Ciudad Real Madrid is the moniker for the training facilities used by the Real Madrid football team. It is situated just outside of Madrid, close to the huge Barajas Airport. A relatively new facility, the Ciudad Real Madrid is now used instead of another facility known as the Ciudad Deportiva, or Sports City. Built in 2005, it is a very large place, although only 21,578 square meters out of 1.2 million square meters have been developed. Due to its close proximity to the airport, there are many cheap hotels in Madrid near Ciudad Real Madrid.
More construction is planned for Ciudad Real Madrid in the future. Phase one of the construction is well underway. It will include not only training facilities, but medical facilities as well. There will be twelve separate playing fields, one of which will be for Real Madrid’s home games. A mini stadium and a basketball stadium are in the plans for future construction. With all of this exciting construction going on, there are sure to be plans for more discount hotels near Ciudad Real Madrid in Madrid.
