E.I.F. Ricardo Godoy
Our organization was created in 1990 in Mendoza (Argentina) under the name of “Escuela Internacional de Fútbol Ricardo Godoy”. Today is recognized all over the world. We have reached 29 years of experience in 2019.
We have worked in Argentina, Spain and Portugal and we collaborated to develop children’s football in Cuba, Angola, Morocco, Mauritania and Mali. Our teams have travelled around the world.
In 2016 we have created our Foundation in Mali under the name of “FUNDACION CANARIA ESCUELA INTERNACIONAL DE FUTBOL RICARDO GODOY DE MALI” to work in solidarity campaigns and promote football.
In all these years, we have achieved a continuity in our services, working hard every day to move forward with our football programs and future projects, such as Mundialito and Pre-Mundialito.
In addition, our school owns the “football museum”, with more than 6.000 objects and the T-shirts of the most important football players in the world.
Our organization has become an international sports management group, becoming the largest group organizing sports events in the world.
