Very nice brand new facilities definitely family friendly only bad thing is that if you go when there is no game you cannot enter the stadium. Tours are not offered in the 2016-2017 season maybe available next season.

I loved my night at San Mames, Athletic was playing against Las Palmas and we were super lucky because Athletic won 5-1!! This team has some of the best fans, it's so great to part of that at the stadium.

Stadium is designed to enable a good view from any angle. Seating is surprisingly comfortable, mind you steps are pretty steep.

I saw the match recently vs Torino and the atmosphere pulsating around the stadium was electrifying.Firstly, the anthem makes you buzz and whilst they sing you see.

Either if you are in Bilbao go to any Kutxabank ATM and get tickets there or you can get it from their website or any place that sells the tickets. P.S For the third option check it is a reliable website Regards
