The book takes the reader on a chronological journey of Barça’s 2010-11 and the beginning of the 2011-12 seasons. The coffee-table book shows Barça’s most intense and exciting moments of the year with never-before-seen personal photographs of the players. The four vibrant matches against Real Madrid, the extraordinary win against Manchester United in the Champions League final, the achievement of winning a highly disputed League title, both Spanish Super Cups and the European Super Cup are all included in the book.

The players and technical staff are the protagonists

The protagonists of this unique visual journey are the players, managers and technical staff of Barça’s first team. The book also covers the individual feats accomplished by the first-team players like the Ballon d’Or nomination of all three homegrown Masía players and the team’s newest additions, Cesc and Alexis. The book also shows the readers a more intimate side of the squad like Josep Guardiola’s surprise 40th birthday celebration and the squad’s holiday toast in the dressing room.

FC Barcelona’s official photographer, Miguel Ruiz, has accompanied Pep Guardiola’s team throughout the whole season and he has documented, from inside the dressing room, the team’s victories, their spectacular play, their connection with the fans, their team spirit and the world wide acknowledgement of players like Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Valdés, Alves, etc. The copy, which gives the reader a unique insight into the Azulgrana world, was written by Marcos López, journalist for El Periódico de Cataluña.

10% of the proceeds will go to the FC Barcelona Foundation

Barça’s first-team players have asked that 10% of the proceeds of the sale of this book be donated to FC Barcelona Foundation’s Clean Football Project. This project, which aims to teach values through football, is designed to reach children and youngsters in Catalonia’s neighborhoods that have been identified as priority for social and communal intervention.
