Ecuadorian soccer team signs 102-year-old woman

Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

Barcelona SC is making a splash.

The Ecuadorian soccer club has signed Maria Guadalupe, a 102-year-old woman who claims to have been a fan of the team for 91 years. Barcelona brought Guadalupe in for some training, and she worked on some passing drills while still using her walker. 


She even got her own uniform.

It’s a little unclear what Guadalupe brings to the team on the pitch, but rumor has it she cleans up during Bridge night on road trips and she knit her own uniform.
