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.
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 has a building consisting 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. Within the specific training sessions that S.L. Benfica will provide, you will be able to develop your technical, tactical, physical and psychological skills.
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 2017, S.L Benfica placed first in Primeira Liga, Portuguese Cup, and Supercup. With 2017’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.
