"...from the moment we arrived at the Spanish National Team Training Complex "City of Futbol", to the moment of our departure after the match with Real Madrid junior team, everything was first class."
Alfonso Mondelo -MLS Technical Director Player Program-
“Our recent trip to Chelsea FC was a first class, premiership experience. adidas International Training Program was able to get us behind the scenes access to the intricacies of the Chelsea FC Academy and First Team operations. The CASL Chelsea FC Academy players experienced the day to day feeling of what an English based Chelsea FC Academy player experiences; the CFC Academy staff were extremely hospitable, challenged our players on the pitch, and made us feel a part of the Chelsea FC family.”
Michael Milazzo -Director of Soccer Operations- CASL
“Many operators in this field promise far too much, but adidas International Training Program met every request we had and every promise they made. The places we trained and played were first class, and the outreach that adidas have in the pro game is like no other. The ability to organize fixtures with some of the world’s top youth academies at the clubs’ own facilities was excellent for development purposes. The professionalism of the program is also very high, and we would like to take this opportunity on behalf of D.C. United to thank adidas ITP for all their help and organization on this tour.”
Todd Hitt -DC United Youth-
“… at the Charity Shield, you take it to the next level, which is two of the top professional teams in Europe competing, and certainly the atmosphere at Millennium Stadium … you could see their eyes open wide – they don’t really get exposed to that much in our country … a very valuable learning experience for the kids.”
Jim Abt -Coach DC United GU14-
“We are a young program and our partnership with adidas International Training Program allows us to reach the next level on player development, coaching education and overall club exposure. We have a toptier coaching staff and now with adidas International Training Program, both our coaches and players will receive a truly international view of the game; something they may not have received otherwise. We look forward to utilizing their resources as part of our continued development.”
Don Sheppard -President LAFC Chelsea-
"I want to say thank you to adidas ITP for making dreams come true for all my players, parents and coaching staff. This was definitely a trip that will be hard to duplicate. Your professionalism was evident from the very moment we started planning this trip and all through the planning, implementation and execution, you guys remained professionals as we work out the challenges of putting this trip together. My foundation EJJE Soccer Academy and staff are excited and looking forward to many more opportunities in the future with your company. Our hosts in Madrid were very professional and knowledgeable and we received more than was expected in the way Nacho and Juan Perez guided our whole trip. Juan made the whole trip exciting with his knowledge and passion for making dreams come true. We are very grateful to have dealt with both professionals in Spain. In my opinion, the only disappointment and complaints from everyone was “why do we have to go back?” and my response to the group is “So we can do it again next year and expand on the dream” and everyone got excited and are already talking about next year. Overall, this was a wonderful experience. A big thank you to your organization for helping us experience Madrid and soccer."

Steve Kulcsal, Parent -Pasco BU14-
"On behalf of our son Hernan (Nanu) we would like to express our gratitude to you, because you went above and beyond when hurricane Irene caused the cancelation of the flights, keeping our kids from coming back home on time. You were constantly in touch with us, through email or even over the phone, giving us reassurance regarding our kid’s wellbeing while in Spain. Most people take the time to share their complaints, which is human nature, I guess. We think it is very important to address when things have been handled professionally and with care, as well. The degree of excellence in any program is created mostly by the people that run it, people who are willing to go the extra mile when an unexpected situation arises. We feel that you have done an amazing job and we would like to thank you personally for that. Thank you so much for your time, care and consideration."
Laura Romer and Pablo Gelaf, Parents -Real Madrid Select Program-
"This was a fabulous trip. Our first trip to Europe could not have been any better. Sam and Nacho where excellent guides - knowledgeable, informative, pleasant and helpful. Nice balance of structured, organized activities as well as free time."
Anne and Mike Tizio, Parents -Pasco BU14-
