It has been a tough, complicated season, with a sudden change of focus hard to comprehend. In that struggle to accept with determination a different challenge emerged the force of the fans. Celtismo, far from discouragement or criticism, led the way with enthusiasm. Far from surrender or hesitation, it flooded the team with a powerful and invigorating energy. Without their faith and drive, the outcome would have been different. Without their devotion and encouragement, ‘A Nosa Reconquista’ would not have been possible.
The team’ s welcomings have left us with awe-inspiring and unforgettable images, a type of images that are usually linked to celebrations, successes and festivities. Here they were different, they were images of passion, of commitment, of unconditional support in the face of a challenge of the utmost difficulty that no one had thought of months ago.
The sounds of ABANCA Balaídos during the matches will also remain in our memory. From the passion with which the anthem is sung to the relentless breath that led to epic comebacks and decisive victories.
The best fans in Spain deserve a First Division team. RC Celta will face in a few months its eighth consecutive season in the top category. This success has a name: Celtismo.
