The Gamper cup is always a festive evening. The Joan Gamper Cup is the only game of the Barcelona football year when all 98,772 seats at Camp Nou are on sale to the general public and at low prices. The Gamper Trophy Cup, called Trofeu Joan Gamper in the Catalan language, is a festive pre-season friendly game and a great chance to see the new first team presentation under the leadership of new coach Ernesto Valverde, who himself is a former FC Barcelona player. 

In 2017 the Gamper trophy celebrates its 52nd edition. The Joan Gamper Trophy is also called 'La Festa del Gamper.' Joan Gamper, (Hans Kamper) was the man who started it all when he founded FC Barcelona on November 29th 1899 and was one of the first players. Gamper was originally a Swiss citizen and later became Spanish. The club colours blue & red were inspired by the colours of the football team in Gampers home town Basel in Switzerland. FC Basel still play in the same colours as FC Barcelona. Gamper was club captain at FC Basel in Switzerland and co-founder of both FC Basel and FC Zürich football teams. Gamper was the first president of FC Barcelona and served as president for several periods later in his life. 

The Barcelona football club was founded by Gamper, when on 22nd October 1899 he 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 then football club Barcelona was a reality. The founding members were Swiss, British and Spanish soccer enthusiasts.  You can read more about Gamper on wikipedia.
The Joan Gamper Trophy was established in 1966 by the FC Barcelona president Enric Llaudet to honour Gamper. 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. The Joan Gamper Cup is also the only game of the year when all 98,772 seats at Camp Nou are on sale to the general public and at low prices.
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
