Dear players, parents and supporters,


Welcome to the FC Stars Tour of Spain in February 2019.  After the incredible success of our 2018 tour to England XL Sports Tours been chosen again to provide the ultimate soccer experience for our players, parents, coaches and siblings.  In 2019 we will be taking both boys’ and girls’ teams to represent the club overseas and XL Sports Tours have designed a specific schedule for players and parents that will allow them to get the best possible tour experience. 


The purpose of this email is to give you a little further information about the proposed schedule of the tour and how you can check out even more information on our very own tour page.


XL Sports Tours has been taking USA teams overseas since 2001 and the trips are always an enormous success.  The tours are unique, educational and a lot of fun.  Our players will be placed in a professional soccer environment, playing games against some top local Spanish teams including the opportunity to play against Academy programs from top clubs.  We will also have the players being coached by top professional academy coaches at their private facilities. 


In addition to events on the field we will also be attending a top class Spanish league game and taking tours behind the scenes of the Camp Nou, home to Barcelona and one of the most famous soccer stadiums in the world.  And that’s not all; we will also be touring some of the most famous sights of the great country including guided tours of Barcelona and Sagrada Familia.  We will also visit the stunning Montserrat Monastery outside of Barcelona and Parc Güell.


We feel this will be an incredible experience for players and their supporters and fully expect the tour to book up as there are a limited number of spaces available.  To ensure that this experience is available to all XL Sports Tours has an incredible FREE fundraising program that allows every person the chance to cover the cost of their tour.  The club will also be providing further fundraising options with more information to follow.  We hope you are as excited about this event as we are and for more information on the next steps please read ahead.
