Hockey Tours to Portugal
Hockey tours to Portugal offer visiting teams an extremely high standard of hockey with competitive matches. This is a great short haul destination with a wealth of cultural experience as part of the trip too!
Portugal is a destination with many attractions to offer sports touring groups, from the beautiful beach location in Carcavelos, to the Lisbon city centre full of history and culture.
The picturesque Portuguese capital is vibrant city with a habit of creating competitive local hockey teams, thanks in part to the clubs formed within the greater Lisbon area and their progressive facilities. Hockey teams visiting Lisbon will have tales of underestimation in terms of the opposition quality and thus it’s bracketed in the upper echelons of prime touring locations for hockey in Europe.
The beachfront location of MSG’s hockey tours to Portugal offers a simple R&R opportunity with plenty of activities on the beach such as surfing schools, beach football and volleyball. Featuring a half day city tour and FC Sporting stadium excursion, students benefit from an inclusive sporting and cultural experience on our hockey tours to Portugal.

When to visit Portugal?
Portugal can be visited all year round with pleasant winter months that are mild and often sunny and warm. The spring/summer/autumn months are perfect weather for touring hockey teams, with periods of warmer sunshine in July and August.
“Having visited Lisbon, I’d recommend a city tour to soak up the culture and history the capital has to offer where you’ll find lots going on with every corner that you turn. The outdoor restaurants make a great spot for lunch or coffee and whilst in Lisbon, make time for a tram journey to the ‘Miradouro de Senhora do Monte’ for the panoramic views.
Hockey tours visiting the Portuguese capital are sure to have a great time with the competitive fixtures on offer, coupled with an opportunity for culture and history.”
