Year 9 Football Tour to Barcelona

(Lloret de Mar) Copa Santa Cup 2018

Year 9 Football 01








On Thursday 29th March The Abbey School Year 9 Football Team set off to Barcelona on their first ever football tour. Over the next four days the boys were due to play in the well renowned Copa Santa Cup based in Lloret de Mar, Barcelona – a tournament consisting of 197 teams from across the globe, with teams represented from as far away as America, Argentina, Lebanon and Australia, as well as household European clubs such as Real Zaragoza, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan.

Over the course of the weekend the boys were scheduled to play at least four group games, and spend a day relaxing on the beach. It was a fully packed schedule and the boys were kept busy all day every day! 


Day 1: We left The Abbey School at 8:00am and drove to London Gatwick. We then boarded our plane to Barcelona. The boys were really excited and for some it was their first time both abroad and on an aeroplane! We then took a coach south with our travel rep from Barcelona to Lloret de Mar where our 4* hotel awaited us. Once settled into our rooms we had our evening meal and the usual team meeting in preparation for Friday’s Opening Ceremony and first game.
