Javier Clemente told us at the beginning of the week that Athletic was starting to prepare to face Atlético de Madrid: “In San Mamés it’s always a tough fixture”. Clemente will have the opportunity to prove it from the San Mamés box. He was the last coach to train both teams and revealed us that even the fixtures were always very competitive, the good harmony that has existed al over the years has prevailed. The list of players who have worn the jerseys of both Atlético and Athletic has also been very extensive and outstanding, with historic names such as Andoni Goikoetxea, who will also witness the encounter.
Stewart Sugg, Fawda, Rafael Henzel, Julián Duque and Michael Zimbalist will also be among the guests of the San Mamés box. All of them will be the protagonists of the new edition of Thinking Football, the film festival about life and football sponsored by the Athletic Club Foundation that will start this coming week from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd.
Moreover, the presence of ex-presidents such as Fernando Lamikiz and Ana Urquijo is also confirmed. Together with the ten members chosen by lot, the Balmaseda CF and Ikastola Olabide will be the representatives of our clubs. And in a very special day for the Athletic Club peñas, with more than a hundred distributed all over the stands of San Mamés, in the box will also be the Iparraldeko Peña. In addition, there will also be a delegation of the following peñas: La Alcazaba del Athletic, Cultural Jerezana 1898-1998, Cacereña Lezama de Cáceres, Urioste Zuri Gorri, Athletic Club Urkabustaiz, Cultural Urquiaga, Athletic Urzaiz and Urzaiz Ahri de Galdakao.
