About Terrassa

Terrassa Futbol Club, S.A.D. is a List of football clubs in Spain based in Terrassa, Province of Barcelona, in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Founded in 1906, it currently plays in Tercera División Groups 1-9, holding home matches at Estadi Olímpic de Terrassa, with a capacity of 11.500 spectators.

History

In 1914, Terrassa's foundations are set, with the first regulations being created by the board of directors, presided by Narcís Freixa Ubach. Three years later, the club plays one of its first international matches, against FC Basel of Switzerland, also winning three trophies: Copa Ramón Torras, Copa del Día Gráfico and Copa Sport, and playing (and winning) twice against FC Barcelona - 1–0 and 2–1.

Terrassa won its first Copa Catalunya in 1925, and first reached the Segunda División seventeen years later, although it would be immediately relegated, for the following 11 seasons.

In 1960–61, with the team again in level two - 1960–61 Segunda División - a Copa del Rey tie against Barça befell at the Camp Nou, with the hosts winning it 4–2, in front of over 80,000 spectators. The new grounds, Estadi Olímpic de Terrassa, were also inaugurated, with a 2–4 loss with Sevilla FC, as the club's new exile in Tercera División would be even longer the second time (14 years, although it is worth noting Segunda División B had not yet been created).

On 29 May 1972, new club president Josep Masdefiol i Peralta was elected: other than aiding the club financially, he would eventually create the Trofeo Internacional de Fútbol Ciudad de Terrassa, with Real Zaragoza, Ferencvárosi TC and FC Bayern Munich being the first participants. Still, the club's anthem was created, by Vicenç Villatoro.

Terrassa played the 1977 relegation play-offs against AD Almería, winning after its opponent had illegally fielded a player. In the 1980's, the club eventually dropped two levels, and had reached the regional leagues by 1990. As in several times in the past, the City and town halls intervened and allowed for the club to stay afloat.

In 2001–02 Segunda División B's Segunda B, Terrassa finished in fifth position, but was allowed to participate in the promotion playoffs after Zaragoza's first team 2001–02 La Liga, rendering Real Zaragoza B' possible promotion impossible. The promotion was attained after six matches and as many wins.

The club would play the next three years in division two, performing solidly in the first two: in 2002–03 Copa del Rey, Terrassa fought valliantly against Real Madrid C.F., before bowing 5–7 on aggregate, greatly thanks to longtime midfielder Xavier Monteys Verdaguer, aka Monty. A fourth Catalonia Cup was added, with a win at CF Gavà, before the team eventually returned to the third level at the end of 2004–05 Segunda División, as third from bottom. Former Spain national football team Juanele, aged 33, played one of his last professional seasons with the club, but only found the net once.

Hymn



Terrassa, Terrassa,

Terrassa, Terrassa.

Endavant, endavant,

endavant, endavant,

el Terrassa sempre triomfant.

Joventut, joventut,

cridanera i alegre endavant,

i portant cada pit un escut,

i portant un color roig i blanc.

Joventut, joventut,

Endavant, endavant, endavant.

Un color roig i blanc,

un color roig i blanc,

un color roig i blanc,

i un escut.

Un escut sobre el pit

que és el crit de l'esforç,

té darrera la ciutat

que és bandera

i que és un nom,

i un equip ha lliurat,

i un equip que ha lliurat

les suors.

Terrassa, Terrassa,

Terrassa, Terrassa.

Endavant, endavant,

endavant, endavant,

el Terrassa sempre triomfant.

Lyrics: Vicenç Villatoro (1973)
