Normally Athletic Bilbao words we associate the Basque club in that city which has the distinction of being one of only three teams throughout the Spanish First Division that has ever fallen. A group whose hallmark is its policy of not signing foreign. But nevertheless, the importance of vizcaíno club allows us to discover and beyond and really funny things.
One of the most notable is that in Chile we find a stadium that honors his name Athletic Bilbao Stadium. It is located in Peñaflor, a commune barely 37 kilometers from the capital Santiago. The origin of the name is due to also called club Atletico Bilbao (in Castilian and not in English), an amateur team of the municipality that pays tribute to the Spanish set. While that is its origin, today, It is occupied by the Sportverein Jugendland Fussball, a picture of the Third Chilean division whose main peculiarity is that both his first and second uniform coincide with that of the German football team.
Atletico Bilbao Stadium as you can imagine is modest and nothing to do with the “other Cathedral”. On his battered lawn stands a rise in capacity 1.500 people, which could be extended to 3000. Luxury and glamor of the new San Mamés here are not. Markers are quite modest manuals and costumes.
But nevertheless, as a courtesy by the great tribute to the Basque club, It found that in Chile is also much to admire and Athletic. Definitely, one of the great.
