Badalona Dracs (Catalan pronunciation: [bəðəˈɫonə ˈðɾaks], "Badalona Dragons") is an American football team based in Badalona, Catalonia.

History[edit]

Three enthusiastics of American football got together in Badalona on a December of 1987's evening to found the team. They were Pere Moliner, first president of the team, Ramón Ventura and Italian Alfonso Genchi. The team was founded as Badalona Drags. They changed names to Badalona Dracs later on.

Just a few months later, the team was established and the first ever American football game played in Spain was set for March 19th, 1988. Badalona Dracs played Palermo Cardinals (Italy), with a score of 18-12 for the Italians.

Later on, the first organized league in Spain was created with the Dracs joining three other teams, L'Hospitalet Pioners, Barcelona Búfals and the defunct Barcelona Boxers. Badalona Dracs won the competition. It was just the first of many championships. Dracs has one of the best championship records in Spain, including 5 LNFA titles.
