generation adidas international is proud to offer you an exclusive soccer experience in Spain and Portugal through its partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation and S.L. Benfica. You will train with qualified and experienced Real Madrid Foundation and S.L. Benfica coaches, selected by the Real Madrid C.F. Academy director. This experience takes place at Real Madrid City’s state of the art training facilities for the first half of the trip, and provides an inside look at the daily life of an Academy player. This is an exclusive chance to live “fútbol” in one of the worldʼs most passionate soccer countries! 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.
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.
Sport Lisboa e Benfica has known to be attentive to the signs of time, always looking to improve their training methods. As a result, in 2015, S.L. Benfica received the Globe Soccer award for Best Academy of the year.
Caixa Futebol Campus is the training center of S.L. Benfica. The complex consists of a hotel, two gyms, dressing rooms, swimming pools, jacuzzis, a sauna, a cafeteria and an auditorium.
The methodology applied during training is the same as S.L. Benfica uses to train its athletes and to guarantee the sustainability of its professional squads. The Academy results of this methodology have once more been shown in the UEFA Youth Champions League, reaching 2 finals in the 4 editions of this competition.
In the most recent season, S.L Benfica placed first in Primeira Liga, Portuguese Cup, and Supercup. With this season’s league title, the club has reached its first ever Tetra, or four league titles in a row. The club is very proud to have accomplished these results while promoting players from within their own Academy. The club is a complete success on and off the field, having produced sales of over 200 million in the past years.
Roundtrip airfare is not included, but will be sourced for the group.
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 seasonMatt Yelton
