The Joan Gamper Trophy is also called 'La Festa del Gamper' and called 'El Trofeu Joan Gamper' in Catalan. The Gamper cup is an annual pre-season football game hosted by FC Barcelona. The trophy is named in honour of Joan Gamper, (Hans Kamper), the founder of FC Barcelona and one of the first FC Barcelona players. Gamper was originally a Swiss citizen. He was club captain at FC Basel and co-founder and player at both FC Basel and FC Zürich football teams. Gamper was president of FC Barcelona for several periods.

The Barcelona club was founded when on 22nd October 1899 Gamper placed an advert in the sports magazine "Los Deportes" looking for players to form a football club in Barcelona. This led to a meeting at the "Gimnasio Solé" gym  on November 29th 1899 and Football Club Barcelona was a reality. The founding members were Swiss, British and Spanish soccer enthusiasts. The Joan Gamper Trophy was established in 1966 by the FC Barcelona president Enric Llaudet. From 1966 to 1996 the Gamper was a mini tournament that was played by four teams, but since 1996 the Gamper Trophy has been a single game between FC Barcelona and an invited team.

If you are in Spain you can see the Gamper game live on Catalan TV3 or live online on the Catalan TV3 website. Or listen live on R@dio Barça
