Player Development Program (PDP)
The Player Development Program (PDP) is a program focused on players aged 18 years and over who want to try themselves out in Spanish football under the successful Villarreal CF training methodology.
During their stay, players will be trained by the club’s coaching staff and compete and train at Villarreal’s facilities.
The main objective of the PDP is to improve the players as footballers in a unique professional environment, as well as helping them to grow as people and sports professionals.
