Real Madrid FC is on the move, as always!!!

Talking about nostalgia, this was my teen years living in Madrid and playing for the Real Madrid FC both in the alavin division and on the sponsored Baseball team at the Elipa.

When lived here, I started out playing baseball for the Real Madrid at the Parque Municipal de la Elipa complex, remember taking the P13 bus (today is the 113) from Alcalà street to the Elipa. Today baseball is still played there and the seat of the Madrid baseball/softball federation. The stadium is here: http://www.rfebs.es/terrenos#

Then, I moved over to the football/soccer section at the old Casa de Campo fields, back in 1972-74. Real Madrid official pg is here: http://www.realmadrid.com/futbol/cantera/alevin-a

I have continued to played football all over where I have been until recently in an indoor corporate league in France.  Being very attach to the Real Madrid I have been a life long fan Madridista of the team and follow it religiously anywhere.

In the meantime, I am honorary member of five peñas or supporting group of the Real Madrid from Xove Galicia to Malaga Spain;visit often.

The trips to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Valdebebas Real Madrid city  for the junior teams are annually and sometimes more; some times getting together with similar friends there in groups or individually. Nowdays, the facilities have nothing in common to those of earlier years, more here: http://www.realmadrid.com/en/about-real-madrid/club/ciudad-real-Madrid

Needless to say,in both football and basketball we are the winningest club both in the Spanish League (Santander)  and European titles( Champions).

My hangout when by the Bernabeu is the Real Cafe Bernabeu restaurant where you can see the field of play sitting in a nice table. More here: http://www.realcafebernabeu.es/
