From 2019, VCF will honour supporters who have been members for over 50 years upon their passing
Starting with the first LaLiga game at Mestalla in 2019, Valencia CF will introduce a new protocol to acknowledge the club's most loyal fans: Those who have spent more than 50 consecutive years as season ticket holders.
Since 2016, supporters reaching half a century watching games at Mestalla have received an annual homage with the presentation of a special insignia. Now, upon their passing, these dedicated fans will be given the respectful send-off that they deserve.
Before the game against Real Valladolid, Francisco Valls Gil -season ticket holder number 3, who passed away over the past few weeks- will be given a minute's silence. These moments of reflection will take place before the first league match of each month, paying tribute to those long-term season ticket holders who have departed during the previous month.
