Athletic Club

Athletic Club as an institution, along with its supporters are characterized by their desire to defend values which are becoming increasingly uncommon in football and in sports overall in the 21st Century. Our pride, reflected to the hilt in the club’s policy concerning the Young Player's Reserve, has become a uniting force which outweighs the discrepancies to be found in our daily lives, making our philosophy different to any other and different to the way football is understood throughout the world.Athletic Club is located in Bilbao, in the province of Biscay (The Basque Country). The club's sporting philosophy is governed by a code which states that only players, who have come up through the club's young players' reserve or the young players™ reserve of the other clubs in The Basque Country, which includes the following territories: Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, Araba, Nafarroa, Lapurdi, Zuberoa and Nafarroa Behera or players that were born in these territories, may be signed up.

2012-13 season:

The season is memorable since the team reaches a European final for the second time in its history, leaving behind unforgettable qualifying rounds against United, Schalcke or Sporting de Portugal. In the final, Athletic is defeated by Atletico Madrid in Bucharest.

Athletic also reaches the Copa final. And once again the rival is FC Barcelona as occurred three years earlier in Valencia. It did not happen but at least the team was able to classify to dispute the Europa League qualifying rounds.

UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino has said that should Bilbao be a host city at the European Championships in 2020, they may host Spain.

Speculation this week is that Athletic Bilbao’s new San Mames will be one of the 13 grounds across 13 different cities in the European continent to host matches at Euro 2020.

UEFA’s Executive Committee is being held in Bilbao this week and allowed reporters to probe the European game’s governing body over possible hosting rights.

“Bilbao is a great city, a city of football and one that also has a new stadium,” general secretary Infantino has responded this week.

“The city chosen by the Spanish Football Federation must meet certain criteria in terms of stadium size and other aspects relating to hotels, airports, flight connections. And of the four that have been proposed are compliant.

“And above all that counts the new stadium, as they have in Bilbao.

“At least two of Spain’s matches [should they qualify for the tournament] could be played at San Mames.


“The RFEF have presented four candidates and they have until April 24, 2014 for a final proposal, then UEFA will communicate the decision on September 25. Any of the four will be fantastic.”

UEFA President Michel Platini visited Athletic’s San Mames today with RFEF chief Angel Maria Villar.
