Dear friends of UK International Soccer,
Through our partnership with XL Soccer Tours, UK International Soccer presents to its members and friends an incredible opportunity for true fans to travel to the home of soccer to experience all the passion of the beautiful game. In November 2019 we will be heading to London for the ultimate fan tour with live games, behind the scenes stadium tours, all the sights of the capital city and fantastic accommodations.
XL Soccer Tours has been taking USA groups overseas since 2001. Their knowledge and contacts in the UK allow them to provide an unbelievable experience for the diehard soccer fan as well as those just wanting to travel overseas and take in all the sights of England and the capital city!
The schedule will include two professional live English Premier League games AND a night game under the lights at one of London’s top English Championship League clubs. In addition we will be taking a behind the scenes guided tour of some of London’s top clubs and their home stadiums. Our group will be able to see the famous grounds belonging to Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and the home of England Soccer Wembley Stadium!
We will also have time for sightseeing and even holiday shopping in the city and stay in top quality London city center 4 star hotels. Our group will have its own luxury bus to pick up and drop off from the airport and then during the stay our tour guides will be with us and take us around the city center on the famous London Underground.
