There will also be a donation of various examples of this volume to the City Council so that all citizens can consult it in the public library and municipal archive. The visit will be open to all the children wanting to come, who will be able to see their idols Ion Ansotegi and Asier Riesgo up close. The Eibar City Council will raffle ten of the armero first team shirts from amongst all those people who take a book out on loan from the library from today until Thursday.

Furthermore, on Saturday 23rd at midday, El Corte Inglés will host a presentation of the 75th Anniversary book led by another two players in the bookstore section (third floor).  On this day only, those people assisting will have the chance to purchase a copy of the book with a 10% discount, in addition to having it signed by the players Kike García and Jaime Jiménez.
