AC Milan Football Training Camps
Celtic Horizon Tours are delighted to offer your school or junior football teams the opportunity to take part in football training camps and football coaching with AC Milan FC, one of the most famous football clubs in the world. The packages we have available are suitable for schools and junior teams of all ages and abilities and training options can be changed to suit your team's exact requirements. They normally include one/two/three hour sessions with a FIFA qualified AC Milan coach at the Marco Polo Sporting Center in Vittorio Veneto, north of Venice. The Marco Polo Sporting Center is the first training site (outside of Milan) that has been officially approved by AC Milan to operate under the official "AC Milan Brand".
We will also arrange that your team matches will be arranged against local sides that are of the same or, of a similar standard to your team. Also included in our training camp package tours are tickets to a Serie A match for either AC Milan or Inter Milan depending on dates, locations and timings of matches. Any Serie A football match promises to be both interesting and exciting and no football fan or tourist arriving in Milan should miss the opportunity to see one especially when some of the top teams in the Serie A come together.
Finally, we like to make sure that everyone is fully occupied 24/7 so we include organised activities or short trips to some of the main tourist attractions in the city or surrounding area.
