Foundation Football in conjunction with sportsandculturaltours.com brings you a cultural and educational football tour to Spain in 2018. In recent years the Spanish game has dominated the international stage both at senior and youth levels. It is a culmination of 20 years of groundwork established by the clubs and the Spanish football federation. A large part of its success is based on the number of highly qualified coaches and their football philosophy. One club, in particular, has highlighted the success of developing players. Barcelona has a model that has become the focal point worldwide. The now-famous “La Masia” has been responsible for many of the worlds current crop of world-class footballers. Barcelona’s model is unique. We will get to visit the magnificent Camp Nou and the history of the club in a highly informative interactive experience at the FC Barcelona Museum. The museum tour gives you access to change rooms media centres and a walk up the player’s tunnel. We will also have the opportunity to be coached by Barcelona coaches and play friendly games against local opposition of a similar level. The city of Barcelona is in itself a fantastic destination to learn about the culture of the Catalan society with their unique architecture inspired by Gaudi. We will also have an opportunity to be trained by coaches from Espanyol, Barcelona’s rival La Liga team.
All in all this tour promises to be an incredible journey of discovery, not only on a football level but also learning about a new culture, experiencing different culinary delights. For the parents and siblings accompanying. You will have many opportunities to relax and enjoy Spain while we look after the team. Presenting an ideal holiday for families.
