FC Barcelona History

Barcelona – Background

FC Barcelona, one the most successful and best-loved football clubs in the world, was founded in 1899 in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain; to this day, Barcelona remains a significant part of Catalan identity. The club was formed by a group of Catalan, English and Swiss footballers headed by Joan Gamper, who was player, director and manager in the first 25 years of the club. The team showed success in its first years as it competed in regional and national cup games: From 1910 to 1913, the team won the prestigious Pyrenees Cup four consecutive times. After an amazing achieving in 1928 – winning the Spanish Cup – the club steadily declined for the next few years: Gamper's suicide, the assassination of club president Josep Sunyol, as well as the Spanish Civil War and the occupation of Catalonia in the 1930s marked a difficult time for the team, which failed to succeed nationally and abroad in those years. Things started to pick up for the team in the 1940s and 1950s, as it won the Copa del Generalissimo in 1943; the La Liga in 1945; and 5 different national trophies in 1952. However, the next two decades marked another period of decline. In 1978 Josep Lluís Núñez was elected as club president in 1978, and his goal was to turn Barcelona into a world-class club. In 1979 the team won its first ever Cup Winners Cup; and also won the La Liga and the Copa del Rey in the following years. The nineties marked another turning point for the team with new manager (and best manager to date) Johan Cruyff. The players he assembled together took Barcelona to new heights – with wins in the UEFA Cup, the European Super Cup, the European Cup, and the Supercopa de España throughout that decade. Unfortunately, the early 2000s marked yet another decline in the team's achievement, with a frequent changing of managers and general instability. But once again, like a rising phoenix, the club bounced back in the 2004-05 season winning both La Liga and the Supercopa de España. The following years were marked by the entrance of star players such as Ronaldinho and Messi, and Gurdiola as manager, who led the team to a string of victories in the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup in the last ten years. The 2015-16 season was hugely successful for the team, as it won the FIFA Club World Cup for the 3rd time, La Liga for the 24th time, the Copa del Rey for the 28th time, the Suprcopa de España for the 12th time, and the UEFA Super Cup for the 5th time.

Barcelona's Most Successful Period

So far it seems that Barcelona has been experiencing its most successful period in the past two decades: the club won two trebles (La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League) in the years 2008-09 and 2014-15, several doubles (La Liga and the European Cup, or La Liga and Copa del Rey) in the 1990s and 2000s, and of course the FIFA Club World Cup in 2009, 2011 and 2015.
