The possibility of someday seeing an Indonesian superstar playing on a major European football pitch becomes more like with the announcement that the most successful football club of the 20th century will soon open a football academy in Bali.

Real Madrid's Bali Football Academy plans to train more than 220 young footballers between the ages of 9 and 18 years. Students will undergo a program of intensive football training under the direct tutelage of coaching personnel assigned from the Club's headquarters in Madrid.

A ten-month program of tuition will cost students US$20,000. Shorter programs, including a December 16-29, 2007 football camp, will also be conducted at the Real Madrid Football Academy - Indonesia.

The Bali Academy is the second of its kind operated by the football powerhouse, based on a successful model operated by Real Madrid in Mexico.

The Bali operation will be managed by PT Realindo Sports Indonesia whose CEO is Jose Eduardo Nadal. According to Nadal, each year the "A Team" players from the Real Madrid Football Academy Indonesia (RMFA-Indonesia) will be flown to Madrid for additional training and a match with Real Madrid Football Academy Madrid. The crop of best Indonesian trainees will also have the chance to continue training with Valadabebas and La Cludadd Deportiva del Real Madrid.

Selection of students for the 2008 academy in Bali is scheduled to commence in January 2008 with the first class of students to commence training the following September.

The training facility will be based at the exclusive Canggu Club, near Bali's western coast. The Club boasts Bali's best illuminated playing field, swimming pool, training gym and club house. The RMFA-Indonesia will build administrative offices, classrooms and a dormitory to support to its Bali venture.
