La Fundación Real Madrid y Liberbank renuevan su convenio de colaboración

Real Madrid Foundation and Liberbank renew collaboration agreement for seventh season

NEWS | 05/10/2018

Both institutions work towards maintaining projects for the integration of groups in socially disadvantaged situations through football.
The Real Madrid Foundation has renewed its collaboration agreement with Liberbank. The ceremony to sign the latest link-up was attended by Enrique Sánchez, the Foundation's executive vice-president; Emilio Butragueño, Real Madrid's director of institutional relations; Ana Echenique, head of institutional relations and communications at Liberbank; and Jonathan de Joaquín, Liberbank's general business strategy manager.
Since the 2012/13 season, Liberbank has played it part in the maintenance of various socio-sporting projects that seek to use football to achieve the integration of groups living in socially disadvantaged situations. Example of such projects include the socio-sporting school in Quinta de Asturias and the socio-sporting programme run in the prisons at Villabona (Oviedo) and Ocaña II (Toledo).

Each year, 2,000 prisoners receive support to assist their future reintegration into society.

This latest agreement sees the Real Madrid Foundation add to the programmes it runs in prisons, with the institution boasting over a decade of experience in leading projects in 23 centres in collaboration with the Secretary General of Prison Institutions. 
The link-up between the Real Madrid Foundation and Liberbank, which was established seven seasons ago, allows children aged between five and 11 to learn positive values through the game, thanks to the socio-sporting football school in Madrid's Quinta de Asturias, with minors at risk from exclusion and in socially disadvantaged situations benefitting from scholarships.
