Each year we book many teams with the Gothia Cup. Hassan Nazari of the Dallas Texans Soccer Club, one of Premier International Tours’ most loyal customers mentioned “I have been working with Premier International Tours and participating at the Gothia Cup since the mid 90’s. Together we have organized tournaments, camps as well as international soccer travel for our teams and coaches to countries such as Spain, Italy, Sweden, Aruba, the Netherlands and Denmark. When I think about Premier International Tours the following words come to my mind: very organized, reliable and trustworthy. If you have not experienced the Gothia Cup, you MUST. It will change your perspective in every way regarding the game and the world."
From the Gothia Cup staff: “Premier International Tours organized American teams to come to the tournament already since early 80’s, and has brought thousands of American youngsters to the Gothia Cup. They are always well organized and informed about their teams. All the teams that have been coming with Premier International Tours have always shown outstanding behavior both on and off the playing fields”.
