FC Kensington

"Just a quick note to thank you all for another excellent four days of football, the boys all had a great time and gained valuable pre-season experience from the event.
The Festival was everything that I have come to expect, great organisation, quality pitches, good opposition, experienced match officials. I am already looking forward to next year's event.
Carlsberg don't do Football Festivals but if they did they'd be like the Watford and London!"
 
Thomas W. Turner, Ph.D.
OYSAN Director of Coaching and Player Development

"As on previous tours, Travel and Play, Inc. provided friendly, courteous and exceptionally professional service throughout. Thank you Travel and Play for always making your job seem like the best time you ever had!"

Mike Freed, Director, Keystone United, Red Hill, Pennsylvania

"We've had 18 teams journey overseas with Travel & Play, and I've never been disappointed with the quality of the tour. We've been to England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark or Iceland, participating in tournaments, friendly matches and training sessions, but we've had the same quality arrangements and organization for each of our trips. Quite frankly, I don't think I'd consider booking a tour with any other company."

Oz White, Director of Coaching, Ankeny Soccer Club, De Moines, Iowa

"I have traveled the world playing, coaching, and watching football matches. It is my job and my passion. I have traveled with Travel and Play many times encompassing seven different countries. The planning and organization are always first class. The promises never false; Travel & Play deliver the sights, hotels, and most importantly, the matches they said they could arrange. Travel and Play understand the needs of the player and the coach; this is the deciding factor when I choose my travel tour company. I recommend you leave it to the experts and allow Travel & Play to take care of your travel needs."
Bill Coulthart, Soccer Coach, Cary Academy, North Carolina

Our trip was absolutely "brilliant." I have done many trips over the years and have been reluctant to use "soccer travel services." Travel and Play is like working with your family. They are intent upon you getting exactly what you want out of your trip. They will work with you, and try to do anything that they have the contacts to do. Their professional contacts for playing, watching, and touring are second to none. It's fun walking into Upton Park (home of West Ham United) and be escorted around by the director of their youth programs and treated as he would treat members of his own family! If you want a real treat, elect to rent 15 passenger buses and drive yourselves around the English countryside!!! We had a great experience both soccer and cultural!

Sven Kalnins, Assistant Girls Coach, Quakertown Community High School, Quakertown, Pennsylvania

"Our Travel & Play pre-season trips in February have provided the perfect build-up for the start of our season. In 2004, we took 18 players to Iceland for five days. The trip was so successful that we ended up taking 26 players to England for a week in 2005. We had top-notch matches,wonderful training sessions with extremely talented coaches and were still able to incorporate many great sightseeing activities into the trip. The feedback from the players and parents has been so positive that I'm sure we'll continue to offer these pre-season trips to our players."

Paul Holdgate, Boys Director of Personnel, Greater Toledo FC, Toledo

"The whole experience was first class. From the moment we arrived in England to the time we left, Travel & Play organized & covered every little detail. This made my job so much easier & more enjoyable. I would recommend Travel & Play to anybody who wants to have a quality trip"
