European Cup however, the 60’s were highly disappointing for the blaugranas as they had to settle for just 2 Copa Del Rey trophies for the entire decade. In 1973 Johan Cruyff joined FC Barcelona and everything changed as they won their first La-liga title in 10 years.
