Futbol Club Barcelona Femení is a women's football team from Barcelona which was founded as Club Femení Barcelona in 1988. It is the women's section of FC Barcelona. It is the most successful women's football team in Spain, with six league titles, eight national cups, one UEFA Women's Champions League[1] and one Spanish supercup.

History[edit]

Club Femení Barcelona, which was sponsored by FC Barcelona, was a founding member of the current Primera División (founded as Liga Nacional) in 1988. They had a successful 3-year run in the early 1990s, winning the 1994 Copa de la Reina and being the championship's runner-up in 1992 and 1994, but they subsequently declined to bottom table positions.

In 2001, CF Barcelona was incorporated to FC Barcelona as an official section as the Spanish League was refounded into the Superliga Femenina, but they were not accepted due to their results in the previous season. After two unsuccessful appearances in the promotion playoffs, the team was promoted in 2004. They ended in mid-table positions for the next two seasons, but in 2006–07 they ended in last and were thus relegated.

Barcelona returned to the Superliga the next year, and between 2009 and 2011, they consolidated themselves in the top positions. In 2011, they won their second Spanish Cup, beating local rival Espanyol 1–0 in the final,[2] and in 2012, they won their first national championship with a record 94 points,[3] qualifying for the first time for the UEFA Champions League, where they were defeated by Arsenal in the first round. The title was successfully defended in 2013 with a last matchday away win over leading team Athletic Bilbao, and weeks later they also won the national cup with a 4–0 win over Prainsa Zaragoza to become the fifth team to win the Spanish double.

Barcelona qualified for the first time the quarterfinals of the Women's Champions League in the 2013–14 edition. Three seasons later, they reached the semifinals and in 2019, the club played its first final on 18 May, where it was defeated 1–4 by Lyon.

On 9 February 2020, Barcelona won the inaugural Supercopa de España when they decimated Real Sociedad 10–1 in the final.[4] On 8 May, Barcelona were crowned league champions for the fifth time during which they were unbeaten in the 21 games they had played, before the season prematurely ended in January due to the Covid-19 pandemic in Spain.[5] On 25 August, Barcelona were defeated 0–1 by VfL Wolfsburg in the single-legged semifinal of the UEFA Women's Champions League.[6]

On 13 January 2021, Barcelona were defeated 2–3 on penalties by Atlético Madrid in the semifinal of the Supercopa de España.[7] On 13 February, Barcelona defeated Logroño 3–0 in the final of the 2020 Copa de la Reina after it was postponed from 31 May 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.[8] On 9 May, Barcelona were crowned league champions for an unprecedented sixth time after nearest rivals Levante drew 1–1 to Espanyol. They achieved this while they had a perfect record in the league, winning all 26 of their games.[9] On 16 May, Barcelona won the UEFA Women's Champions League title for the first time after they beat Chelsea 4–0 in the final in Gothenburg, with all four goals coming in the first 36 minutes of the match. In doing so, Barcelona became the first ever club to have been European champions in both men's and women's football.[10][11] On 31 May, Barcelona defeated Levante 4–2 in the Copa de la Reina final to win the trophy for the eighth time,[12] becoming the first-ever Spanish women's side (fifth overall) to win the continental treble. The club also set an unprecedented record of both the men's and women's team having won a treble.[13] Amidst this success, Barcelona announced Lluís Cortés is set to stay for two more years,[14] following which reports emerged that the players had called for Cortés to be sacked citing the need to refresh and start over.[15][16] In response, though Cortés admitted that a change was indeed necessary, he maintained the rumours were unfounded.[17]

On 1 June, Barcelona suffered their first league defeat of the season as they lost 3–4 to Atlético Madrid.[18] On 27 June, ahead of Barcelona's 9–1 thrashing of Eibar in their final league game of the season, Lluís Cortés announced that he would leave Barcelona following that game amidst massive unrest within the team.[19][20]

On 2 July, Jonatan Giráldez was appointed as the new manager of Barça Femení following Lluís Cortés' exit.[21] On 8 August, Barcelona won the inaugural Joan Gamper Trophy after they thrashed Juventus 6–0, with the first 5 goals scored within 30 minutes.[22]
