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. The club has a long-term collaboration agreement with Athletic Club (renewed in 2017 for another four years) 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.
