Experience soccer in one of the top soccer cities in the world: Barcelona!
Soccer in Spain is among the best in the world. Spain were the 2010 World Cup Champions and the winner of the 2008 UEFA European Soccer Championship. Spain also won the 1964 European Nations' Cup and reached the UEFA Euro 1984 Final. The Spanish Women’s National team’s most recent success was reaching the Round of 16 at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. The budgets of Spain's professional teams are astronomical. No wonder Real Madrid and FC Barcelona belong at the top of European soccer, and that these two clubs are eternal rivals. Soccer teams traveling to Spain will surely encounter exciting soccer here!
Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain's most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean's busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer. What a rivalry! Real Madrid represents Spain's capital city, while FC Barcelona stands for Catalunia, the province covering northeast Spain near France. Here you will find one of Europe's most popular seaside resorts, as well as one of the most exciting European cities. No wonder Premier International Tours has organized programs here almost since its inception. Most of the events take place in the hilly countryside north of Barcelona. Here you will find hosts offering few frills, but a great ambiance for international soccer travel teams.
Spain and Barcelona is one of the most popular Premier International Tours’ destination. For many years Jim Eisenhardt of the Morrisville Soccer Club took his team to the Costa Brava coast close to Barcelona. Coach Eisenhardt stated “The Morrisville Soccer club began taking youth soccer teams to Europe in 2005 and at that time we were very fortunate to become acquainted with Loek van Zijl and Premier International Tours. With the assistance of Loek, Mike Stebbins and the rest of the Premier International family we have had the pleasure to travel with more than 15 teams to many different countries including Denmark, Italy, France, the Netherlands and various times to Spain-Barcelona. I am unable to write about all the wonderful moments my teams have experienced, as every trip has been a trip to remember. I would trust Premier International Tours to help you plan an amazing experience for your team and am now looking forward to taking our next team to Europe in 2020! Thank you for all the great memories!"
Premier International Tours is very fortunate with its excellent local staff Clive and Lisa. For well over ten years they have been enthusiastically helping our groups visiting Barcelona, the capital city of Catalunya. They mentioned “We have organized a variety of tours (from 20 -100 people) which were specifically tailored to the needs and wishes of each group, taking into consideration the composition and priorities of each group regarding age and competitive level of each teams, and the number and requirements of the accompanying parents and other family members. Sightseeing opportunities abound, watching a Pro game with international stars, cultural, historical, religious, shopping and for those of you coming out of a cold US winter, time on the beach or a boat trip. We offer you ample time to decide your requirements and will give you plenty of feedback before the tour. We will be with you 24/7 to ensure the smooth running of your tour. The local knowledge and experience is very important and includes both soccer and a knowledge of living in Spain as a foreigner”.
