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.

For the second half, you will have the opportunity to combine soccer, culture, and fun in one of Spain’s most spectacular coastal cities – Valencia. Valencia C.F. has been best known in recent years for its youth development philosophy and Academy, having produced players like David Silva, Isco, Jordi Alba and Juan Bernat.
