Barbolla is one of those magical places that help us to understand why Athletic fans are born and graze where they want. Barbolla is a small town in Segovia, located very close to the road to Madrid at the height of Boceguillas, which has a great Athletic Club fan group. And great is no exaggeration. Its mayor Basilio del Olmo tells it clearly: there were 4 or 5 Athletic followers who began to organize among themselves and with time a group of about 70 members was formed in a village that in winter barely has 120 inhabitants. Obviously, the mayor is also a member of the fan club.
June is the month they celebrate their anniversary. By the hand of its president Juan Estebaranz, with each birthday it is also time to organize a small recognition. In this case it was up to the women’s team to be present at the XVI anniversary, where it came with a mythical name, Eli Ibarra.
And so, between flights of storks towards the bell tower of the village church and the comings and goings of the majestic and indispensable red-and-white zone of the fan club, a festive day passed. Friends from the neighbouring Peña de Sepúlveda came and, moreover, there was people who also came from Bilbao and its surroundings. A good day where Barbolla has doubled and tripled its census and reminds us that there is a piece of Athletic one step away from the Segovian National I.
