FC Barcelona team in 1901

It’s a double anniversary for the Club today: on this day in 1899 they played their first ever match against the English Colony in Barcelona in the old Velodrome in Bonanova. The Barça team didn’t play in their now iconic colours though, as the founding meeting of the Club on November 29th hadn’t decided on an official strip.

Two years later, in 1901 and on the exact same date, FC Barcelona played their first game with nets in the goals – beating Català 4-1 on the pitch of the Carretera de Horta.
