Shrewsbury-based study and sports tours provider, Activ4, sealed the deal at a recent match at White Hart Lane, which will provide schools and junior football clubs across the UK the opportunity to not only tour White Hart Lane and watch the first team train, but also have a training session with the club’s coaching team.
Activ4, experts in educational travel, specialise in creating high-quality and inspiring trips for secondary schools and colleges such as school ski tips, football tours, multi-sports and performing arts trips; plus study tours for art, geography, science, history and languages.
The two-day Tottenham Hotspur package includes a visit to Spurs Lodge to watch the first team train; a tour of White Hart Lane and a training session conducted by the club’s coaching team. The trip will also include a stop-off at Wembley for a tour of the national stadium.
Commenting on the new partnership with Spurs, Activ4’s Managing Director, Steve Scott, said: ‘We are thrilled to be able to announce our partnership with the club’s Development Team – this is a real coup for us. This is a really great opportunity for young footballers to get a glimpse into the life of a Premiership footballer and we’ve had a lot of interest from teachers and junior club organisers looking to take their players on a really special tour.
‘Gaining access to professional clubs and, particularly the chance to see top-level professionals in training, is virtually impossible and we’re very grateful to the club for providing this opportunity.’
At the partnership signing, Mark Jones, the club’s Football Development Manager said: ‘It’s great to have Activ4 on board. Steve and his team have put together a quality product that will provide a top-level football experience combined with a trip to London. The new tours will give access to a whole new audience of children who may never have had the chance to interact with the club.
‘It’s important for us to work with credible partners who have an excellent reputation within their industry and Activ4 certainly meet these criteria. We’re looking forward to welcoming the first Activ4 visitors to White Hart Lane in May.’
The tour is priced from £165 per child and includes travel and half-board accommodation in the capital.
The company is also offering a one-day trip option which includes the coaching session and a tour of White Hart Lane and travel from £69.
