14 countries in Europe hosted Foundation activities.
The Real Madrid Foundation's education in values through sport reached almost 9,000 children last season through 20 permanent social sporting schools in nine countries (Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom, Romania, Russia and Ukraine) and 136 clinics in five others (Germany, France, Austria, Belgium and Sweden).

Thanks to the backing of a number of different organisations such as Epicenter for children, UEFA Foundation, Endesa, El Corte Inglés and Adidas, amongst others, the Real Madrid Foundation's educational philosophy, "For a Real Education: Values and Sport", was able to overcome the difficulties posed by the pandemic, even increasing the number of permanent projects, opening two new social sports schools in Ukraine and holding more than 130 clinics in other European countries.

The socio-economic impact of the pandemic upon communities already in precarious situations has created more inequalities and has had repercussions on the schools' activities, increasing the need for basic aid and leading to the necessary adaptation and transformation of the sessions into digital content and training on a temporary basis, alongside the local social partners who put the activities into practice after having been trained by the Foundation.
