Sit back and let some else take on training for a change. Included in each tour is a training session with a professional coach. Coaches in our networks are fully licensed by the governing body of the host country.

The Professional Experience

Professional Game

No trip would be complete without experiencing the professional game. GoPlay will arrange visits to professional clubs, either for a game or a tour. You may also have the chance to watch the professionals train, with time for autographs afterwards.

Coaches Travel Free

Coach with his team

GoPlay coaches qualify for free travel on their tours based on a generous free-trip ratio that is decided in advance. Contact us for further information on how these free places for coaches can be structured. In addition, all head coaches traveling with six or more players automatically stay in single rooms throughout their trip. Relax, unwind and get focused on the next game.

Fast Fundraising


We'll give you, at no cost, a four-day trip to London for two to see a Premier League Game. The trip is yours to auction, raffle or give away. All proceeds from the fundraiser go toward the cost of your team's trip. There's no faster or easier way to raise money. * Some restrictions may apply; contact GoPlay for full details.
