The 2006–2007 season was an overall unsuccessful time for FC Barcelona in almost all competitions. Although the team managed to snatch the Supercopa de España, and finish second in the domestic league, a lot more was expected from the team that had been European champion. It started with the team's defeat at the final of the 2006 FIFA Club World Cup Final near the end of 2006, and the team did worse in 2007. This was the first of two bad seasons for the club, which led to great changes in the roster and direction. This also marks both the last season FC Barcelona wore a jersey without a sponsor and the first time a sponsor appeared in it: UNICEF (this was a non-commercial agreement).

Events

  • 30 June: Barça has reached the highest membership ever, with 156,366 members.[1]

Squad information
