Under the agreement, clinics will take place for the first time in the Kazakh city of Aktau with more than a hundred children benefiting. The project will run for two weeks, from 9 to 20 August, with the objective of delivering the Real Madrid Foundation's methodology for education in values through sport and the high-performance clinic experience. Be Free Football is an established partner of the Foundation and will organise clinics this summer in the Mediterranean region, in countries already confirmed such as Turkey, among others, so that over 1,500 boys and girls can enjoy an exclusive experience during their holidays.

Arbeloa: “The social sports programmes change children's lives in many ways through sport”.

During the event, Alvaro Arbeloa explained: "These activities help the sustainability of social sports programmes that change children's lives in many ways through sport". Makhmut Zharimbetov explained: "We urge all children to enjoy and learn from this experience, no matter what level they are at".
The clinics are aimed at girls and boys from 6 to 16 years old and will be held on the football pitch at the Rixos Hotel in one and a half hour sessions. A protocol will be in place to guarantee the health and safety of all participants, including the changing of masks and the disinfection of shoes and equipment used during the training sessions, which will be held in small groups and with safe social distances and in open spaces.
