Denon Athletic was registered in 2019 in the Registry of Associations of the Basque Government and months later received the placet as an official supporters club.

It is the first Peña founded and operative formed by people with functional diversity in a LaLiga team. It was born with a couple of essential objectives: the one that is supposed to every rock that arises with the intention of supporting, encouraging and helping Athletic; and above all, the one that seeks to promote and enhance the inclusion of people with functional diversity in all areas of the Club, from the stands to its organization.
