¡Fuerza Chile!

Spanish team U.D. Almeria had during this week's game against Barcelona (with millions of TV-viewers) the decency to have remove their original sponsor from their kit and place ¡Fuerza Chile! on instead. Despite the fact that they don't have any Chilean players or staff members. According to their homepage, prior to the game, the referees tried to consult the league officials if the team were permitted to play in that shirt. Many games around Europe started with a silent moment for the victims of the Chilean and Haitian earthquake's these previous months. U.D. Almeria's president Alfonso Garcia also claimed that the shirts are also for sale with the proceeds going directly as donations for the victims of the Chilean earthquake.

U.D. Almeria and the city of Almeria is now a personal favorite and deserves a special blogspot despite the fact that they played 2-2 against Barcelona, when Real Madrid is chasing.
