San Mamés and Guggenheim Bilbao.

Aliron! – the battle cry of the people of Bilbao, the one that sounds the most when Athletic Club, the football club of Bilbao, wins a title of champion.

It is said that the word “Alirón” comes from the English expression “All Iron”. Apparently, at the end of the 19th century, the mines of Bizkaia were commanded by the British and, whenever they extracted wagons loaded with ore, the phrase “All iron” used to be written on the side of these to define the quality of the mineral, that is, in the case, matter free of impurities. Whenever the Biscayan miners used to see this inscription they shouted “Aliron”, associating it with an exceptional event. Thus, every time their beloved football team, won a title, the fans sang “Alirón, Alirón, Athletic is the champion.” San Mames and Guggenheim Bilbao.
