Company Snapshot

Before Beckham and Ronaldinho, there was Claudio Marangoni. A household name across Latin America, Claudio enjoyed an illustrious soccer career before retiring to start Escuela Modelo de Futbol y Deportes, the first-ever professional soccer schools and sports clinics for Argentina’s youth.

The schools serve children from age 3-13 and are franchised throughout the country, serving public and private schools, community centers, country clubs and businesses. Integral to the company’s model is free tuition for underprivileged children. Since selection, he expanded his training schools to Chile and Spain.

Endeavor and Escuela Modelo de Futbol y Deportes

Claudio’s relationship with Endeavor provided him with business contacts that facilitated the expansion of his training schools, and helped his company gain added publicity.

Doing his own part to strengthen the Endeavor peer community, Claudio has hosted recreational soccer matches between Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
