Soccer is riding a wave of popularity around the world, especially in the United States where annual registration of youth soccer players has risen from just over 100,000 in 1974 to more than 3 million players in 2010, according to the US Youth Soccer Association. Global Team Travel is capitalizing on that wave by taking soccer groups on custom soccer tours throughout the UK. "The UK is an ideal destination for teams and soccer players. Global Team Travel will work with you every step of the way to customize the perfect sports tour! We guarantee a trip that will be etched forever in the memories of players, coaches, & parents." Mick Smoothey, Co-founder of Global Team Travel
The company was established by U.K. Soccer Elite in 2005, as an international travel element to its year-round soccer training programs and camps. A professional sports tour company, Global Team Travel maintains excellent relationships with key officials so that they can plan the perfect trip for US soccer groups. Sample itineraries of customizable soccer tours throughout England, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Costa Rica, and the United States are available at globalteamtravel.com. Sample itineraries include:
- Visits to famous soccer stadiums like Old Trafford, the Theater for Dreams and Wembly Stadium
- Training opportunities with Academy coaches from top English Premier League Clubs like Manchester City, Everton and Bolton Wanderers
- Live soccer matches between English Premier League or FA Cup teams
All soccer tours include quality hotel accommodations with flexible meal packages, private bus service, bi-lingual tour guides, trip protection insurance, competitive training, and match arrangements. Global Team Travel tours give teams and individual soccer players the opportunity to absorb the soccer culture of well-known cities and landmarks around the world.
Three distinct tour types make up Global Team Travel’s tour offerings - team, individual and fan tours. Team tours give entire soccer teams the chance to travel internationally together. While overseas, teams can compete in international tournaments, train at professional academies or play friendly matches. Since it’s not always possible for entire teams to travel together, Global Team Travel offers individual players the ability to compete in international tournaments through its Team UK Elite program. In 2012, Global Team Travel took six teams of players to Spain to compete in the Donosti Cup.
Fan tours offer soccer enthusiasts the opportunity to watch the best live soccer matches that Europe has to offer. Through Global Team Travel, fans can watch teams like Barcelona play at the Nou Camp, AC Milan at the San Siro or Liverpool at Anfield. Whether you are a player, coach, fan or parent, Global Team Travel soccer tours turn your dreams into unforgettable realities.
