Wednesday morning is opportunity to explore Philips Stadium (The PSV Eindhoven Stadium) and the city of Eindhoven also known as the ‘City of Light’. After the morning’s proceedings the England Schoolgirls will return to the training pitches in preparation of their evening Match against the FC Eindhoven U15s.
Thursday sees the girls taking the time to get familiar with PSV Eindhoven’s training facilities and see the PSV first team put through the paces and on the final day the girls have the morning to enjoy the remainder of the city before flying back home.
The England Schoolboys‘ tour takes place in Italy and specifically Milan, home to footballing icons Inter and AC Milan. The first item on the itinerary saw the boys head to legendary stadium Inter Milan San Siro for a tour followed up by watching a league game between Inter Milan and Sampdoria. On day two, like the girls, the boys hit the training ground before taking to the streets and exploring the city of Milan.
