The Lions have so far accumulated a total of 37 League and Cup trophies.

Nearly 650 players have been part of the red & white first team throughout its history. The five players with the most appearances in the Zurigorri shirt are Iribar, Muniain, Rojo I, De Marcos and Etxeberria.

In its more than 125 years of history, Athletic Club has played more than 4,100 official matches, and almost 6,000 if you add friendly matches to all of these.

The Zurigorri team has scored more than 7,300 official goals, which is more than 12,000 if you also take into account those friendly matches.

The three biggest wins scored so far are a 12-0 win over Sestao River (1923-24 season, Regional Championship), a 12-0 win over Irun Sporting (1913-14 season, Regional Championship) and a 12-1 win over FC Barcelona (1930-31, LaLiga).

The top scorer of the red & white team is Telmo Zarra, one of the best strikers of all time and an example of sportsmanship, who scored a total of 335 goals in the 16 seasons in which he played for Athletic Club.

Athletic Club’s first coach was Mr. Shepherd. The first to surpass one hundred games was the unforgettable Frederick Pentland, with 178. And the one with the most games, Ernesto Valverde, who is close to reaching 400 (397 at the end of the 2023-2024 season).


Recently, Unai Simón won the Zamora Trophy. However, the first Lions goalkeeper to win this award was Goyo Blasco who, in fact, won it three times.

Blasco is, together with his teammates in the 1930s GuillermoGorostiza, JoséLuisIspizua and RobertoEtxebarria, the Zurigorri player with the most titles to his credit, 15 (4 leagues, 4 cups and 7 regional championships). However, it is also the legendary Gainza who leads the ranking of titles thanks to having won 7 Cups, 2 Leagues and 1 Eva Duarte Cup.

The Lions have 8 league championships to their name. The first of these was achieved in the 1929-30 season, where they did not lose a single match. The first of the 25 Cups was won more than a century ago, in the 1901-1902 season, when the red & white team beat FC Barcelona 2-1.
