En portada "DON ALEJANDRO DE LA SOTA, PRESIDENTE DEL ATHLETIC CLUB, DE BILBAO. SAN MAMES AL FONDO, DOS SEMANAS DESPUÉS DE SER INAUGURADO". 


Alejandro de la Sota Izagirre (born 1881) was a Spanish footballer who played as a forward for Athletic Club. He was one of the most important figures in the early history of Athletic, having been one of its co-founders in 1901, as well as a team captain, and then serving as the seventh president of the club, ruling from 1911 and 1917, becoming one of the most successful and influential presidents of the Basque club.

Under de la Sota's leadership, Athletic Bilbao achieved its greatest economic and sporting successes, becoming a dominant team on the national level, winning three back-to-back Copa del Rey titles between 1914 and 1916. One of his main achievements was getting the funds for the construction of the San Mamés Stadium, which opened in 1913 and was very important in the club's supremacy in the 1910s.


Born in Cantabria to the most richest and influential family in the Basque Country and all of the Pyrenees – the De la Sota family. He was at the historic meeting in the "García de la Gran Vía" cafe on 5 September 1901, being among the 33 socios (co-founders) of the first-ever club in BilbaoAthletic Club.[2] He was then one of the first football players of the newly created Basque team. Together with Juan AstorquiaArmand Cazeaux and Walter Evans, he was part of the historic Athletic team that won the first-ever Copa del Rey in 1903, in which de la Sota contributed decisively, netting the winning goal in the final in an epic 3–2 comeback victory over Madrid FC. In the 1904 Copa del Rey Final, Athletic were declared winners again after their opponents failed to turn up. He also featured in the 1905 Copa del Rey Final against Madrid FC, which they lost 1–0. Between 1902 and 1905, he played in five competitive matches, in which he scored twice.


The De la Sota Family was the richest on the entire coast of the Bay of Biscay. His family, in addition to amassing wealth, patronized numerous Basque cultural and national organizations, allocating a quarter of their profits to their various ventures. Spanish and other European governments considered them one of the most influential magnates on the Basque region.[citation needed]


After finishing his football career, Alejandro kept devoting himself to his club and become Athletic's 7th president in 1911. Having studied his Basque traditions, Alejandro continued them and embodied them in his club, being directly involved in the creation of the concept of the "cantera", that is, the participation in the team become exclusively for players developed in the sport within Biscay (later extended to the wider Basque Country); the club has followed this tradition of using only local players for more than a hundred years.[citation needed]

Having many acquaintances in the de la Sotaand higher circles of Basque society, Alejandro enlisted their support in terms of building the club: under his rule, the club's socios (members) increased several times. Furthermore, he managed to find funds for the construction of a new stadium in Bilbao, the largest in Spain at that time, which opened in August 1913. San Mamés could seat almost forty thousand people and was renowned for the unique and boisterous atmosphere its crowds of devoted and loyal fans would create on match days. The stadium is regarded as one of the main sources of power that helped the club grow in the 1910s, assembling a great side that had the likes of José María BelausteFélix Zubizarreta and Pichichi, winning three back-to-back Copa del Rey titles between 1914 and 1916, beating the likes of RCD Español and Madrid FC in the latter two by scores of 5–0 and 4–0 respectively.

During the Spanish Civil War, the traces of Alejandro were lost. Given the expropriation of all the assets of the De la Sota family, and the persecution of them by the Spanish government, it is likely that Alejandro died.

Inauguración del campo del Athletic Club: San Mamés "La Catedral"(INAUGURATION OF SAN MAMES STADIUM - "THE CATHEDRAL")

The old San Mamés was an icon of world football, it became an internationally renowned ground that earned its nickname: "The Cathedral". It opened in 1913 and 100 years later, the current stadium was built in the same place. The new stadium embraced the challenge of conveying the old traditions of San Mamés: its atmosphere, its respect and its passion. Not only that, but at the same time, it had to become an accessible, comfortable and marketable stadium suited to modern times.

With a capacity of 53,331 spectators, it was designed according to the highest standards, those which constitute the Elite Category according to UEFA. It won the best building in the ‘Sports’ category at the 2015 edition of the World Architecture Festival and Venue of the Year 2017 at the World Football Summit." (FUENTE: WEB ATHLETIC CLUB)

History

Opened in 1913, until its demolition it was Spain's oldest stadium, a characteristic that gave rise to the nickname La Catedral (The Cathedral), together with its revered status as one of the nation's most important venues, the devotion shown by the team's followers who attended the matches, the site's religious heritage and the fact that the city itself did not have a cathedral for some years afterwards (Santiago Cathedral did not receive the distinction until 1949). 

The first match at the stadium in August 1913 was a friendly between Athletic and Racing Club de Irún in a replay of the 1913 FEF Copa del Rey Final, which was the opening game of a triangular tournament also involving Shepherd's Bush F.C. (London - England). The first goal was scored by the famous striker  "Pichichi". 

A 50th anniversary tournament of the same nature was heid in 1963, with Athletic defeating Fulham and Sporting CP in high-scoring matches.

San Mamés could seat almost forty thousand people and was renowned for the unique and boisterous atmosphere its crowds of devoted and loyal fans would create on match-days.

The stadium was almost entirely rebuilt to host matches in the 1982 FIFA World Cup. Athletic's opponents in friendly matches that year included the national teams of England and Poland, while in 1998 the visitors to San Mamés were World Cup holders Brazil marking Athletic's centenary. Six Spain matches were played at the stadium between 1921 and 1967.In contrast, the unofficial Basque Country team played 26 fixtures of various types at San Mamés between 1915 and 2011, and the Biscay team played there three times. (FUENTE: WIKIPEDIA)
