Joan Gamper Trophy – Barcelona

Por el 22 July, 2014

Who was Joan Gamper and why is this trophy named after him?

FC Barcelona’s trophy is named after Joan Gamper, the club’s founder. Hans Gamper (known in Catalonia as ‘Joan’) was a Swiss who was born in Winthertur but who lived in Zurich and moved to Barcelona in the year 1,899.

That year, when football wasn’t popular yet in the Catalan capital, he founded a little team in Les Corts’ neighbourhood called “Foot-Ball Club Barcelona”. This old Barça team was made up of foreign players who, like Gamper, were living in Barcelona. In fact, he was one of the first players of the team. Years after he became also the president.

Joan Gamper never thought the team he founded would get to the top. In fact, depression led him to suicide at just 52 and he was never able to fully enjoy watching FC Barcelona, the team he had created, play in official competitions.

Joan Gamper Trophy

Joan Gamper Trophy is commonly known as “Barça’s Party”. This is why it is not just a match, but also a party, a celebration and thousands of feelings in only one night. Give a look to the Joan Gamper Tickets available for you!

Why is Barça ‘més que un club’?

Por el 10 February, 2012

Source: blaugranas.com

Probably you have heard or read that FC Barcelona is ‘més que un club’ and still you don’t know why. Let us explain it to you.

The quote ‘més que un club’ (more than a club) was used for the first time in 1968 by Narcís Serra the day he became the president of Barça. He said he had not just arrived to a football club, because Barça was more than that: ‘Barça is a feeling that all ‘culés’ love, he said.

A few years later, Agustí Montal, who in 1973 was one of the candidates to be Barça’s president, used this quote as his electoral campaign slogan. The ‘més que un club’ slogan was liked so much by Barcelona fans that it became the club’s slogan.

 ‘Més que un club’ started to be used officially during Franco’s dictatorship, but it has been ingrained in Barça since its creation, thanks to its founder, the Swiss Hans Gamper. ‘Més que un club’ was first used just because Barça is a club that defends the Catalan language and catalanism, and then also because of the opposition of the club to the dictatorship.

Now that the club is much ‘bigger’, ‘més que un club’ means that FC Barcelona is the representative of Catalonia in the world but also of many more things. Barça is more than a club because the club has a lot of different sport sections, because it has the ‘AND Barça’ (Barcelona’s essence), and because of its great humanitarian actions, which reached their high point when the club formalized the agreement with UNICEF.

As you can see, Barça, besides being a very good football and other sports team, do other things that make it even ‘bigger’, that make the club ‘més que un club’.

Seeing a Barça match at the Camp Nou is a unique, but unfortunately brief, experience. Therefore, we will give you some tips to help you not to waste any time in your visit to the largest stadium in Europe.

The Nou Camp is open every day of the year (except on the 1st and 6th of January and 25th December) so you can visit the stadium and see the incredible Museum of FC Barcelona. Do the Tour Camp Nou (a tour through the stadium + visit to the museum) or, even better, the Camp Nou Experience (which also includes seeing the new media section of the Camp Nou) and discover the stadium and the history of FC Barcelona. The schedule is Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6.30pm and Sundays from 10am to 14.30pm. Price for adults: 22 €.

Before the match starts, don’t waste too much time looking for your seat. First, find the access door you have written on your ticket (‘ACESS’, in Catalan). Once there, you’ll enter the grounds of Camp Nou. Then you must find the door (‘PORTA’) specified on the ticket. There you’ll have to validate the ticket in a machine (using the barcode). Once you’ve done this, look for the section where you should go, the number being specified on your ticket (‘BOCA’). Then you’ll see the pitch and among the rows there are stairs which you must use to find your seat. To the left and right of the stairs are the seats, and you’ll see that on one side are the even rows (in one row are the seats 20, then 22, then 24 …) and on the other side of the stairs the odd ones (19, 21, 23 …) … Go to the row specified on your ticket (‘FILA’) and then look for the seat specified on your ticket (‘SEIENT’) and you’ll be able to sit on it.

How to reach the Camp Nou? You can take your car, but we recommend taking public transport so you won’t have to look for parking place for your car (a difficult task). You can arrive at the Barça’s stadium by metro, bus or railway. If you go by moto, parking it isn’t a problem because you can put up it around the stadium (however, it’s forbidden to bring your helmet into the Camp Nou).

You should know also that  you can bring food to FC Barcelona’s stadium, but it’s banned to bring cans and bottles with lids.

Now you have some tips to take advantage of your visit to the Camp Nou, so now the only thing left is to book your tickets and enjoy them!
