Villarreal CF continues to build international interest in the team. As part of the Castellón club's policy regarding overseas expansion, its Vice President, José Manuel Llaneza, and the CEO, Fernando Roig Negueroles, have travelled to Qatar. As part of the trip's agenda, the Villarreal representatives visited the facilities of the Al-Rayyan club and the Aspire Football Academy.
The goal of this corporate visit is to build relationships with Arab football and maintain the links Villarreal has with the organisations they visited. Firstly, Al-Rayyan football club (the team where Nilmar plies his trade) with which Villarreal has a close relationship, and secondly, the prestigious Aspire Academy, which operates in more than 15 countries and is considered one of the most important in the world.
