The Blancos have followed in the footsteps of

Bayern Munich by pledging a seven-figure sum to

those migrating into Europe

Real Madrid have announced they are to make a €1

million donation to aid the refugees fleeing war-torn

Syria.

Hundreds of thousands of people have risked their

lives to migrate to other countries in Europe - at

least 2,500 have died in the process - with

pressure now being ramped up on governments to

provide greater relief to those in need.

Bayern Munich announced on Thursday they have

donated €1m to help people pouring into Germany,

and Madrid have now pledged the same amount to

aid refugees in Spain.

A club statement read: "Real Madrid has announced

that it will donate €1million to aid refugees that are

taken in by Spain.

"Faithful to its commitment to charity, the club has

taken this decision with the aim of supporting men,

women and children who have been forced to leave

their homes in order to flee from war and death.

"The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez,

spoke yesterday by phone with the president of the

[Spanish] government, Mariano Rajoy. The pair

talked about this contribution and other measures

that the club will put in place in order to collaborate

with the care of refugees that arrive in Spain.

"Among these measures, the club is considering

various initiatives and schemes with a special

focus placed on the youngest refugees. It will also

make some of the club's infrastructure and sports

goods available to the Executive's interministerial

commission that organises the system for receiving

refugees."
