The Real Madrid Foundation is launching their first ever football campus in Lahore. The initiative aims to help Pakistanis polish their footballing game.
“I am happy that Football is getting a place in Pakistan, and Real Madrid is helping"
While Pakistan’s position in world football remains unchanged, the distinguished and reputable Spanish football club, Real Madrid, is set to host a five-day football camp in Lahore.
The Real Madrid Foundation is offering a Campus Experience between 27th and 31st December 2016. Its purpose is to encourage football activities across Pakistan, where cricket already sparkles with incredible talent.
Trainers and coaches from Real Madrid Foundation will travel to Lahore from Spain to run the exclusive camp.
The expertise behind the campus is Joaquin Sagues, the Foundation’s Director. He strongly believes that this campus will be a successful movement, bringing out the hidden talent of Pakistan. He further adds:
“We are very proud to be able to bring Real Madrid Values closer to all Pakistani children. We are convinced that this first edition of Campus Experience in Lahore will be a roaring success.”
QSports, a Qatar-based sports management firm will officially host the Real Madrid Foundation campus, in collaboration with Checkmate Consultancy and Green Peak International as the event management.
Moreover, Media partners for the event will include, Jang, The News and Geo Super, as well as, Radio partner CityFM89.
Alongside sharing football methodology, the campus will serve to express the value and meaning of football in the Spanish culture. It will encourage players to apply Real Madrid principles as an academic mechanism in their far-reaching development.
At the same time, the campus will create an inspiring dialogue between sports and culture. Participants will learn on a diverse platform, which will, in turn, demonstrate a conversation of effective teamwork between Spain and Pakistan.
For the campus, participants will be given physical activities, along with educational learning. The educational programme will instruct children on teamwork, leadership, respect for others, autonomy and hard work.
Above all, children will be provided with official Real Madrid Foundation branded football kits,with official photo and a diploma.
Many Pakistanis have welcomed the Foundation’s Campus Experience with great joy. Celebrating the opportunity for their hidden football champions to train from the standards and principles of the outstanding football club.
Some football fans even shared their reactions on Facebook:
“Thank you, Real Madrid, for visiting Pakistan, there is an enormous talent waiting for grooming,” says Shahzad Hassan.
“I am really happy that Football is getting a place in Pakistan, and Real Madrid is helping us in that. Thank you, RMA.
“Please just bring this to Karachi as well. We Karachi fans are waiting anxiously. Die hard Madridista here,” passionately expresses Dua Fatima Nafees.
The Campus Facebook, Pakistan, has also perfectly put it: “A brand new goal.”
“The ball is rolling your way.”
Offering this unique football movement, Real Madrid has given the Lahori’s an exceptional opportunity to combine sports with learning. To be a part of representing and increasing the sporting football activity in Pakistan.
