Football and basketball for 150 children through the collaboration with MGC Soccer Central.
To coincide with the Olympic Games, the Real Madrid Foundation held its first basketball clinic in Athens. This is the first basketball clinic to be held in Greece since the partnership with MGC Soccer Central began in the 2018/19 season with football clinics being held at the same time in Thessaloniki and Nafplio.
A new football clinic will take place in Athens from 27-30 August for more than fifty children who have already taken up the sport, following this successful week with more than 150 children taking part. Another similar clinic will take place in September in the city of Santorini.

The football technical development and basketball with values experiences reached out to almost 150 boys and girls, providing them with a unique opportunity to enjoy their summer holidays. Coaches from the Foundation, specially trained in the Foundation's methodology and endorsed by the Real Madrid Sports Department, visited the different cities from Madrid and ran the sessions under the health safety protocol in place in the country.

A visit from a legend
A very special visit was made by one of the legends of Greek basketball to this first basketball clinic. Konstantinos Tsartsaris supported the programme, joining the youngsters during a training session, where he urged them to continue to enjoy the sport.

These sports and educational experiences give more boys and girls the chance to learn more about the Foundation's philosophy and educational methodology, providing them with comprehensive training in values such as respect, motivation, equality, teamwork, healthy habits, self-reliance and commitment to self-esteem, thanks to their favourite sport.
