More about FC Barcelona

Club info

Origins

FC Barcelona was founded in 29 November 1899 by the Swiss Hans Kamper. As a 22-year-old he was actually on his way to Africa where his plan was to help his uncle set up a trading company in sugar. However, he ended up staying in Barcelona. He loved football and started, together with some English and Swiss supporters, the “Barcelona Football Club” following his advert in the sports magazine Los Deportes.

Kamper, who later changed his name to Joan Gamper, chose blue and purple as the club colours and appointed himself as the first captain of the team. He played 48 games between 1899 and 1903, in which he scored more than 100 goals. Thereafter he was president for many years and the driving force behind the continued growth and development of the club. He was less fortunate in his private life. Plagued by personal and financial problems, he committed suicide on July 30, 1930. As a tribute to the founder of the club, FC Barcelona still plays the annual opening game of the season for the Joan Gamper Trophy.

More Than Football, More Than a Club
FC Barcelona is best known for the quality of its football, but Barça is more than just a football club. FC Barcelona is an all-sport club with professional, international top teams in basketball, handball, futsal (5-a-side) and field roller hockey. These are all very popular sports in Spain. Furthermore, the club still has sections for amateur wheelchair basketball, athletics, rugby, baseball, volleyball, hockey, ice hockey and figure skating.

Besides the Nou Camp stadium, the club posses the adjacent Miniestadi, a stadium with a capacity of 15,000 spectators, where Barça B, Barça C, and sometimes the Barça youth team play their games. The basketball, handball and indoor football teams play their games in their own stadium, the Palau Blaugrana, which is located near the Nou Camp and has a capacity of over 7,000 spectators. Besides this, there is also a skating track on the Barça complex.

The slogan ‘més que un club’ - more than a club - indicates that it goes further than being just a sports club. The slogan shows that FC Barcelona stands as a deeply rooted symbol of Catalan independence and supports socio-political themes such as education, art and culture. FC Barcelona is, both in Catalonia and abroad, very active in social and humanitarian development.

The Logo Explained
The logo of FC Barcelona as we know it today was designed by Carles Coma Mala in 1910. He was a player for the club between 1903 and 1912, and also a medical student and gifted artist. He won a competition organized by the club to design a new club logo.

Barcelona Logo
The logo was designed by Carles Comamala.

Since then, the ‘escudo’ has often been redesigned (most recently in 2002), but its core has not changed. The shape is still that of an "olla", a traditional Catalan food pot. The red cross on the white space on the upper left section is the Cross of Saint Jordi, the patron saint of Catalonia.

The section with the red-yellow strokes symbolizes the ‘senyera’, the traditional flag of Barcelona and Catalonia. The letters F.C.B. below are, of course, the initials of the club. The football in the lower section stands for the main sport in Barcelona, set on a background of blue and purple, the team colors.

Stadium Tour & Museum
The Stadium Tour is called the “Nou Camp Experience” by the club, and they are right as it includes a visit to the Barça Museum which is quite an experience. The museum is the most visited museum in the country! From the players’ dressing rooms to the press room, the VIP box, the thrilling player tunnel and the pitch, no part of the behind-the-scenes space remains a secret.

The museum is not just a collection of great prizes, with its 111-year history on display, but there are also several notable personal relics of players and coaches who were once active for the club. Tickets for the stadium and museum tour can easily be added online when booking your trip to FC Barcelona football on our website.

What Does “Cule” Mean?
Barça fans in Spain are generally referred to as “Cules”. It literally means “ass” or “butt”. This originates far back in the long history of the club. Between 1909 and 1922, FC Barcelona played its home matches in the L'Escopidora stadium.

Supporters who could not afford the ticket would often climb and sit on the walls that surrounded the pitch, to make sure they could see the game. Only their backsides were visible to passers-by outside the stadium, who gave them the nickname “Cules”.

Nou Camp
The Nou Camp - literally meaning "new field" - was opened on September 24, 1957 with a match between FC Barcelona and Legia Warsaw (4-2). The stadium has a capacity of 99,354 spectators and is 48 metres high; the field has a dimension of 105 x 68 metres. The Museum of FC Barcelona and the shop are located in the same complex. Besides football matches, pop concerts are also regularly held in the Nou Camp and on November 17, 1982 Pope John Paul II held a Mass in the stadium for 120,000 people.

Total Football
Dutch coach Rinus Michels introduced the so-called ‘total football’ style of play at Barcelona. A few years later the Dutch national team would, under the supervision of Michels, conquer the world with this distinctive style. It is extraordinary to see that this style of play is still fundamental to the way Barcelona plays today.

Canto del Barça (hymn)
For every home game the Barcelona fans passionately sing the anthem. This is always a very impressive moment. Memorise the words so that you can join almost 100,000 other fans singing "El Canto”!

Tot el camp, és un clam, (The entire field is a clamour)
som la gent blaugrana, (we are the Blaugrana people)
tant se val d'on venim, (no matter where we come from)
si del sud o del nord, (be it south or north)
ara estem d'acord, estem d'acord, (now we all agree, we all agree)
una bandera ens agermana. (a flag unites us in brotherhood) Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)
Jugadors, seguidors, (Players, supporters)
tots units fem força. (all together we are strong)
Són molts anys plens d'afanys, (Many years full of zeal)
són molts gols que hem cridat, (many goals we have screamed)
i s'ha demostrat, s'ha demostrat, (and it's proven, it's proven)
que mai ningú no ens podrà tòrcer. (no-one will ever beat us)
Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)

Experiences from our customers

Mr. Brown, 3 travellers 15 April 2018
FC Barcelona - Valencia CF

it was for my 70th birthday. I went with my Son and Son in law. the complete packaging was fantastic. I would like to thank Rebecca for the way she organised everything for us, including new flights when Monarch airlines went bust. The hotel was great, the Zenit Borrell is about 20 minutes walk from the stadium, and 20 minutes walk into the centre of Barcelona, or you can use public transport. the atmosphere in the ground was electric, just sit back and take it in. make sure you take loads of photos, and video some of the singing. The match was great Barca v Valencia. 2-1 Barca. we did the stadium and museum tour the next day, which was really good, you get to go behind the scenes and see everything, including all the cups they have won, shirts, even the changing rooms, well worth the price. If you're a football fan just do it. This IS the company to book with, I can't praise them enough for the way everything was done, and the way they looked after us.

 

Tip!

 

most of the stadium is open, so if it rains (it did for us a bit) then you will get wet. try and book a seat under the roof, it's at the players entrance side of the stadium. it works both ways I guess, if it's very hot, you will be in the shade, and stay cool

A. Day, 2 persons 18 March 2018
FC Barcelona - Athletic Bilbao

What a great service, hotel was very good and was within walking distance of the stadium and town. Tickets were at the hotel on check in. The seats were amazing, and got a great view of the magic man. Something that will stay with my forever. Thank You for fulfilling a dream

Tip!

Great tapas bars away from Las Ramblas. Camp Nou is a booze free stadium. Bars around the ground serve beer.

H. Jenkins, 2 persons 18 March 2018

All great start to finish

A. Terry, 1 peroson 4 March 2018
FC Barcelona - Atlético Madrid

The package was well worth it, I had a unforgettable time. I was seated above the ultras who didnt stop singing. Was a fantastic atmosphere. It was so easy to get to, I got the metro and my hotel was like 5 mins walk away from the camp nou which made it even more easier. The service i got from football break was fantastic they made my dreams come true and I would use them again without any hesitation.

Tip: Don't think about it and just go out and do it. The food was lovely, the people and the football ground was worth the tour and match.

Anonym 4 March 2018
FC Barcelona - Atlético Madrid

An absolutely superb package put together by football break, I couldn’t fault it in any way. The flights were smooth, the hotel was brilliant and only a 5 min walk to the camp Nou. Match day was an experience we will never forget! Thanks football break for an unbelievable experience, would definitely recommend to any football fan, we are planning the next trip!! ??

D. Benson, 3 persons 24 February 2018
FC Barcelona - Girona FC

I went to Barcelona with my two adult sons, primarily to see Messi. Great trip, great city, great game (6-1) anda truly great player

 Tip: Go for the slightly more expensive seats - worth every Euro!
R. Dallas, 2 persons 11 February 2018
FC Barcelona - Getafe CF

Easy to book, excellent and professional service topped off with a wonderful trip to watch Barcelona play

Tip: Get a hotel close to a Metro station

T. Cowlin, 4 persons 7 January 2018
FC Barcelona - Levante UD

The price of our trip was reasonable and included The Hotel, Breakfast, Flights and Football tickets. It was amazing to watch my son so excited to see some of his favourite players wright in front of him. The package was very self explanatory and detailed everything you needed, even what Metro or bus was nearest to you. I would say that apart from the Football stadium, Football tour and maybe the Olympic stadium in Barcelona, there is not much that children will want to see.

Tip: If your planning to book the football tour, then make sure its NOT on a match day as they don't let you in to see the changing rooms or down the tunnel

L. Murphy, 2 persons 7 January 2018
FC Barcelona - Levante UD

Had the most amazing trip which exceeded my expectations. The hotel was lovely H10 Itaca which was walking distance to the stadium. The whole trip ran extremely smoothly with all information and tickets sent beforehand. I would highly recommend football breaks for convenience, time saving, hassle free and efficiency.

A. Fox, 4 persons 17 December 2017
FC Barcelona - Deportivo de La Coruña

Would have preferred less restrictive view. Everything else ok

E. Price, 4 persons 17 December 2017
FC Barcelona - Deportivo de La Coruña

I can’t praise Football Breaks enough. Everything ran so smoothly: booking was easy and the staff at the office were very helpful. The information received was very full and helpful and all the directions were clear. The hotel was really comfortable and convenient for the Stadium and also Barcelona centre. The whole Barca experience fabulous. I would recommend the company to family and friends and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again for another trip.

Tip: Make sure you have a return metro ticket ahead of the game as getting out is hectic! Buy the ticket with 10 trips so that you can see the sights of Barcelona easily. We did a hop on hop off bus tour which was great.

N. Saleem, 1 person 17 December 2017
FC Barcelona - Deportivo de La Coruña

I went to Barcelona to watch Barca v Deportivo. It was an amazing experience. The price of the whole package was great, Getting from The UK to Barcelona was straightforward. The hotel was good not great, but I wasn’t bothered as I spent so much time outdoors. The game was amazing (Barca won 4-0). The atmosphere was incredible. I did the Stadium and museum tour which was incredible.The city of Barcelona is breathtaking, So much to do, So Little time. If you’re planning to go try to go for at least a week if possible, not just three days like me . The service from football break was great (got free seat upgrade).I’m already planning my next trip.

Tip: Book as long as you can Barcelona has so much to offer.

T. Pickett, 3 persons 5 December 2017
FC Barcelona - Sporting CP (CL)

Hotel was brilliant, great location. Everything was so well organised.

Tip: Must do the museum tour, try to book in same day as the game

Anonymous, 3 persons 21 October 2017
FC Barcelona - Málaga CF

We had an excellent trip to Barcelona and watched the Malaga game . It was really easy to get around and the hotel was fantastic . Everything ran really smoothly . An excellent break

Tip: Buy a 2 day metro card

J. Hercock, 3 persons 13 August 2017
FC Barcelona - Real Madrid

Returned last Monday from our Barcelona football match which was a treat also for our 17yr old Grandson. We had the most fantastic time and everything went without problems. We worried as airport were staging a 24hr strike and we didnt know what to expect. Phoned your emergency office the day before and lady was very helpful and was going to be in contact if the strike was on. Thankfully the Spanish Civil Guard took over airport and checked passports. All was well. We also contacted Norwegian airways and they were very helpful too. Thank you for help to make a dream come true for Grandson.

Tip: I had read beforehand of problems with pickpockets etc and was rather worried, but pleased to say everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were told there would be plenty of taxis after the match at stadium and we couldnt book in advance from hotel. We found all cabs were already taken and so walked from stadium to Onix Fera Hotel by Arenas which took 1hr.15mins. It was like a party it is the main road and hundreds of other families were doing same. No problems at all.Fantastic city and we will return.

R. Brown, 3 persons 6 May 2017
FC Barcelona - Villareal

Been to Barcelona before and organised the trip myself which was stressful with tickets etc. Booking with football break took away all the stress and made it a fantastic experience.

Tip: Take plenty of cash.

G. Hudson, 2 persons 6 May 2017
FC Barcelona - Villareal CF

Barcelona was a fantastic city which we both really enjoyed.

Anonymous, 2 persons 19 April 2017
FC Barcelona - Juventus

Everything ran smoothly and we had a really enjoyable and hassle free trip. Atmosphere at camp nou was amazing and even though Barca lost the match the fans were lively and friendly. There was a flag on every seat and one of the best moments of the night was singing El Cant del Barca and waving the flag along with 100,000 supporters.

Tip: Get to the stadium early to find your way around and soak up the atmosphere. Stadium is easy to reach by metro from city centre. Aerobus from airport is only 10.30 euros for a return ticket to city centre and was quick and easy to use. Make sure you know which terminal you are flying from on your return journeyas they are served by different buses. Ryanair flies out of T2B.

R. Homer, 3 persons 19 April 2017
FC Barcelona - Juventus

Everything went very smoothly. Only slight disappointment was that with an 10 year old and an eleven old the seats weren't all together although 2 were and the other two were fairly close but separate in a different block. I thought when I booked all seats were guaranteed to be together..

Tip: If you book the full stadium tour make sure you have time as it is closed on match day . We had booked the tour but couldn't do it the days before or after the match due to flight times.

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

City info

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

Barcelona: following in the steps of Gaudí

The capital of Catalunya has a particularly rich patrimony, and is dominated by the colourful, phantasmagorical architectural works of Gaudí. The medieval buildings of the Barrio Gótico, the grand boulevards of the modernist Eixample and the traditional village feel of Gràcia all exert a powerful charm that draws visitors year on year.

Where to start exploring the city’s artistic and architectural wonders?

An obligatory stopping point is the Sagrada Familia (Metro L2 and L5, Sagrada Familia stop), Gaudí’s Gothic-influenced cathedral and great emblem of the Catalan capital. It is saturated with symbols worked in superb detail, its basilica endlessly enthralling to behold. The project is so enormous that it still isn’t finished 120 years after the first stone was laid. Word is that it’s almost done now – but don’t hold your breath!

 

About fifteen minutes walk away you’ll find another Gaudí work, the Casa Milà (metro L3 and L5, Diagonal stop), commonly known as “La Pedrera”.  It is a monumental work of Catalan modernism dating from the beginning of the 19th century, and has a deserving place on the UNESCO World Heritage list. So does the eccentric Parc Güell (bus 24 and 92), another Gaudí creation which is without doubt the most visited park in the city.

Don’t worry – if architecture isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other treasures to discover. Lovers of surrealism and cubism should take themselves to the Fondation Joan Miró and the Pablo Picasso Museum, which display the works of the two of Spain’s greatest painters.  

Eating out in Barcelona

While you’ll find all the classic Spanish dishes here, Catalunya has a reputation for producing the country’s best cuisine. Between tradition and innovation Catalan gastronomy balances the homely and comforting with the frankly surprising.

If you like tapas, we strongly recommend going to Bar Cañete situated on Carrer de la Unió, an adjacent street to the famous Ramblas (metro L3, Liceu stop). Alternatively, at a more affordable price, sample the tapas of d’E58 on the Rambla de Poblenou (metro L4 Poble Nou or Llacuna stops).

Several Basque establishments also offer a vast selection of lip-smacking “pintxos”. The best can be found at Euskal Etxea, in the heart of the Born area (metro L4 Jaume I or Barceloneta stops). 

Shopping under the sun

Did you know that Zara, Mango, Desigual, Massimo Dutti and Springfield are all Spanish? While not all of them are Catalan, their collections display a particular type of elegance shared by the entire Iberian Peninsula.

The Passeig de Gràcia (metro L2, L3 and L4, Passeig de Gràcia stop), like the French Champs-Elysées, hosts the luxury boutiques of the great European and international fashion houses. Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo – a veritable paradise if your wallet is well padded!

On the Carrer de Pelai you’ll find classic ready-to-wear fashions, including Bershka, Stradivarius, Zara, C&A, Celio, and Mango. One advantage is that they are all concentrated on the same street. Another main shopping avenue is the Portal de l’Àngel which has many of the above-mentioned shops, as well as Benetton, Massimo Dutti, El Corte Inglés, H&M, Pull&Bear, Levi’s, Desigual, Intimissimi, Jack&Jones and Women’s Secret. These commercial arteries branch off from the Plaça Catalunya (metro L1 and L3, Plaça Catalunya stop), around which many other brands have also made their home.

For rainy days (of which there are thankfully few!) you can also feed your addiction in numerous shopping centres. The Diagonal MarLes Glòries and Maremagnum centres are among the biggest, but there are plenty of others throughout the city. 

In general, both shopping centres and the shops of big international brands are open every day from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 9pm. Independent boutiques often open from 10am to 1.30pm and again from 4.30pm/5pm to 8.30/9pm to make space for the traditional Spanish siesta. 

Getting around in Barcelona

The public transport system in Barcelona is extensive and well connected. A single ticket costs €2.20 and allows you to travel around the centre of Barcelona by bus, metro or tram for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

If you plan to take public transport regularly, it will work out cheaper for you to buy the T 10, a travel card that gives you ten journeys for €10.20 (so about €1 per trip – 50% less than a single ticket!). The card isn’t personalised, so more than one person can share it.

You can use the Hola BCN! travel card for all metro lines, tram lines, TMB buses, and trains (within zone 1), as well as the Montjuïc funicular, for the number of days chosen (2, 3, 4 or 5 days), again at very reasonable prices. It can even include a return ticket between the airport and the city-centre.

The Barcelona metropolitan transport website, TMB, enables you to find the best route for your journey, as well as consult an interactive map of public transport, the timetable of each line, and, even better, get status updates.

Barcelona at night

Barcelona is lively both day and night and is often ranked among the top European party cities. Catalans eat late, drink late and go out late. Don’t be surprised to find restaurants still shut at 8pm, bars empty at 9pm and clubs with doors closed at midnight!

In the happening neighbourhoods of the Born and Barrio Gótico, as well as in the edgier Raval, you’ll find many tapas bars and lively cocktail bars. The atmosphere is young, vibrant and relaxed. In the more eccentric Gràcia, you’ll find more intimate, boho-arty locales, while Poble Nou is populated with large nightclubs and bars attracting indie rock fans. Villa Olímpica on the seafront hosts a number of trendy lounge bars and clubs with open-air sections.

Our recommendations 

- The Caribbean Club (Raval, metro L1 and L3 Catalunya stop) located in the warren of the Raval district. Decent prices and excellent cocktails.

El Bosc de les Fades (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Drassanes stop): a highly unusual bar filled with trees and fairies to create a world of enchantment.

- Razzmatazz (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica, metro L4 Bogatell or Poble Nou stops and L1 Marina stop) is a gigantic complex which combines a main concert venue with a multi-room club. Its cutting edge programming draws fans of all types of electronic music, from electro pop to tech house.

- The Apolo (Poble Sec, metro L2 and L3 Parallel stop) is a concert venue and über cool club where top DJs and the crème de la crème of the international indie-rock scene come to perform. There are very popular theme nights on Mondays (“Nasty Monday”), Tuesdays (“Crappy Tuesday”) and Wednesdays (“Cupcake 80”).

- The Macarena (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Liceu or Drassanes stop) is an intimate club which specialises in underground electro. It’s free entry for women, and is about €5 for men.
