Football Tours to Italy, Verona

The Pedigree

For years Italy has been known for its tactical discipline, defensive solidity and fierce rivalries. However, the landscape in Italy, and particularly with youth football, is changing.

Whilst Italy is perhaps best known for Inter and AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli, at the other end of Serie A clubs are turning to home grown talent to combat the riches of their illustrious rivals.

In 2014 rules were put in place to curb foreign imports and encourage youth, particularly in the reserve sides of Serie A clubs. These caps have meant a refocussing and a modernising of coaching techniques, techniques that MSG Tours can build into your Football Tour in Italy.

Who’s it for?

Verona can cater to a wide range of abilities. With Chievo and Brescia’s academies located within easy distance of each other, there’s a chance to train with two Sere A clubs.

An abundance of local amateur sides means fixtures can be sourced to suit your needs and you’ll be sure to make friends for life in a city that lives for football.
