Copa Barcelona

It would appear that The Copa Barcelona was contested only on two occasions. Barcelona was a very popular venue for British touring teams in the 1920s and in 1922 and 1924 the tourists played each other in Les Corts for the Copa.
(There was an earlier, unrelated Copa Barcelona, an early edition of the Catalan championship held in 1903 and won by...Barcelona).

The 1922 Copa Barcelona was contested by St Mirren and Notts County. The match marked the official opening Barcelona's new stadium at Les Corts.  
Saint Mirren had finished 8th in the Scottish League in the 1921–22 season.Their opponents had finished 13th in Division 2, but had (as the poster tells us) reached the semi finals of the FA cup.
Saint Mirren won 2-1 after extra time thanks to 2 goals by Dunky Walker (Saint Mirren's highest scorer of all time).

In May 1924 FA Cup winners Newcastle United took on Everton at Les Corts.
On this occasion the Copa Barcelona was won by Everton, the score being 3-2.
The Everton minute books reveal some interesting details of the preperation and negotiations regarding the tour:

Spanish Tour - The Secretary submitted new quotations re the proposed trip to Barcelona & stated that the price was now increased by over £11 per head.
