FC Barcelona

Today I would like to tell you about one of the most famous football teams – FC Barcelona.

FC Barcelona was founded 29 November 1899 by Hans Gamper.


It was the first club in the city where football was not very well-known sport. FC Barcelona immediately became a symbol of Catalonia and its people who believe the current day that will have " freedom " . The first unofficial match took place against the British , who won 1-0 . A year later, was the first derby Barcelona - Espanyol ended in a goalless draw . In the same year, the first time Barça wins Cup of Catalonia. Two years later , in Madrid was a football club - Real. As it turns out , it will be the greatest enemy of FC Barcelona. In the same year , just from this team , Barca played a match against the Spanish Cup and won 3-1 . In addition to gaining a second cup of Catalonia. The same stunt players from eastern Spain, repeated in 1905 , beating Espanyol . Three years later , his football career ended Hans Gamper . That did not mean , however, that said goodbye to the club. On the contrary - was the president. Year (two) before he could even get your club Sabadell two Cups and Cup Salut (1906 and 1908).

In 1909 he was fifth in the history of Barcelona's stadium - The Carrer Industria Ground. This time it was owned by the club. Previous four: Former Bananova Velodrome, The Hotel Casanovas Ground, The Carretera D'Horta Ground, The Carrer Muntander Ground, Barcelona had to share with the local enemy - Espanyol.

The most important victory was, and yes, I think that in 1950, when Barca beat Real 7-2. In 1953, held the first democratic election of President of the club, which won Francesc Miro-Sans. In 1957, the stadium was opened called El Nou Estadi del Futbol Club Barcelona, ​​which we all know under the name of the Camp Nou.
