Equip de Hoquei patins

The Barça hockey team has experienced a year of change. The most outstanding achievement in 2011 was the Spanish Cup win, but they didn't do so well in the Champions League (eliminated in the quarter-finals) nor in the OK League last season (thus breaking a run of good years). At the end of the season, the technical secretary, Quim Paüls, and the manager, Ferran Pujalte, ended their successful reign at the Club.

The legendary Gaby Cairo would become the new manager and would lead changes in the section, mainly at a sporting level, with the signings of Pablo Alvarez and Marc Gual. Favourites like Carlos Lopez, David Paez, and Adroher, all left.

The new season would start very well for Barça:  a thrashing of Reus brought the Spanish Super Cup home to the Palau. In addition, the team are leaders in the League and are unbeaten in the Champions League.
