Football communities around the globe tend to have many things in common from chants, colors, athletes, including names and logos. This is the case of Barcelona FC and the twin club Barcelona SC. Yes, there are two Barcelona clubs in the world, and coincidentally both are considered the most popular of their respective countries.

Barcelona Sporting Club was founded on May 1, 1925, by Spanish immigrant Eutimio Pérez. Based in Guayaquil Ecuador, the club was born 26 years after Barcelona FC and was highly influenced by the Catalan community. In an assembly that consisted of Catalan members and Guayaquil natives, the club settled to be named Barcelona SC over Deportivo Astilleros. Known as the Ídolo del Ecuador, Barcelona’s initial logo consisted of a shield with the cross of Saint George and the traditional red and yellow bars of the Senyera. Since then the crest has changed to what is now an identical logo of Barcelona FC. The only difference between both logos is the acronym inside the shield (FCB & BSC) along with the different background colors used. Barcelona de Guayaquil symbolic color is yellow rather than Blaugrana.
