Football Tours to France
A fantastic close-to-home destination for football teams
A football tour to France ticks so many boxes: it’s close to home, has a strong footballing tradition and there’s no shortage of teams to play or pitches to play on! We base our tours in Paris, giving you access to some of the best youth teams, iconic stadium tours and plenty of options to fill your free time. And of course no football tour to Paris would be complete without a visit to the Stade de France!
We’re thrilled to see schools are as keen as ever to get back out on tour and we’re already helping school sports teams get their plans underway for later this year and 2022, so let us help you get planning too!

Are you taking bookings right now and how far ahead should we plan?
Yes, we are absolutely taking bookings! Due to the bespoke nature of our trips, we always recommend you try planning at least a year ahead. We have already taken many bookings for next year and a good amount of groups are choosing to plan even further ahead for 2022, giving them plenty of time to launch the trips to parents and students. Ultimately, the further you can plan ahead, the better.
Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?
Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.
