A tree has become an official member of Resistencia, a football club based in Asuncion, during a ceremony which took place in the club's stadium, Sunday. The Lapacho, also know as a pink trumpet tree, grew in the stands behind one of the goals and Resistencia's club president decided it was time to honour the tree just as the club turns 100 years old. «This afternoon we are going to be giving... Еще a membership card to our tree, it is going to be one more club member for us, and probably the most faithful one because it's here 24 hours a day,» said Roberto Garcete. Fans presented the tree with its own club membership card and a club shirt. It also took the time to promote reforestation in Paraguay since the leafy tree provides shade for fans during soaring temperatures.
