The Dallas Texans Soccer Club is pleased to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement with the historic Club Atlético de Madrid. Founded in 1903, Club Atlético de Madrid has 112 years of history. It is one of the most highly decorated clubs in the world, and indisputably in Spain.
In its recent history, the Club has been showing a great dominance on the field being able to play 9 finals and to win 7 titles, which makes the last 5 years a memorable period in the History of Club Atlético de Madrid, full of achievements and remarkable records: 2 Europa Leagues, 2 UEFA Supercup, 1 Spanish Kings Cup, 1 League, 1 Spanish Supercup. All of these victories caught the attention of both local and global media and football fans and made Atletico one of the most renowned and attractive teams worldwide.
We are extremely excited about this cooperation. It will allow our Texans coaches to spend time in Madrid every year observing training at Atletico de Madrid's youth academy. In addition, Atletico de Madrid coaches will visit the Dallas Texans every year to conduct coaches' clinics for our staff and train our Texans players. Nike, the major sponsor of the Texans and Atletico de Madrid, was instrumental in the creation of this relationship.
"International partnerships are becoming increasingly important for us," said Hassan Nazari, Founder and Executive Director of the Dallas Texans. "More and more American players are playing professionally in Europe, so we want to give our players an avenue to sign with the European clubs. But even for our players who want to go on and play in college, the exposure of our coaches and players to the European style of play is extremely beneficial, especially from the country and culture that has been European and World champions."
On behalf of Atletico de Madrid, Emilio Gutierrez, the Academy General Director, added that “as a sports organization, we think that football, due to the media dimension that it reaches internationally, and due to the values that it represents, is becoming a strategic tool that serves to bring cultures together and tighten bonds between countries and people. Sport, when well channeled, is an excellent platform of global communication, which functions to send messages, perform actions and project business strategies on a worldwide level.
