If there’s anyone who knows how to celebrate a good win, it’s star footballers.
And this Friday, Real Madrid legend Míchel Salgado will be partying in Dubai with junior fans in a fiesta like no other.
The Spanish Soccer School Director and his team of coaches are inviting young athletes on November 2 to play, win and mingle after winning the Time Out Dubai Kids award for Best Competitive Sports Organisation this year.
So, what’s in store for everyone who joins? First, loads of free football for the school’s players, their friends and parents at the Dubai Sports City indoor dome.
Parents, make sure you warm up as you’ll be challenged by the coaches too.
Players will also be recognised for the win by the International School of Choueifat Dubai.
Spanish Soccer Schools will also be holding fundraising tournaments and leagues, and – get this – auctioning a T-shirt signed by Cristiano Ronaldo.
It's the ultimate keepsake from one of the best football players of all time.
The school will also be offering a bring-a-friend promotion, where if a child brings a friends to register with them, they receive a free football gift.
The 6th season of Spanish Soccer Schools has kicked off and parents can sign their budding champions up to be trained under the guidance of experienced coaches.
Aspiring footballers aged five to 15 years will learn all about the game at Dubai Sports City’s state-of-the-art facilities.
The school uses the Spanish model of football that saw Spain’s National Football Team lift consecutive European Championships in 2008 and 2012 and the FIFA World Cup at South Africa 2010, becoming the first-ever side to win back-to back Euros.
Spanish Soccer Schools follows a holistic philosophy which ensures that kids’ all-round development needs are met through sport.
Footballing skills aside, it also teaches kids the importance of sporting values, team spirit and togetherness.
Party like the biggest football players? We can't say no to that.
