More about 'Los Suecos - IN SPANISH

Our club was founded in Madrid, in May 1975, by four Swedish aficionados who had run, coincidentally, into each other during that year´s Feria de San Isidro. They where encouraged by - among others - the well known president of the Peña El 7 Don Tomás Martín "Thomas"(Q. E. P. D.) from Madrid.

Today our club has become the oldest taurine club of all times in Sweden, and the most numerous, with 90 members. The major part of the members reside in Sweden but we´ve also got members living in Spain, Denmark and the USA.
Over the years Los Suecos has become quite well-known and quite popular in the entire Taurine World, and along the road, quite a few honorory memberships have been awarded, for instance to:

-Don Juan Carlos I, King of Spain
-Don Antonio Ordóñez, (Q. E. P. D.) Matador
-Don Camilo José Cela, Autor and Nobel Prize winner
-Don Francisco Cano, taurine photographer
-Don Francisco Romero López, Curro Romero, Matador
-Don Mario Vargas Llosa, Autor and Nobel Prize winner
-Don AndrésVázquez, Matador
 (See "actividades".)

7 de NOVIEMBRE de 2000 - REVISTA DE ACTUALIDAD TAURINA - Nº 332 FAX Nº: 91 / 523 11 79

La Semana Taurina del 30 de Octubre al 5 de Noviembre

POR ESTRELLA ALVAREZ

De peña en peña

Peña "Los Suecos", de Suecia

Presidente: Lars O  Swärd
Vicepresidente: Claes Karlzén.
Secretario: Arne Ericsson
"Gallito"
Tesorero: Lars Abrahamsson.
Domicilio:
"El Toro Bravo", Drottninggatan 29, 411 14 Göteborg, Suecia.

La actividad y la popularidad de la peña taurina "Los Suecos" es muy grande, por eso, a cualquier ciudad que se viaje durante su feria (tanto en España, como Francia, Portugal o Hispanoamérica), es muy fácil encontrarse con alguno de sus componentes, portando el ya famoso logotipo del toro en el círculo amarillo sobre fondo azul.

Recientemente han celebrado en su sede, en el restaurante "El Toro Bravo", la Asamblea General de Otoño, además de su 25 aniversario, donde se recordó la creación de la peña, en 1975, en Madrid, por cuatro amigos. Uno de sus proyectos es universalizar el mundo del toro, y darse a conocer, mediante una muy lograda página web, obra de Bosse Raunavaara (www.geocities.com/lossuecos/). Poseen varios socios de Honor, entre los que destaca S.M. el Rey D. Juan Carlos, y otorgan premios, tanto a ganaderos como a matadores de toros, como Eduardo Miura, Enrique Ponce o El Juli. "El Cartelito" es el nombre de la revista que editan, cuatro veces al año.
