Bilbao going mad lately!

Thanks to our football team, Athletic Club Bilbao – Bilbao is going mad lately.

The city has a strong tradition of football and the supporters are very passionate about their team, which is composed only of Basque players.

This year, Athletic is having a good season in “La Liga”. They have reached the King’s Cup final, and last week, they had an unforgettable win over Manchester United. This is the best Athletic team in many years and we are bursting with joy.

This week, the whole city is getting ready for the return game that will take place in Bilbao this Thursday against United. We know it is not going to be an easy match, but we believe in our team, and San Mamés, the stadium, will be completely packed to support our team.

The whole city will celebrate the great party of football! Supporters will be seen in red and white, the colors of our team. Bars near to the ground will be crowded before, during and after the match. If you are in Bilbao on Thursday and want to experience the football atmosphere, do not miss “Pozas” area.

Have a look at the pictures and see how the city is getting ready for this Thursday.

Go Lions, go!!!! You are a unique Club!

Visiting the Athletic Club headquarters – an enjoyable experience!

Last Tuesday, Marta and I visited the Palace of Ibaigane which it is a beautiful building built in 1920 and now the headquarters of the Athletic Club de Bilbao, our dear football (soccer) team.

We meet Jon Zapirain, director of the Athletic Club Foundation, who showed us around and was very kind. We shared information about the Foundation as well as our idea of bringing Greeters and Football together.

Thanks Jon for helping us to face the future with confidence. Your hints will be of great help!

Definitely, this was a very special morning.
