The Real Madrid Foundation has carried out activities in 80 countries over the course of 2021, serving 62,000 participants in social and sporting education, integration and development cooperation projects. The Real Madrid Foundation helped more than 40,000 girls, boys and young people in social projects outside Spain last season, who received sports education in values, nutritional support, health care and regular training in 72 countries, while taking into account the health restrictions imposed in each country.
185 clinics, campuses and football programmes were run for 9,000 children in 16 countries, as well as 3 types of summer camp in Spain and a clinic at Real Madrid City. Our commitment to digitalisation enabled us to continue training 1,000 coaches, educators and project staff online, through the launch of the omnichannel platform Sports Values Academy TV, using the organisation's unique and pioneering methodology: For a REAL education: Values and sport.
