Basketball is FC Barcelona’s most important professional section, both in a sporting sense and socially. It is currently the second favourite sport of all the blaugrana followers. The FC Barcelona basketball team was founded on August 24th 1926, and in the 1980s it began to enjoy one of the most successful periods of its history, thanks to players such as Juan Antonio San Epifanio 'Epi', Nacho Solozábal and Chicho Sibilio, among others. In fact, this generation has since given rise to many other great players: Andrés Jiménez, Audie Norris, Juan Carlos Navarro, Rodrigo de la Fuente, Roberto Dueñas, Pau Gasol, Dejan Bodiroga and Sarunas Jasikevicius are just a few of the names that have marked turning points in the history of the section.
In total, the team has won 2 Euroleagues, 18 Leagues and 25 Copas del Rey, as well as many other national and international titles.
