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

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.
