The team set off from Gatwick on Sunday morning and arrived into Toronto in the afternoon. Once they had checked in and unpacked they had the chance to explore the local area and grab something to eat.

They had the next two days to explore Toronto. There is so much to see and do in this vibrant city such as the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, the Hockey Hall of Fame, Rodgers Centre and boat tours.


The first fixture was against Toronto Police Soccer Club on Wednesday afternoon. This was a well fought match and a reception was put on for the players following the game!

Military Sports Tours

Our first Military sports tours left our shores way back in 1998 with REME RFC visiting Portugal and RAF Cottesmore RFC travelling to Spain. Since then we have organised numerous tours for military teams and have built up a vast amount of knowledge about what is required to ensure they run smoothly; both during the lead up to the tour and whilst you are away.
