Sebas, our Atletico Nacional host

Our host par excellence of Atletico Nacional attended the Atanasio Girardot stadium for the first time in 1999, in the championship final between Atletico Nacional and América de Cali on December 16 of that year. That day, when Atletico Nacional was crowned the league champion, was enshrined one of the most faithful and exemplary fans of green and white team. We talked about Sebas, a member of Rey de Copas for almost 20 years and a member of the Atletico Nacional fan club known as “Los del Sur”. He is currently also the leader of one of the most representative combos of the fan club.

Feeling part of "Los del Sur" helped him a lot to overcome the precarious conditions in which he and his family lived due to the war conflict between the government and the armed groups. So much so, that today Sebas is a social actor in his commune (Comuna 13), the most hit during the war.

Sebas contributes with his social work, helping to take out young people from the streets to change the course towards a better life, so that they do not have to pass what he and many other young people had to suffer.

As he tells us, the legacy he leaves to his two children is the values of Atletico Nacional, the endurance for his beloved team, encouraging throughout the game and feeling part of a group that opened him the doors and changed his life.

After spending a couple of hours touring the commune 13, Sebas will take you to one of the restaurants in the commune to taste the typical food of Medellín, such as bandeja paisa, fríjoles antioqueños, sancocho antioqueñosopa de mondongo antioqueño or chorizo and roasted meats.

Once you have been able to delight yourself with the best local food, we continue on towards Atanasio Girardot Stadium, the home of Atletico Nacional. During the trip to the stadium and as you approach the venue, you can feel the incredible atmosphere that is breathed with the songs along with other fans. Upon arrival at the stadium, Sebas will take photos with the majestic stadium in the background and then enter the field together. The Atletico Nacional tickets of our host are located on the first level of one of the shortsides, just behind the goals. That is the area where fans really give it their all and where you can see first hand how Atletico Nacional match is lived with local fans.
