Armband for CF Fuenlabrada vs SD Huesca
SD Huesca take on CF Fuenlabrada at Fernando Torres Stadium in the Sunday lunchtime kick-off (10th April, 14:00 CEST). Matchday 35 of the competition meets the Oscenses and the Madrilenian side, with the latter currently sitting in relegation zone.
At the bottom of the armband, we have depicted the colours of Fuenlabrada’s away and third kit this season. Although these colours are unusual for the Madrilenian side, this campaign they have paid tribute to the teams that gave birth to the current ‘Fuenla’ (founded in 1975): CD San Esteban, in white and orange, and AD Fuenlabrada, in black and white. This tribute by ‘Fuenla’ to its origins has been taken as a graphic inspiration – by the way, both kits are made with recycled materials.
If we look up in the design, we can see a pattern on a green background, which illustrates two of the most well-known fountains in Fuenlabrada: Fuente de los Cuatro Caños and Fuente del Botón. Of course, we can’t forget that the name ‘Fuenlabrada’ comes from the ancient ‘Fuente Labrada.’
Fuenlabrada’s greatest idol
ernando José Torres Sanz, also known as ‘The Kid’ Torres, is a Fuenlabrada native, and is considered as a reference in this southern area of Madrid. People in Fuenlabrada are so fond of the forward that he has been awarded with the “Ciudad de Fuenlabrada” medal for his “sporting and personal values, as well as his career, his commitment and his loyalty to the town.” Besides, ‘Fuenla’ have named their own stadium after the legendary Atletico player’s name: ‘Fernando Torres.’ In the armband, you can also see his most iconic goal celebrations – such as his UEFA Euro 2008 final strike against Germany. Finally, several towers are coloured according to the teams that made an impact on his career.
In addition, another symbol the armband features is Kiriko the rooster – the mascot of this modest Madrilenian club – who livens up both the squad and the crowd in Fernando Torres stadium. This rooster celebrates his team’s goals with the players, and some of them have been even close to being sent off. Anyway, we definitely stick with our charismatic Dragonés…
Clearly, it will be a game between two sides in need of points for very different reasons: one to avoid relegation and the other one to fight the promotion play-off battle.
C’mon Huesca! Fieles siempre, sin reblar!
