History and profileEdit

Founded in 1979, Sport is owned by Grupo Zeta, which also publishes El Periódico de Catalunya.[1][2]

Ideologically, it defines itself as the newspaper of the supporters of FC Barcelona, its slogan being "Sempre amb el Barça" (always with Barça in Catalan), and focuses primarily to a Catalonia-based readership, despite being written in Spanish. It also covers RCD Espanyol and Catalan and Spanish football in general, plus other sports, especially basketball, motor sports, cycling, handball and tennis.
