Experience all the excitement first-hand in the birthplace of the beautiful game of soccer.
The UK's captivating history, diverse cities and regions are surpassed only by its people's obsession with a game they invented in the mid-19th century: Football. Today, a century and a half later, it is football (soccer) that brings about sentiments of national pride and tradition to the politically aligned yet fiercely independent nations of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Established cultural icons like London, Edinburgh, Manchester, York, Liverpool, and Belfast dominate the urban landscape, while less traveled but equally intriguing destinations await the savvy ProActive traveler!
England & Wales:
England and Wales combine for an ideal soccer pilgrimage thanks to their blend of historic, yet progressive cities, soccer cultures, stunning coasts and rural countryside. In England, the Barclay's Premier League has positioned itself as the most popular professional league in the world, and recently, has attracted some of the world's greatest players to its historic teams and legendary stadiums. The league is known for its physicality amongst it's players compared to other major leagues around the world. England is home of the first ever soccer club in the world (Sheffield F.C.). Not only does is it the home of the first soccer club, they have the first ever knockout tournament which is still a very important tournament today, being the FA Cup, which is still held yearly. Wales is only a stone's throw away from the numerous Premier League clubs of the Liverpool and Manchester region and offers a fine rural escape to coastal castles, quiet villages, and the Snowdonia Mountains.
As the historic birthplace of soccer, Scotland's ideal location makes for a perfect multi-country with Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, and the North of England. In Glasgow, bitter rivals, Celtic and Rangers, compete annually for bragging rights in the Scottish Premier League's so called "Old Firm Derby". Along with neighboring Edinburgh, the "gem of the UK", and its nearby castles, lochs, mountains, and breathtaking coastline, a tour of Scotland is a must for any team looking for the classic soccer experience.
