While their Catalan namesakes are probably better known, Ecuadorian side Barcelona Sporting Club can call on the support of an incredibly loyal fan.
The lady in question is 102-year-old super fan Maria Guadalupe and she has followed the team through thick and thin since 1925 -- the year the club was first formed.
As a token of esteem for her many decades of unwavering support, Barca invited her along for a special VIP tour.
As well as taking part in a training session with a few of the players, Maria was also presented with a special personalised jersey which she duly sported with pride.

Early reports that Maria has successfully managed to bag herself a place on the bench for Barca's next league game are yet to be verified.
