There are no reactions yet. Be the first!
Mr Luis Álvarez Fernández, our season-ticket holder number 1, has passed away in the last few hours. He was an example of strength, humour, simplicity, closeness, loyalty, and unbreakable Oviedismo.
Luis Álvarez has been a club season-ticket holder since 4th January 1940. He joined us at the Carlos Tartiere just a few months ago, when he starred in one of the moving conversations we held to mark the club's 95th anniversary. His memories, his Oviedismo, and his love for the club he spent his whole life following was reflected in every one of his actions and words. He was also a very endearing person.
In addition, a few months beforehand and because of the pandemic, Luis welcomed Manuel Paredes, César Martín and Miguel Sanz to his home, where they presented him with his 2020-21 season-ticket pass. He renewed once again for the current season, and his season pass was the first one emitted at the start of this campaign.
A few months, Luis enjoyed another pleasant experience. For one of his final trips to the Carlos Tartiere, he was collected at the door of his home by the official team bus, which took him to the stadium.
We would like to send our deepest sympathies and love to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Luis. THANK YOU for being an honour to this feeling of Oviedismo.
