Brazilians often refer to their country as O País do Futebol – after all, they have won the FIFA World Cup a whopping five times, more than any other country. So, really, where else would you choose to go on a once-in-a-lifetime school football tour?

Your team will have the chance to pit their skills against local teams of a similar standard, giving them first-hand experience of the Brazilian style.

Other great footballing experiences include a game on Copacabana beach, a professional training session with local coaches, and even the opportunity to see the pro’s in action at the world-famous Maracaña.

[Dortmud has a] mainly pedestrianised city centre so it's safe for walking groups around the city. All sporting activities within a short bus journey of the accommodation also. Attendance at a BVB Dortmund game made the trip. Highly recommend going. The trip was amazing and from day 1 Halsbury staff were all so helpful. – Knocklyon United Football Club
