School Football Tour to South Africa

Best time to travel: March to August

South Africa is a fantastic choice for your next school football tour. The South Africans are huge fans of all sport and football is no exception – you’ll see locals playing football everywhere you travel here!

On your school football tour to South Africa, you’ll play local opposition of a similar standard. As well as building your team’s confidence and experience, this will also help your players discover the vibrant South African culture. 

You’ll stay in accommodation with fantastic on-site sporting facilities and, when not on the pitch, you’ll also have plenty of time to explore the country, taking in famous sights such as Robben Island and Table Mountain. A highlight of the trip will be a visit to a local township, where your players will enjoy the unforgettable experience of engaging with the local community.
