This  is an exclusive chance to live “fútbol” in one of the worldʼs most  passionate soccer countries!

In this first half of the trip you will train with qualified and experienced Real Madrid Foundation coaches, selected by the Real Madrid C.F. Academy director. In addition, during your stay you will have the unique opportunity to tour the inside of Real Madrid C.F.’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and its museum for a look back through soccer history, as well as to visit the official Real Madrid C.F. adidas megastore.

Real Madrid C.F., or ‘Los Blancos’ as they are affectionately called by Madridistas, was founded in 1902. One of the most successful clubs in history, Real Madrid C.F. has won 33 La Liga titles and a record 12 UEFA Champions League titles. The club is famous for both its rich tradition and also its talented roster, including names like Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Toni Kroos.

The Real Madrid Foundation is the instrument by which Real Madrid is present in society and develops its social and cultural awareness programs. Its main objective is to promote, both in Spain as well as abroad, the values inherent in sport.

The Real Sociedad Academy trains at the Real Sociedad Zubieta training complex in the north of Spain on the Basque coast. Like other Spanish clubs, Real Sociedad places great emphasis on its Academy system, and developing and promoting homegrown players.

Until the late 1980s, in fact, the club only recruited Basque talent to the club, and even today it largely focuses its recruitment efforts on local and regional Gipuzkoa clubs. Of European clubs, the Real Sociedad first team has one of the highest percentages of homegrown players.
Real Sociedad de Fútbol, or ‘La Real’, is based in beautiful and charming San Sebastian in the Basque Country in the north of Spain.
The club was one of the founding members of La Liga during its initation in 1928. Since that time, the club has won two La Liga titles and also two Copa del Rey titles.

One of Real Sociedad’s biggest rivalries is the ‘Basque Derby’, played against fellow Basque team Athletic Bilbao.

Having the girls meeting the Real Madrid players was an unforgettable experience for them. Also training and staying at the top class facilities of the City of Futbol gave us the opportunity to really prepare for the season
