real madrid foundation select program

one of the greatest soccer teams in the world

generation adidas international is proud to offer top tier adidas youth clubs in the U.S. an exclusive soccer experience in Spain through its partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation. This invitation only program offers elite training and competition and provides unique insight into the youth development approach of the worldʼs most famous soccer clubs.

Selected players will train with qualified and experienced professional 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 world’s most passionate soccer countries!

In addition, during the stay selected players will have the unique opportunity to tour the inside of Real Madrid’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.

 

 

2018 will feature two squads composed of 16 players. This year, Real Madrid Foundation Select will be hosting players born in 2001 or 2002.
In conjunction with adidas America, the landed package cost will be covered for selected players (directors, please discuss with your adidas representative or generation adidas international representative for further details). A full training kit plus footwear and additional adidas swag will be presented to each participant.

As a premier pillar of the generation adidas platform, the top adidas clubs nationwide have the exclusive opportunity to nominate players for the Real Madrid Foundation Select and other Select programs. The process for this is as follows:

  • Premier adidas clubs will have the opportunity to nominate one player in either the ‘01 or ‘02 age group for the Real Madrid Foundation Select Program
  • Nominees will be selected based on positional needs and qualification
  • Upon arrival, players will be split in to two teams for competition (some players will flex between the two squads), but will train together
  • All players selected will receive their training kit, including footwear, and will only have to cover the cost of their flight and match tickets

Excellent experience for the kids, they have a small taste of what real professional life. They have have the chance to be seen by important coaches and scouts. The competition is the highest level. 9 days of 2 sessions a day in the Real Madrid complex with Real Madrid coaches, and 4 competitions against high level teams. The Real Madrid coaches and directors are highly impressed with the group. The idea is to bring the guys here and help them get to the next level.

Luis Mendoza Technical Director - Realmadrid Foundation Select

Its been great. It all soccer. We train twice a day. We are in the best soccer places in the world. I think there is a lot we can bring back to our teams back home, that’s the main thing just the culture and style of play. Its good to play international games against kids our own age because it shows how you compare to them. The facilities are unbelievable, its one of the best clubs in the world, they have amazing fields, staff and players. Its incredible to me.
