Real Madrid’s Institutional Relations director traveled to Cairo together with an international delegation from the Real Madrid Foundation for the official inauguration of the training schools, which the Real Madrid Foundation is developing in Cairo in collaboration with Fame Academies, and the official presentation of the four new social-sports schools in Egypt, which will be starting up thanks to the training schools' financing. The four new social-sports schools will be located in the cities of Balaysia, Manshiet-Dahshour, Giza, and Damanhour. A total of 1,200 children and adolescents will participate in the social and sports activities based on universal sports values, with the collaboration of the NGO Plan International.
During the presentation, Emilio Butragueño thanked the Fame Academies for their great support and said: “We are sure that solidarity is a powerful tool to combat social injustice.” The inauguration culminated with an exhibition game in which the white club’s Institutional Relations director participated along with the students of the Fame Academies and the boys and girls who will participate in the future social-sports schools, together with Plan International.
