Soccer Elite FA to participate in Rome International Cup (Thursday 2 April – Monday 6 April 2015)

Dear Soccer Elite Swadelands player,

 

We are pleased to extend a personal invitation for you to represent Soccer Elite FA in the prestigious Rome International Cup taking place Easter 2015.

 

We will be competing against teams from across Europe and beyond for the four day tournament. In previous years the cup has attracted Roma youth sides, feeder clubs for Juventus and Roma and outfits from further afield.

 

All matches (under 7 to under 18) will take place at one venue – the superb La Borghesiana complex – which has top quality grass and 3G playing surfaces along with excellent viewing platforms for spectators and catering and leisure facilities.

 

La Borghesiana is affiliated to AS Roma and has been used for training by the Italian national football and rugby sides. In addition the facility is home to ASD Lodigiani Calcio, the club that launched the careers of Italian international legends Luca Toni and Francesco Totti.

 

Players and their families will stay at the Hotel Novotel La Rustica (or similar*) in Rome, a four star family friendly hotel just over 20 minutes from La Borghesiana and central Rome. Players and their families will enjoy excellent facilities including a swimming pool, indoor and outdoor playing areas, a video games room and bar, restaurant and cafe facilities.

 

During this extended football tour there will also be plenty of time for families to explore the beautiful sights of the Italian capital city.
