TOUR OF ITALY 2020
Friday August 21st to Sunday August 30th
Welcome to the ISC Gunners Tour of Italy in summer 2020. XL Sports Tours has once again been chosen to provide the ultimate soccer experience for our players, parents, coaches and siblings. In 2020 we will be taking both boys and girls teams to represent the club overseas and XL Sports Tours have designed a specific schedule for players and parents that will allow them to get the best possible tour experience. Our previous tours with XL Sports were to England in 2016 with over 75 people joining us to represent the club and then in Spain in 2018 when the same number travelled again. Both tours were a massive success and we fully expect the tour of Italy to be even better!
XL Sports Tours has been taking USA teams overseas since 2001 and the trips are always an enormous success. These tours are unique and educational with a massive emphasis on enjoyment of the entire experience rather than just soccer. The players will be placed in a professional soccer environment, playing three games against top international competition and training with professional academy coaches at their private facilities.
During the tour we will be staying in top ranked hotels in the Lake Como area, Montecatini Terre in the regions of Tuscany and Rome. We will not only see all the incredible sights of Florence and the amazing coastline of Cinque Terra but our players will also train at Coverciano, home to Italy’s national teams, and even visit the world famous San Siro Stadium, the home of AC and Inter Milan. We will also visit the city of Milan and take a bike tour around the wonderful medieval town of Lucca. There are many incredible events planned including a food and wine tasting experience at a farm in Tuscany and a visit to the famous town of Pisa and its leaning tower. To make sure we get our soccer fix we will also see a top class Serie A game between some of Italy’s best teams and experience the passion of Italian football fans!
We feel this will be an incredible experience for players and their supporters and fully expect the tour to book up as there are a limited number of spaces available. To ensure that this experience is available to all, XL Sports Tours has an incredible FREE fundraising program that allows every person the chance to cover the cost of their tour. We hope you are as excited about this event as we are! For more information on next steps please read ahead.
