“‘It’s an unbelievable opportunity”

‘It’s an unbelievable opportunity for aspiring footballers to be playing in a fantastic stadium like this. I never had this type of tournament when I was a child and I’m sure all the players will treasure their experience forever.’

“Thank you so much”

“On behalf of my boys, I just wanted to say thank you so much for putting together what was a fantastic experience for us all (although the result was not what we would have wished for).

From arrival to leaving, the welcome, information and organisation that you gave us was first class and the venue/food/kit were all amazing.”
