Titles galore!

Jordi Clos


The Liga ACB title triumph concluded a golden year for FC Barcelona as the club won no less than ten trophies among the professional team and four more were secured by the amateurs.


Many will remember the 2008/09 for the treble success of the football team as Pep Guardiola led his team to the league championship, the Copa del Rey, when they defeated Athletic Club 4-1 in Mestalla, and then the Champions League, with a 2-0 victory against Manchester United in Rome. Added to that, the incredible 6-2 win against Real Madrid in the Santiago BernabÚu ensured that it was an historic campaign.

Basketball success

Barša's last trophy win of the season was the Liga ACB as Regal Barša defeated TAU 3-1 in a spectacular play-off series. After five years without winning the league, Xavi Pascual's stars won it again as well as reaching the Euroleague Final Four and the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Two handball trophies

Handball was also an arena where Barša thrived once more as the team picked up two pieces of silverware. The first one came back in September when Barša Borges beat Real Ciudad 26-25 in the Spanish Super Cup. A change of coach brought even more success as the team then went on to beat the same opposition 29-26 in the final of the Copa del Rey.

Four for hockey

The roller hockey team's achievements even eclipsed the football side as they scooped four trophies. Quim PaŘls oversaw triumphs in the league, the Intercontinental Cup, the Continental Cup and the Spanish Super Cup in his last season in charge.

Losing in the quarter finals of the league against Pinto, the f˙tbol sala team did reach the final of the cup but were beaten by Murcia-based ElPozo.

Amateur triumphs

Amateur success was also abundant as the ice hockey side won the league against PuigcerdÓ and followed that up by winning the trans-Pyrenean Cup. The baseball team and the wheelchair basketball side won the Catalan league titles. The hockey side, the womens' volleyball team and the rugby side all secured promotions to the next division up too.
