Armband for SD Amorebieta vs SD Huesca

Next weekend, SD Huesca visits Amorebieta, the town of one of the best youth teams in Spain: Lezama.

Below you may find all the design of our armband, as well as all the details related to our rival.

Andrés Espinosa, a pioneer in mountaineering

Andrés Espinosa is one of the illustrious sons of Amorebieta. He was a pioneer in mountain climbing and a hardened mountaineer. In 1929, he was the first man to climb Mont Blanc on his own at a time when nobody had climbed 3,800 m in a day. He also scaled Kilimanjaro alone in 1930. The red line depicted in the armband refers to the path in his honour in his home town, Amorebieta. Throughout his life, he socialised with Miguel de Unamuno and Pío Baroja.

Out of interest, he climbed Mont Blanc wearing espadrilles and scaled Naranjo de Bulnes barefoot.

Enrike Rentería, emotional colour and landscape

Enrike Rentería is another illustrious son of Amorebieta. He was a painter that illustrated the landscapes and buildings of his home town in his canvas, by using short brushstrokes and a wide variety of colours. Hence the colourful characteristic lines in the map. By way of anecdote, one of his discoverers and promoters was a football player, the captain of Athletic Club back then: Luis Iceta, an ancestor of the current Spanish Minister of Culture, Miquel Iceta.

The pride of Amorebieta

Carmelo Cedrún, ‘the pride of Amorebieta’, was the keeper of Atheltic Club for 14 seasons, as well as the father of the famous keeper of Real Zaragoza Andoni Cedrún. After Athletic, he played for Espanyol during the following three seasons. He was one of the first Spaniards who decided to play abroad, ending his career in the US, where he joined Baltimore Bays. His outstretched figure can be seen in our design, as if it were part of the map.
