The trip also includes a visit to the vibrant and historic city of Madrid, the Alteltico de Madrid stadium – Wanda Metropolitano’s tour, along with all the different complexes and set-ups of the club where the boys will also get to watch practice sessions and league matches of the Atletico de Madrid Youth Teams.

On the opportunity for the boys on this exposure tour, Head of Youth Development, Carlos Santamarina said, “It’s a very good chance for our boys to work for 20 days with Atletico de Madrid coaches and they can play friendly matches against different Spanish teams.
