will get a kick from Spanish football, as
Real Madrid opens a new sports academy in the Port of Spain.

The Atlantic Real Madrid Foundation Social Sports School,
located in Trinidad’s Queen’s Park Oval, was launched last week by Spanish
footballer Emilio Butragueno, and marks the country’s commitment to helping
underprivileged children from both Trinidad and overseas.

The Foundation
already has over 160 schools in 55 countries, with more than 30,000
beneficiaries, according to the Trinidad

“We all acknowledge that football has an enormous appeal to
youth and can be a very important tool for social integration. Our main aim is
to build a better future for the younger generation,” the former Real Madrid
striker said at the launch. Demand from children has already seen the
school over capacity.

Brazil also gives real estate the boot

The academy is an enticing option for children, either for
local residents or overseas investors, as football continues to give a kick to
real estate markets around the world. In Brazil, the Lee Sharpe Football
Academy was recently launched, teaming up with the White Sands resort in Natal
to create an attractive investment pitch for buyers.

“They understand the
importance of football in Brazil and the plans they have for The Academy are
incredible,” the Manchester United footballer said of Green Planet
. “It will be an amazing space for White Sand’s guests as well
as the people of Natal.”

Tourism hope hits fever pitch

As both Manchester United and Real Madrid give rise to
football schools across the globe, countries have high hopes for economic
benefits, as well as a positive social impact. Indeed, Spain welcomes the chance
to develop alongside Trinidad, while property owners with homes for sale in
will be pleased to see increased tourist interest.

“[The Spanish government] is in full support of the
initiative,” adds the Trinidad Express, ”and hopes this will be the beginning
of a more ambitious and comprehensive institutional co-operation between
Trinidad and Tobago and the European country.”
