How to Join a Soccer Team in Barcelona

Written by Miguel

If you’re a big soccer fan looking to move abroad, Barcelona is certainly a great choice.

Not only because is it the home of FC Barcelona, one of the biggest football clubs in the world, but also because it gives you the opportunity to don a jersey yourself and enter the pitch – not exactly Camp Nou, mind you, but a pitch nonetheless.

Today’s blog article by ShBarcelona will give you some interesting details on how to join a soccer team in Barcelona.

What you should know when joining a soccer team in Barcelona

The Barcelona International Football League

The Barcelona International Football League (BIFL) is a competitive amateur soccer league formed in 1992.

Although it was created with foreigners in mind by British expats, it quickly attracted plenty of Spaniards, who now make up a majority of its rosters.

Still, the league includes players from not only almost every country in Europe, but from other continents as well. (So even if you are looking to join a football club in Barcelona, you can keep on reading this article.)

Despite being amateur, the popularity of the league amongst the locals has made it possible for most teams to get sponsorships, which helps them pay the 2400€/season subscription fee and support all the costs of equipment.

Find out what ShBarcelona has to offer!

Joining a team

If you’re worried about your skill level, remember that this is an amateur league. While the competitiveness is high, most players started just like you, with an interest in football and a will to be physically active.

Even if you don’t become an undisputed regular, as long as you are reasonably fit and used to playing soccer, you should be able to make your team’s starting eleven at least a few times during the season.

Players also become unavailable often due to personal or professional reasons, so your chance to shine will eventually come.

To look for a team, start by clicking “Juega con nosotros” on the league’s website and fill the form with the details asked, such as your nationality, playing position and contact information.

You will then appear on the new players page (“Jugadores nuevos”), where teams will be able to see you and send you an offer to join them.

Meanwhile, to get yourself familiarized with the league and its level of competition, you can always pick some games from the fixtures to attend.
