Spain’s oldest football stadium
San Mamés was the oldest football stadium in Spain. In fact, for this reason it was nicknamed by locals as La Catedral, which is a Spanish expression that means The Cathedral. For this reason, during its first years, Athletic’s fans displayed an almost religious devotion when following the matches of their team in this venue. Right now to bet live is easy with 1xBet, and it also features all matches played at the new San Mamés.
The very first match played here took place in August 1913. It was a friendly match between Athletic Bilbao and Racing Club de Irún.
