FC Barcelona is a well-known sports club from the Spanish city of Barcelona, often abbreviated as Barça. The club was founded in 1899 by Joan Gamper and his group and has played in Spain's highest football league, the Primera División, since 1929.

Especially during the Franco dictatorship, FC Barcelona became an important symbol of Catalan identity and Catalanism. To this day, the club maintains its image as more than just a sports club and is also involved in social projects.

FC Barcelona is the record cup winner in Spain and has won the second most domestic league titles. At European level, the club first won the European Champion Clubs' Cup, now known as the UEFA Champions League, in 1992 and have won the title four more times since then. In 2009, FC Barcelona became the first Spanish club to win the treble consisting of the Spanish Championship, the Cup (Copa del Rey) and the UEFA Champions League.

In 2015, FC Barcelona won the treble for the second time.
