Real Madrid to develop Dominican football players
Dominicans of all income levels will soon be able to receive professional training from some of the best football coaches in the world. La Escuela de Tecnificacion de Futbol, a Real Madrid football training school, will begin operations in January 2015 with football training for children between the ages of 7 and 17.
Grupo CCN announced its partnership with the Fundacion Real Madrid whereby Supermercados Nacional would help fund coaching.
CCN president Jose Miguel Gonzalez Cuadra announced that the partnership’s purpose was to back the future stars of football from the Dominican Republic. He said it is part of the company’s commitment to initiatives that bring better quality of life to Dominicans.
“For us it is important as a business group to back an entity that in addition to training in sports, provides academic support and education in values,” he said, adding that the integrated education plans would contribute to keeping young people on a good path.
Another leading Dominican business group, Rica, says it will also be sponsoring the new football training center.
Carmelo Zubiaur Sanz, president of the Fundacion Armid and member of the Real Madrid Football Club said that the school would operate according to the philosophy of the Real Madrid Club de Futbol and apply the most modern methods and techniques for integrated training of young athletes.
The Real Madrid football club is deemed to be the world’s richest football club in terms of revenue, according to Wikipedia.
