The 5th Regiment are off to visit Barcelona...
We are proud to announce that the 5th Regiment Royal Artillery have chosen us to be the official tour operators of their 2013 football tour to Spain, Lloret De Mar.
Lloret De Mar is infamous for its vibrant nightlife and sandy beaches making it an ideal location for any sports tour to Spain. Spain is the proverbial home of modern football, with their national and domestic teams paving the way for technically gifted players to showcase their technical skills and innate ability to manage a football game through the invention of ‘tica-taca’ football. It has become a popular destination for any team who wish to embark on a football tour to Europe.
An excellent standard of local fixtures are readily available and the 5th Regiment will certainly be tested by their Spanish counterparts. Tour leader Darryl Hughes will be hoping the team will learn from their fixture against Spanish opposition and take their new knowledge into their domestic fixtures for the remainder of the season.
Conveniently, Lloret is just a one hour drive from Barcelona, home to world best player and club side. The 5th Regiment will take a guided tour of Barcelona FC’s impressive Nou Camp stadium. 150 foot letters painted on to the seats read “mes que un club” which translates to “more than a club”, which is a fitting statement as the 5th Regiment will discover. The team will take a behind the scenes look into the lives of Barcelona footballers as they tour the changing rooms and training facilities before walking on the hallowed turf. After they have soaked in the atmosphere of the stadium they will learn about the team’s history in the on-site museum where they can re-live some of the club’s historic domestic and European campaigns.
