JAUME I UNIVERSITY (UJI): Cátedra Villarreal CF del Deporte

The main lines of work of the agreement with the UJI – signed in December 2012 and called Cátedra Endavant Villarreal CF del Deporte (Villarreal CF Endavant Sports Research) – are the following:

  • Grants for elite athletes: With several years already celebrated, the support programme for elite student athletes at the UJI has increased from the initial €10,000 to €30,000.
  • Research projects: “Penyagolosa Trail Saludable”: Participation in research projects in the field of physical activity. The ‘Catedra’ collaborates in the “Penyagolosa Trail Saludable” (Penyagolosa Healthy Trail) project.
  • Villarreal CF Radio: The official Villarreal CF radio programme continues to be carried out entirely by UJI students through Vox UJI Ràdio (107.8 FM).
  • Grada UJI: The club allocates 100 tickets in the Fondo Norte to the university (except for matches against Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Valencia CF) so that it can sell them among its students at a price of just €10, or if they are an athlete at the university, the price is just €5. The money raised will go towards reinforcing the Cátedra Endavant Villarreal CF del Deporte programme.
  • Training and employment: There is an agreement for internships in different departments of the club. With Communication Science students, real practical exercises are proposed, integrated into the syllabus of the degrees and some students are rewarded with the opportunity to complete an internship at Villarreal CF.

 

The Cátedra will be based in Vila-real, the province of Castellón and the Region of Valencia, and will be directed by Carlos Hernando, lecturer in the Department of Education at the UJI and director of Sports Services.

COLLABORATION AGREEMENT WITH THE IES MIRALCAMP SECONDARY SCHOOL

Villarreal CF and the IES Miralcamp secondary school in Vila-real, as entities with common interests in the field of the integral education of people, especially adolescents, have a collaboration agreement that serves to establish joint lines of action to promote the importance of an education based on the acceptance of individual differences and the valuation of these as a personal and social enrichment. Thus, the two entities have taken another step forward in their relationship, collaborating in the comprehensive training of students. Many of the Yellows’ youth players have been studying at the IES Miralcamp secondary school in Vila-real for some time, taking advantage of the fact that it is just a few metres from the Training Ground.
