Barcelona FC Update
One of the most powerful teams competing in the 2016 ICC is wealthy Spanish La Liga club FC Barcelona.
FC Barcelona was founded in 1899 with a deeply-rooted allegiance to Barcelona and Catalonia by Joan Gamper. FC Barcelona was put to the test by the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent victory for the Nationalist forces threatened the Club’s existence In the 1950’s.
Barcelona left their old ground Les Corts for Camp Nou in September of 1950.
With the arrival of Dutchman Johan Cruyff in 1974 the Blaugranes regained their place with the elite of European Football. In 1979 Barça won the European Cup Winners’ Cup for the first time, and three years later they repeated the feat. Their first European Cup came in 1992 with a victory over Sampdoria in the final that was played at Wembley Stadium in London. Johan Cruyff had returned to the club, this time as coach, and his assembled side, known as the ‘Dream Team’, also claimed yet another Cup Winners’ Cup and four consecutive league titles. The late 1990s brought more trophies in the form of another Cup Winners’ Cup and two consecutive league titles under Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal. The turn of the century brought changes at the club and stability was returned with the arrival of another Dutchman as coach, Frank Rijkaard. The former AC Milan player led the team to their second European Cup, now known as the Champions League, as well as two more league titles.
Success under Frank Rijkaard was the springboard for a period of unparalleled excellent under the Dutchman’s successor, Josep Guardiola. In 2009 the Club performed the extraordinary feat of winning all six major trophies they were competing for. Between 2008 and 2012 the football first team won amongst other things two more Champions League trophies, three league titles and a much awaited first World Club Cup title. Silverware came not just in football but also in the other sports at the Club such as basketball, handball, and roller hockey.
