Select An Experienced, Reputable Sports Tour Operator
Once you have decided to take your soccer team on a trip abroad, select a tour operator who best meets your needs.
Settling on a reputable tour operation comes before actually deciding where you are going to go.
Do your homework. You aren’t looking for the local travel agency. You are looking for a company with experience, an excellent track record of organizing trips for soccer teams, and a tour group with a solid reputation for honesty and being able to deliver what is being promised.
That means you need to shop around and settle on several with whom you can begin discussions on what they offer and what you want on this trip.
The three companies that are advertising in our Travel Guide section below are all experienced, reputable sports tour companies, and worthy of your consideration.
And don’t forget to start the conversation early. The time frame for most soccer trips, whether they be for youth club, high school or college teams, often takes from 8-18 months.
That allows time for fundraising projects to pay the cost of the trip.
Cost can vary depending on when you want to go, where you want to go, and the length of the trip. Most select a 7-10 day time spans from departure to return.
The NCAA allows college teams to take trips outside the season every four years. Many college coaches take the trip to jump start preseason training.
