Sprawling across 1,200,000 square metres, this large training complex belonging to Real Madrid Football Club opened on 30 September 2005. Located in Valdebebas Park, the colossal T-shaped building contains changing rooms, gyms, teaching rooms, conference rooms, offices, a hydrotherapy zone and medical centre, press rooms, etc.
The complex features the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium, which can hold 6,000 spectators (where Real Madrid Castilla plays), as well as 10 football pitches with both real and artificial grass surrounded by stands that can hold over 11,000 people. It also boasts a café, La Cantera, whose large windows allow fans to watch the athletes training on the adjacent pitches.
Rounding out Ciudad Real Madrid’s facilities is a Pavilion, a structure used for training the basketball players in the first-tier team as well as the reserve team. It can also be used to host institutional and commercial events.
