COACH EDUCATION TOUR - MADRID 2019

An unparalleled insight into the world of Spanish football

Madrid’s football teams are on a roll. In the 2017-2018 season Real Madrid lifted its record-breaking 13th Champions League trophy, and its biggest city rival Atlético de Madrid won its third UEFA Europe League. To top it off, on 1 June 2019, Atlético’s new stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano will host the Champions League final. 

During your stay, you will visit the famous Santiago Bernabeu stadium, the home of Real Madrid and also the Wanda Metropolitano, the brand new stadium which is the home stadium of Atlético de Madrid. You will also visit the Spanish national team’s museum and depending on fixtures watch a match or two because in Madrid you can watch top quality football as 5 teams are based in the city. Three teams from the capital, Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid and the recently promoted Rayo Vallecano and two based in nearby, Leganés and Getafe CF who all play in La Liga, Spain’s top division.

The other top national competition is the Copa del Rey, an elimination-based tournament in which all the teams from La Liga play two matches against each other and are disqualified as they lose. Also, this season, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid will once again both be competing in the UEFA Champions League.

Madrid..... a social & cultural experience

Madrid, the capital of Spain, is a cosmopolitan city with a large cultural and artistic heritage, a legacy of centuries of exciting history. Strategically located in the geographic centre of the Iberian Peninsula at an altitude of 646 m above sea level, Madrid has one of the most important historic centres of all the great European cities. These conditions, together with all the drive of a dynamic and open society have made this metropolis one of the great capitals of the Western world.

The historic centre, also known as the "Madrid of Los Austrias" and the spectacular Plaza Mayor square are two of the most popular and typical sites in Madrid. Near the Plaza Mayor is the area known as the "aristocratic centre" where the jewel in the crown is the Royal Palace, an imposing building dating from the 17th century featuring a mixture of Baroque and classicist styles. Beside it is the Plaza de Oriente square, the Teatro Real opera house, and the modern cathedral of La Almudena which was consecrated in 1993 by Pope John Paul II.

The Puerta del Sol square is surrounded by a varied and select area of shops and businesses, and the "Paseo del Arte" art route whose name derives from its world-class museums, palaces and gardens are further elements in an array of monuments which includes particularly the Bank of Spain building, the Palace of Telecommunications, and the fountains of Cibeles and Neptune.

But if there's one thing that sets Madrid apart, it must be its deep and infectious passion for life that finds its outlet in the friendly range of bars, taverns and restaurants, where you will sample the best Spanish and international gastronomy.
