By Community | April 23, 2019

Athletic Club has introduced the ‘Rail Seat’ system in its famous stadium in Bilbao to improve the fan experience and increase safety.

Fans who would have stood anyway now have more space and aren’t blocking the view of those behind.

Athletic Club’s San Mamés is one of the newest stadiums in LaLiga but retains an atmosphere that reflects the club’s 120 years of history.
