One can dream of watching a match at a grand stadium such as the Civitas Metropolitano, home of Atletico de Madrid. But what about the dream of playing a game on this green field whose grounds have had the privilege of hosting some of the most stellar football legends?

Such was the unparalleled prize granted by Betway; the fulfillment of a dream so big that it seems farfetched! Such was the trip to the Spanish capital, Madrid, and such was the private visit to the stadium facilities of one of the oldest and highly esteemed Spanish clubs, and the priceless chance to experience what it is like to be a player on the field, in a friendly game against Betway Brazil.

A farfetched dream that turned to reality; Betway provided an opportunity that otherwise would occur once in a blue moon. Every participant and winner have experienced first-hand the magic brought by the embodiment of an impossible dream, no matter where in the Arab world their journey started. Whether they’ve come to Spain from Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar or Kuwait, they all came to Spain with a shared love of the game, a mutual bond of being passionate about Spanish football, and a common admiration of Atletico de Madrid.

From the Arab region, launching into the heart of the football world in Madrid, Betway’s initiative has propelled the Arab youth towards a uniquely unforgettable experience.
The moment the plane landed at the Barajas International Airport marks the beginning of this incredible journey. You’re being greeted by a welcome sign from Betway. You’re being driven to the hotel. You look at the road, and it’s the famous “Grand Via” street. You arrive to one of the best hotels in Spain. Your heart swells, and the air buzzes with the smell of the field’s grass and with the excitement of competition among Madrid’s clubs. You can feel the electrifying magic in your bones wherever you go in Madrid.

However, this feeling intensifies to its ultimate peak when you cross the threshold of those grandiose entrances to the stadium; your skin prickles as you realize the importance of sports to the Spanish people. Everyone experienced this feeling, having had the opportunity to watch key matches in the Madrid Open Tennis Tournament, the most significant of which, of course, were those of the men’s final, held in the “magic box” stadium, all thanks to Betway. Spain’s own Carlos Alcaras, who comes from Murcia and is expected to dominate the tennis scene in the future, put on a spectacular show against German veteran Jan-Lennard Struff, throughout three groups, and eventually added a well-deserved triumph to his victories on the clay courts.

Of course, though, all eyes were set on the incomparable green field of Civitas Metropolitano. There, even the smell of grass is unique. There stood French world champion Antoine Griezmann, and there ran Spanish star Alvaro Morata. There played Dutchman Memphis Depay and Belgian Yannick Carrasco, to name a few of an extensive list football icons.

There, too, the Betway team experienced the ultimate dream of a football fan. The game was the grand finale that perfectly capped off a tour of the stadium, passing through the museum, the halls of administration and technicians, all the way to the dressing rooms, and finally to the store selling exclusive supplies branded with the Los Rojiblancos logo. The significance of this logo is essential, as it adorns the jersey of the famous Spanish club, and it also adorns the jerseys gifted to each of the winners at the end of the event. To add to the individuality of the occasion, the jerseys also carried the winner’s name and their favourite number.

All was building up for the most awaited moment of the entire trip; the game between Betway MENA, representing the middle east and north African region, and Betway Brazil. The giveaway winners teamed up with well-known faces in the Arab world, from football freestylers, sports content creators, TV presenters and social media influencer to represent Betway Mena, in a game where no one was concerned about winning; everyone’s focus was on having a good time and enjoying the precious 45 minutes they spent on the green field. After all, it was an impossible dream come true to be there, and as always, Betway turns the impossible into reality.
