The commune of the province of Vizcaya is located within the sphere of influence of its large neighbour, Bilbao. When it comes to sport, the locals are particularly proud of their football club, which was founded almost a century ago and climbed into Liga 2 for the 2021-2022 season. The SD Amorebieta produced one of the town’s sporting sons, Camelo Cedrun, who was the goalkeeper for Athletic Bilbao and the national team during the 1950s. The former Euskaltel and Movistar rider Beñat Intxausti is also a native of the city. Amorebieta-Etxano also organises a one-day race, with a roll of honour that features the top names in Spanish cycling, as well as Frenchmen Laurent Jalabert (1995) and, more recently, Jonathan Hivert (2011).
