Soccer Elite FA to participate in Porte des Fagnes Tournament (Friday 29 May – Sunday 31 May 2015)

Dear Soccer Elite FA player,


We are pleased to extend a personal invitation for you to represent Soccer Elite FA in the Porte des Fagnes Tournament in Belgium.


DSC_9315SEFA will be returning to the Port des Fagnes Tournament for the second year running, with the fantastic welcome put on by the tournament organisers and Center Parcs, the superb football played at a great venue and the universally positive feedback from players and parents making it vital to secure our place again this year.


We will be competing against teams from across Europe for the tournament. Last season’s tournament included Southend and Cambridge United as well as sides from Portugal, France and Holland.


All matches (under 6 to under 15) will take place at the home of Royal Dolhain FC, one of Belgium’s most historic football clubs, with players and their families staying at the superb Erperheide Center Parcs complex.


As part of the tour all families will be able to combine their football with plenty of time to enjoy the amenities on offer at the Erperheide Center Parcs complex, which is home to an outstanding range of child-friendly facilities including a swimming pool, mini golf, a kids disco/entertainment, playgrounds and arcade.


In addition all players will receive a tour pack which last year included a bespoke match day shirt, bag, water bottle, sweatband and lanyard. Players will also have full access to our own SEFA physiotherapist, and the tournament will be extensively captured by our media team (website, social media, photos and videos) and media will be available both during the tour and after the event.
