Goikoetxea have raised the Athletic flag in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento to replace the banner of the capital of Biscay and in the afternoon the club has launched an initiative to decorate all the balconies of Bizkaia with rojiblanco between now and April 3, the day on which the most important derby in history is played.
“In other circumstances, Seville would be a party, with the entire athleticzale family wasting joy, pride and passion, but the severity of the pandemic forces us to be responsible and to live the two historic finals from our homes. Therefore, it is time to re-decorate our balconies with the red and white colors. Let everyone know that our lions will not be alone in Seville! ”, Says the Ibaigane entity in the statement.
To do this, it has promoted a contest in which anyone from anywhere in the world can participate. To participate, you will have to share a photo with flags, scarves or other zurigorris objects on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #BalconesZurigorris (also with #BalkoiZurigorriak in Basque) until Saturday, April 3. If these accounts are not available on social networks, they can be sent by mail to the address email@example.com.
The club will award the winners with two jerseys like those worn by the rojiblancos players in the final. In addition, there will be a special prize for the most striking balcony, with a T-shirt from the clash for the title signed by all the footballers.
