Since 1899

Founded in 1899 by Swiss football fanatic Joan Gamper, FC Barcelona have come to epitomise Catalan culture, encapsulated in the motto ‘Més que un club’ (More than a club). One of Spain’s “big two” alongside age-old rivals Real Madrid, FCB have an unrivalled pedigree in fostering world-class homegrown talent. The much-vaunted La Masia (‘The Farmhouse’ in English) almost single-handedly produced Barcelona’s all-conquering side of the early 2000s, with notable alumni including Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Pep Guardiola passing through its doors.

To this day, FC Barcelona’s ability to produce technically accomplished players who conform to a recognisable style of play is perhaps the most important element of their global appeal, and the Doha crowd will be looking for those tell-tale tiki-taka touches in the Class of 2020. This will be Barca’s third appearance in the Al Kass International Cup, having featured in the inaugural 2012 edition and also in 2014. Having never made it as far as the semi-finals, this year’s crop of talented youngsters will be determined to make an impression this time around.
