RIP – FELIX PEREZ ALVAREZ


EXPIRED: 10/ 22/09 – Felix Perez Alvarez, 99, was a fan of Real Madrid’s soccer team. Actually he was their biggest fan – and their oldest fan – AND their longest-serving fan, too!

Alvarez started supporting the professional football club based in Madrid in 1923 and remained a paying member for the next 86 years.

During that time, Alvarez watched Madrid win 31 league titles and nine European Cups.

Known as the team’s “No. 1 fan,” he was honored by the club several times, most recently in 1992.

Real Madrid will wear black armbands on 10/25 to honor Alvarez during its match against Sporting Gijon.
