Discover why William is the number one sports betting site by following Barcelona as they attempt to defend their La Liga crown.
Bet on Barcelona: the iconic European football club
FC Barcelona are a Spanish football club based in Catalonia, Spain. They play in La Liga, which is the highest level of Spanish football. They are one of the most recognised sports teams in the world and are regularly cited as the best football team of the last decade.
Recently they have had unrivalled success at home and in European competition, with five Champions League titles under their belt. They play their home games at Camp Nou, which is Europe's biggest stadium.
Barcelona came into existence in 1899 and have ever since stood as a symbol for the unique Catalonian culture and society. Their mantra Més que un club (more than a club) serves to highlight the role that Barcelona plays in Catalan society, although as their results show they are pretty handy on the football pitch regardless.
'Barca' won the first La Liga title in 1929, something that they have done a further 25 times since. They have also won a record 30 Copa Del Rey titles. They have had some legendary players represent them in their history, including Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Ronaldo.

Barcelona : The side that has changed the way we think about football
Although they have had a rich and varied history, today's Barcelona side will be the one remembered most in the future. Since the early part of the new millennium, they have been often cited as the greatest football team on the planet. They have won four Champions League titles since 2006 and have effectively changed the way football is played around the world. Their 'tiki-taka' style of play has been often mimicked, but rarely equaled.
They also have a world-renowned academy, La Masia, which produced Lionel Messi, and the funding to spend big on world-class players in recent years, such as Phillipe Coutinho.
As mentioned, Barcelona have a fierce rivalry with Real Madrid. It is, of course, first and foremost a football rivalry, but it has been fueled by years of political and social tension. That does not take away from the football action though; El Clásico is one of the most exciting sporting events in the world and our traders and tipsters often find it hard to separate the two sides.
