Over a hundred children from around ten countries will be able to enjoy the experience at Real Madrid City.

A group of 134 boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 16 from IES-SEK schools in Ecuador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Guatemala, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States, Dominican Republic, Paraguay and Chile will take part in a Real Madrid Foundation week-long clinic. The Foundation's assistant general manager, Iker Casillas, welcomed them to the Real Madrid City training grounds.
Five training sessions will be held at Real Madrid City between 28 April and 2 May, along with a small tournament among the six different groups. These clinics are an educational experience that combines the teaching methodology based on values during the Foundation's sessions with the technical and tactical fundamentals of Real Madrid's youth academy.
