As you know this football team was created because of the commercial relations due to the iron that we sent by ship to England. They imported the sport that they played there and that´s why Athletic Club of Bilbao has got a part of its name in English.

And this is why it is the oldest football team in Spain.

Even our typical Aliron! Aliron! Athletic the winner!! comes from English. When the workers in the mines founded iron they knew that they earned much more money and very happily they started shouting : All iron! All iron! , very happily. And this shouting became a way of show happiness at different events.
