Enrique Collar will be the image of the membership card for the 23/24 season

The Atlético de Madrid's membership card for next season will have the image of this great Red & White legend, following the line of previous campaigns in which the figures of José Eulogio Gárate, Luis Aragonés, Adelardo Rodríguez and Paulo Futre were extolled.

The membership card for the 2023/24 season will pay tribute to our legend Enrique Collar, the player who has worn the captain's armband for the most seasons, a total of ten. The club, which year after year continues to honour the greatest figures of the Red & White history, has considered on this occasion that Collar deserved to be the legend chosen to wear on the card.

Born on 2 November 1934 in San Juan de Aznalfarache (Seville), Enrique Collar is the fourth player who has worn the Red & White jersey the most times in an official match (470), as well as our ninth top scorer of all time (105 goals).

After kicking a ball for the first time at Imperial CF in his homeland and later, in Madrid, at Peña Noria, he joined the Red & White youth teams, where, including a brief loan spell at Cadiz, he trained until his debut with the first team on 13 September 1953, on the first day of the league championship.

After fifteen consecutive seasons at our club, he won one league (1965/66), three Cups (1959/60, 1960/61, 1964/65) and one European Cup Winners' Cup (1961/62). All these trophies he won as captain of the team, a role he played from 1959 to 1969. He wore the armband for ten seasons, more than any other player in the history, and with it he played a leading role in iconic moments such as the winning of our first continental title, the farewell to the Metropolitano Stadium and the inauguration of the Manzanares Stadium.

He was capped 16 times by Spain and played in the 1962 World Cup in Chile, on his return he lifted the European Cup Winners' Cup at the Neckarstadion in Stuttgart, where we defeated Fiorentina 3-0 in the play-off for the final on 5 September 1962.

After his time as an Atlético de Madrid player, and after a season at Valencia, Collar hung up his boots in 1970 and two years later received a well-deserved tribute at the Vicente Calderón.

In this way, our history continues to be very present in our memory and in our stadium, with continuous references to the players who forged it, such as the Paseo de los Jugadores Centenarios, the changing room area, the player’s access to the stadium, the banners that surround it, the main avenue named after Luis Aragonés and, also, the Red & White membership card, which serves as a tribute to our great legends.
