Teams, tales and tips – a guide to the local game

Close to the French border, San Sebastián, Donostia to proud Basque-speaking locals, is a gracious seaside resort and contemporary gastronomic mecca where royals and high society mingled a century ago. Support for flagship club Real Sociedad isn’t quite as feverish as at rivals Bilbao, and the stadium isn’t as cherished (nor as centrally located).

Twice Spanish champions in the early 1980s, Real Sociedad have been regular European competitors since the club’s surprise top-four finish in 2013.  An emotional win over Bilbao in the Spanish Cup final of 2020, played in an empty stadium in 2021, resulted in the first major silverware for the Txuri-Urdin since 1987.

Since 2019, the likes of Manchester United, Napoli and PSV Eindhoven have strode out at a completely rebuilt Anoeta Stadium, which now goes by its sponsor’s name of the Reale Arena. Lower rows of seating occupy the gap where the running track once was, and a former functional and multi-functional resource is now fully focused on football.
