Futbol Club Barcelona (Catalan pronunciation: also known as Barcelona and familiarly as Barça, is a professional football club, based in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.


Founded in 1899 by a group of Swiss, English and Catalan footballers led by Joan Gamper, the club has become a symbol of Catalan culture and Catalanism, hence the motto "Més que un club" (More than a club). The official Barcelona anthem is the "Cant del Barca" written by Jaume Picas and Josep Maria Espinás. Unlike many other football clubs, the supporters own and operate Barcelona. It is the world's second-richest football club in terms of revenue, with an annual turnover of €398 million.

In international club football Barcelona have won five UEFA Champions League, a record four UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, five UEFA Super Cup, a record three Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and a record three FIFA Club World Cup trophies.
