Description

Sociedad Deportiva Eibar is the Basque side from a town one-third the size of the Camp Nou, but with as much passion for football as anywhere in the world. The amazing Cinderella story of La Liga's smallest club, which has seen Barcelona and Real Madrid playing top-tier football at Ipurua, the 5000-capacity stadium that Eibar calls home.
