Birth of FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona is a football club based in Barcelona that competes in La Liga, the top football league in Spain. The club was formed in 1899 by a group of Swiss, English and Spanish men led by Joan Gamper, and played its first friendly match on 8 December 1899. Initially, Barcelona played against other local clubs in various Catalan tournaments. In 1929 the club became one of the founding members of La Liga, Spain's first truly national league. As of 2010, Barcelona is one of three clubs never to have been relegated from the top level of Spanish football, the others being Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid.[2] Barcelona has amassed various records since the foundation. Regionally, domestically, and continentally, they have set several records in winning various official and unofficial competitions. Since they began playing in regional competitions to the end of the Catalan championship in 1940, they won a record 23 titles from a possible 38. Domestically, the club has a record number of titles in the still-running competitions, namely the Copa del Rey and the Spanish SuperCup. The club has signed several high-profile players, paying large transfer fees for some of the most decorated players. The club paid a record L5 million for Diego Maradona in 1982 and sold him two years later for another record L7 million to Napoli. The club's players have received a record seven FIFA World Player awards.
