For many years we have been working with Leagues and clubs to ensure they enjoy and get maximum benefit from their travel plans where we coordinate every aspect including liaison, travel, accommodation and participation in football fixtures and tournaments both in the U.K. and on the Continent, thereby allowing the Leagues and clubs to concentrate on their football preparations.”

SFAI Chairman John Earley said “DB Sports Tours has built a great reputation with our Leagues and clubs within the SFAI for its reliability and quality of service and has played a very important role in assisting Leagues with the preparation of their squads. The SFAI is delighted to form this new partnership with DB Sports Tours and we look forward to a fruitful relationship with this rapidly expanding enterprise.
