If any opportunity could go to the stadium Nemesio Camacho El Campin to a match of Independent Santa Fe or if he is a fan of the Bogota red, at some point he may have come across Mrs. Maria Arminda Rojas, or better known as ‘Granny from Santa Fe’.
A short lady, always accompanied by her ‘red’ sweatshirt, her cap, her scarf and always with her family, She was one of the most representative fans of the team, which was known by all those attending El Campín.
She was located in the eastern grandstand, everyone greeted her when they saw her arrive, they also congratulated her and applauded her for her great love and effort towards the team, where she never cared about the result, she was always there.
Pitifully, The morning of January 14 will always be marked for her family and fans from Santa Fe, because at 82 years old, Doña Arminda left this life to go support her beloved team from beyond the grave..

But those who knew her know that she will not be alone, she will be next to ‘Fought’, her husband who accompanied her in thousands of games, but who left with the disappointment of not seeing her champion team in El Campín, something that Arminda was able to do 6 months after the departure of her beloved life partner.
The importance of this great follower was such that the club expressed its most sincere condolences to family and friends through its social networks and it is expected that next Friday in the preview of the game against Equity, a heartfelt tribute is paid to him by the club.
