Spanish superclub Real Madrid opened its youth training camp in Jerusalem on Monday, welcoming teenage soccer players from Israel, Morocco, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority.

The children of personnel at foreign missions in Israel will also participate.

The third edition of the training clinic, held at the initiative of Israel’s Ministry of Regional Cooperation, will allow more than 450 children to benefit from the advanced training methods of one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world while at the same time helping to connect cultures and nations.

The camp will be held at the training grounds in Jerusalem’s Katmonim and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhoods and will run through August 18. The focus will be on developing skills and playing abilities, alongside the implementation of advanced training methods to stimulate and motivate the children, instilling common values and forming and creating a common language through sports.

This year too, Real Madrid’s people will follow the outstanding talents, who may get an opportunity to continue developing within the club’s training infrastructure.
