Football Moments

School Football Tours to France wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the country’s national football stadium. It’s hosted 3 Champions League Finals, the 2016 Euro final, and was permanently etched into footballing history by hosting the 1998 World Cup final, where France lifted their first World Cup.

That means your students can follow in the footsteps of legendary players and teams who have graced those hallways. Take in the unique architecture, see the dressing rooms, walk down the tunnel, and be led by an expert tour guide full off special footballing stories.

Our school football tours build on that whilst also providing the perfect setting to explore France, with chances to visit cultural hotspots in Paris as well as your school team playing against competitively matched local sides.
