From £395pp i

A school football tour to the Netherlands is a great opportunity for players to experience an overseas tour without travelling too far from home. We base our tours in the west of the country due to the quality and variety of excursions, the proximity to Amsterdam, the excellent professional coaching and the sheer number of local football clubs. Before you take on the local opposition, we highly recommend a stadium tour or live game at AZ Alkmaar.
