experience soccer through the spanish soccer federation and real madrid foundation

generation adidas international is proud to offer you an exclusive soccer experience in Spain through its partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation. You will train with qualified and experienced Real Madrid Foundation 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, 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.

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.

During your program in Madrid, you will have the opportunity to stay and train at the Royal Spanish Football Federation Team Complex (*hotel stay subject to availability). In Spanish it is known as the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF).

The complex, aptly named the Ciudad de Fútbol, or City of Football, is home to the Spanish National team.  It is located outside of Madrid in Las Rozas, and is the governing body of soccer in Spain. The Spanish National Team has participated in an impressive 14 World Cups, and will play once more in the 2018 edition. Spain also hosted the World Cup in 1982. The team achieved a national milestone by winning the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

After its impressive 2010 World Cup victory, and then back to back 2008 and 2012 European Championship titles, Spain is the only national team in history to win three major tournaments consecutively. Spain’s National Team includes some of the best players in the World, such as Sergio Ramos, David de Gea and Andres Iniesta.

On behalf of our son Hernan (Nanu) we would like to express our gratitude to you, because you went above and beyond when hurricane Irene caused the cancelation of the flights, keeping our kids from coming back home on time.
