A club-endorsed book celebrating the rich history of FC Barcelona, one of the world’s most important soccer clubs. Now updated to include the 2017–18 season!
Barça: The Illustrated History of FC Barcelona chronicles the rise of the most dominant soccer team in the modern era. Not only have they won everything there is to win in recent times, they do so with a style, panache, and brio that has never been seen in world soccer.
They excite fans across the globe, making household names of Xavi, Messi, Iniesta, Suarez, and others.
Along with profiles of Barça’s legendary players and important figures, this officially endorsed book traces the club’s history from its formation in 1899 through the trials and tribulation of growth, the battle to emerge from the shadow—politically and sportingly—of Madrid, the blossoming of the club in the 1960s, European glory in the 1980s and ‘90s, and their ascension to superpower of world soccer.
