Home to the legendary Benfica, Lisbon is a fantastic choice of destination to prepare your team for the season ahead. On a school preseason football tour to Lisbon you can even enjoy professional coaching from Benfica’s own academy coaches.

You’ll then have the chance to pit your skills against local opposition, which is guaranteed to be of a strong standard. The Portuguese certainly take their football very seriously and your team will have the unique opportunity to experience this first-hand.

Just a short flight away, Portugal offers the perfect climate for football training. Its fantastic weather also means that when you’ve finished training, you’ll be able to enjoy all that Lisbon has to offer, including the chance to try your hand at surfing!

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'! As always, the experience of working with Halsbury on this tour was very good - everyone was very pleasant to talk to and helpful. They were always able to solve problems for us both in the build-up and during the tour. We consistently recommend Halsbury to other tour organisers, as they care about the tours they prepare and make sure they are tailored to our needs. — Brighton College , August 2023
