Chantrea (also sometimes known with the Basque spelling Txantrea) is the representative team for the neighbourhood of the same name, a working-class area with a strong sense of community identity, built in the 1950s to provide housing for immigrants from rural areas of Navarre.[1] The club has a long-term collaboration agreement with Athletic Club[2][3] (renewed in 2017 for another four years)[4] which has seen several promising players move to the Bilbao team. Recent graduates include Borja Ekiza, Iñigo Pérez, Mikel San José, Gorka Iraizoz and Iker Muniain, all of whom played a role in their run to the 2012 UEFA Europa League Final.[5]
