RCD Espanyol

Football is in the heart of every Catalan, therefore a visit to a stadium or going to a match is a must during your stay in the city of Barcelona.

One of the oldest clubs in Spain, RCD Espanyol was set up in 1900 by a group of students. The club was originally named ‘Sociedad Española de Football’ and was a reaction against the majority of clubs at the time being set up by foreigners. It was the first Spanish club to be set up by Spanish fans. The team has worn their blue and white strip since 1910 in honour of Catalan Admiral Roger de Lluria, a successful Admiral during the medieval period.
