Champions wherever you look

Edgar Fornós

Although the basketball and roller hockey league titles are still undecided, it’s already been a record year for FC Barcelona: World Club Champions in football, kings of Europe in basketball and roller hockey, and runners up in European handball.

The 2009/10 season is drawing to a close for the different professional sports sections of the Club and will go down in history as one of the most successful in the Club’s long history. The football, basketball, handball and roller hockey teams have set Europe alight in an unforgettable season.

Roller Hockey – Kings of Europe

The fame of the FC Barcelona Sorli-Discau roller hockey team keeps on spreading. In Valdagno, Italy, the team coached by Ferran Pujalte beat Roncato Patí Vic 4-1 in the Final Six to lift an astonishing 19th European Cup.
