Real Madrid to establish sports schools in Pakistan
The Real Madrid Foundation (FRM), an NGO established by Spanish football giants Real Madrid, has signed an MoU with a Pakistani NGO which will see FRM establish their social sports school model in Pakistan.
The project will kick off with two schools in Karachi that will comprise 400 boys and girls aged six to 17, reports The Express Tribune.
Foreign coaches from Spain will also visit Pakistan to train local coaches. In addition, students with disabilities will receive specialised care.
"We are excited about the implementation of our FRM model in Pakistan for the betterment of children through the power of sport," said Real Madrid's Sporting Director Miguel Pardeza.
FRM was established in 1997 to service the disadvantaged through the power of sport.
