It comes to Liangshan Prefecture in Sichuan Province together with Nimu Sports.
The annual Real Madrid Foundation Football Programme touches down in Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province (China), alongside Nimu Sports, the local operator in the province. The project was launched on November 28 and will take the Foundation's methodology to Xichang, the capital of the prefecture, as well as to different rural areas.

After months of preparation, the project kicked off this week in the Zhaojue County. Last week, the project's sports team travelled to prepare the training schedule and deliver materials and kits to all the children who will take part in the program throughout the campaign. Zhaojue County is the first county in the prefecture where the programme will take place, and Puge, Huitong and YanYuan counties will follow suit in the coming months. In these counties, players are given scholarships by the local authorities, giving them the opportunity to bring the Foundation's training methodology and values to as many participants as possible.

The project is run with the Annual Football Programme in Xichang, which will start in September with two venues at Beijing Foreign Languages and Sunshine School. To publicise the programme, a presentation clinic will be held on 14 June at the municipal football stadium, where nearly 200 players and families will take part. The team of Spanish coaches leading the project will train with them on this celebratory occasion.
