Antwerp Football Holiday package

0800 086 8338

Antwerp. Sparkling in the Belgian sunlight, this city is the diamond geezer of the world. Literally. Its roots, as the planets diamond centre, go back generations and it’s not hard to spot the wealth that’s derived from it. If you’ve got your eye on a ring for the missus then this is the ideal place to start looking. From its amazing gothic cathedral to its stunning train station, this city has a fair bit of class about it.

However, that’s not really what brings us here. What does attract us is the football and the incredible Belgian breweries. Royal Antwerp are one of Europe’s old aristocrats, their seat at the top table of Belgian football may have slipped away, (they haven’t won the league since 1957), but they are Belgium’s oldest club and have long been regarded as one of the country’s best supported. Set up by English students in 1880, this club has many ties with English football and still has an ongoing relationship with a certain red club from Manchester. As for the beer, well there’s plenty of it, with breweries, bars, and clubs aplenty, to entice even the most moderate of lager drinkers.

The Football
Royal Antwerp are known to one of the first football clubs formed in Belgium back in 1880.

Their home is the Bosuilstadion a fittingly grand old stadium for a grand old club although being quite rundown it adds to the grounds character.

Capacity: 16,649

Residents of the Bosuilstadion since 1923

Founded by a group of English students residing in the city back in 1880

The most successful period of Antwerp’s 145 year history came in the 90’s where the club reached the European Cup Winners Cup Final only to lose 3-1 to Italian side Parma. To this day they are still the last club from the Belgian to reach a European final.

Antwerp are also proud of their links with Manchester United, they often receive young players out on loan to assist with first team experience with John O’Shea and Jonny Evans being some of the biggest names to do so.

Brussels Football Holiday package

0800 086 8338

The capital of Belgium, Brussels, is one of those big cities that often gets overlooked. Known more for its tendency to eat small cabbages and produce kung fu fighting actors, this is a place that is severely misunderstood. It may be the home of European politics and men in grey suits, but there is far more to this growing capital. R.S.C Anderlecht are Belgium’s most successful club and, with them currently fighting towards the top of the table yet again, are on track to stay that way. In addition the city has one of the last traditional breweries in the city, opened since 1900 and it’s the home of Tin Tin!!

If you happen to be into comics, some people are you know, then the Comic Strip Museum is a place that shouldn’t be missed. And finally, how can you not visit a city where its most photographed statue is called The Pissing Boy!?

The Football

Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht have always been the biggest club in Belgium, based in the south west region of Brussels. Anderlecht play their home matches at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium. The stadium has been the club’s home since 1917.

Capacity: 28,063

Formally known as Parc Astrid, the stadium was renamed after the club’s honorary president former player and coach for the club.

Constant Vanden Stock’s son, Roger is the current President with a great family tradition installed at the club, no chance of foreign investors here.

In Tribune 4 behind the goal plays host to 7000 standing spaces which is where you’ll find the most vocal of Anderlecht support, The Mauves Army is the main ultra group of Anderlecht expect the odd flare but most common a flamboyant “tifo” (fan art choreography) before matches.

Being in Belgium there are no shortage of places to drink before the game, and we know all the good spots that many other don’t!

Lyon Football holiday package

0800 086 8338

The city of Lyon, France’s third largest city, is famed for its architectural delights and, with its gastronomy and culture being a big draw card for international visitors, it’s a city we can’t wait to visit. With its galleries and museums, parks and gardens, there’s a lot to see here. Cinema as we know it was born right here in this very city!

Lyon is also home to the fantastic, and not half bad, Olympique Lyonnais (holding firmly in France’s Ligue 1), and is one of the host cities of the European Championship Finals in 2016. With a new stadium currently being built, we are planning to do many trips here over the next few years. Can’t wait.

The Football

The Stade de Gerland is home of French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais with this season due to be  their last one here as they intend to move into their new home, the Stade des Lumières after Euro 2016.

Capacity: 43,000

Home to Olympique Lyonnais since 1950

Has hosted matches at 3 other major sporting tournaments, Euro 84, France 98 and the Rugby World Cup.

Lyon will be leaving behind a classic old English style stadium with 4 individual stands and no corner sections while the new stadium resembles a Wembley like design. Stade de Gerland is just over 2 miles from the centre of Lyon so the city’s bars and pubs are the best bet for a pre-match tipple.
There’s a string of bars and restaurants along Lyon’s main river, The Rhône, or if you’re seeking out fellow fans on a match day, then the Place des Terreaux is a large open square which always attracts fans.

It’s hard to believe that up until the millennium, Lyon’s trophy cabinet looked rather bare. So much so that their title winning season in 2001 was the first time the club had won France’s Ligue 1. Remarkably, they then went on to win the title 6 more times in consecutive seasons – a French record.

Lyon’s success was built on shrewd business acumen from owner Jean-Michel Aulas who earmarked an ambitious plan to make Lyon one of the giants of European Football.

The team’s success on the pitch was down to their focus on developing and nurturing young talent. Lyon are responsible for the careers of Michael Essien, Florient Malouda and Karim Benzeman as well as a host of other French international stars.
