RFEF coaching course program

Get coached by World Cup winners!

The Spanish National Team has participated in 13 editions of the World Cup, and hosted the 1982 edition. The best result obtained in this competition is the title of World Champions; a National milestone achieved in South Africa ́s 2010 World Cup.

Spain has also participated in 9 editions of the European Championship, with an outstanding performance for the first time on 1964; being proclaimed European Champions by defeating the Soviet Union in the final.
The Spanish national team is currently ranked number 1 in the FIFA World Ranking after impressive 2010 World Cup and back to back 2008 and 2012 European Championship titles.

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.
