FC Barcelona was founded on 1899 by a group of twelve soccer fans led by Swiss entrepreneur Hans Gamper. In Spain, the team is a fierce rival of Real Madrid, with whom they duel regularly for the biggest titles each season. Their derby clashes, called El Clásico, attract major attention the world over.
FC Barcelona is one of the most successful football clubs in the world. The club has 121 official titles, including 29 Copa del Rey, 24 Spanish League titles, 12 Supercopas, 5 Champions League titles, 4 Cup Winners’ Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 5 European Super Cups and 3 Club World Cups.
As one of the most successful clubs of all time, FC Barcelona has gathered many prominent players in its ranks over the years. In 1979 the club signed a German, Bernd Schuster, paving the way for the signings of major international players, such as Diego Maradona and Gary Lineker. By the end of the 80s, coach Johan Cruyff had assembled something of a dream team containing club legends like Michael Laudrup, Ronald Koeman and Pep Guardiola. Since the turn of the century, the club has been home to a great collection of international stars such as Thierry Henry and Neymar Junior, and players brought through their renowned youth system, such as Lionel Messi, Andrés Iniesta and Xavi.
In 2015 Barcelona won the Spanish League, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League becoming the only team to achieve two triplets. Since July 2017 Rakuten is the official sponsor of FC Barcelona with the aim of boosting its global strategy of the brand.
