Fees & Registration
“3rd Madrid Weekender was an absolutely brilliant trip! Both students and members of staff thoroughly enjoyed all activities spotlessly planned and scheduled by Gerardo. For the students this trip has definitely become a great and memorable highlight of their time at Sheffield Hallam University. We are looking forward to doing this again with the students from our course!”

“The Madrid Weekender should be at the top of the list of educational fieldtrips for every sport management program across the world. Soccer, tennis and basketball at their best; and the business side thereof too. In 2015, our students loved the experience and learnt loads. Highly recommended for students and staff alike!.”
