Your happy faces and those of your families are testimony to your loyalty to this crest and these colours. For more than 50 years you have been the heart of our team, in victory and defeat.

"I am 84 years old.  I have been coming here to Mestalla all my life. I've been enjoying the event, Sempere has given me the insignia and I've remembered many things about him. It was simply to enjoy that moment. Valencia CF is a sentiment," described Ricardo Perelló, a season ticket holder with more than 50 years of uninterrupted seniority.
