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.
