Part of delivering a first-rate sports tour means providing you with the best resources for promoting, planning and enjoying your trip. Below are some of the main highlights you can expect from GoPlay Tours:
Everyone at GoPlay takes their work personally. We pride ourselves on working with our coaches on the program, and taking better care of the team than anyone else in the industry. From your first phone call until we welcome you back home, you'll find a spirit of teamwork and a standard of service that are simply without equal. At GoPlay, we don't want to just work with you for your next tour; we want to be your travel partner for all of your future tours.
At GoPlay, we appreciate that training is probably the most important aspect of a sports tour. This is the time the players get to experience a different style, hear a new voice, and for the coach to learn something new.
That's why we partner with experience professional coaches to guide you through the sessions. We can also take onboard an area you may want work on and will put you in touch with the coach ahead of time.
When available these sessions will take place in at a Professional club's academy of the national training centers.
The games are important part of our program where you get the opportunity to match yourself up against teams from around the world. Play against a different style than you would be used to. We take time to match you up against similar level opposition to ensure an even challenging contest.
We recommend three or four games per tour, but we are flexible to match you team's needs.
After the game (where possible) we will arrange a post-match reception where you will meet the opposing players and share sporting experiences. We believe this brings culture and sport together.
Along will playing and training, seeing close looks at the professional game is something all teams need to experience. GoPlay includes at least one match ticket in the program fee, but with access to most professional club, usually a GoPlay team's will see two professional games.
