2012 saw the Spanish reign supreme once again with their victory in the European Championships. Being the birthplace of Xavi & co there is nothing like seeing the Spanish compete on home soil. This is exactly what RAF Marham & ATC Pirbright experienced on their military sports tours this season.
Both teams visited the Catalunya region, staying at the beach side resort of Salou. 40km from Barcelona, this modern resort represents excellent value for money. All hotels are located in close proximity to the nightlife/beach and boast bars, restaurants and an outdoor swimming pool amongst their facilities.
Incorporating the highest levels of football coaching and preparation, the teams spent time with the professional clubs with group coaching, stadium tours and player meet and greets (subject to the teams' schedules).
Following on from these experiences, each team had the opportunity to test out their enhanced skill base in friendly matches against local opposition.
After their extensive array of coaching and fixtures, the teams settled into their beach resort to enjoy the laidback style of Spanish life.
