In June 2017, AcademyTrips.com organized an England tour for the U11 team of Crossfire Premier (USA). During their trip, the boys were based in the city of Manchester. From here they set out on an exciting itinerary, including friendly matches against Blackpool FC U11 and Blackburn Rovers FC U11. The American team also had stadium tours at Liverpool FC and Manchester City FC.
Crossfire's trip was completed with a participation in the Liverpool FC U11 Football Cup, organized by Liverpool FC and AcademyTrips.com and held at the grounds of the Liverpool FC academy in Kirkby. Participants included the English clubs Liverpool FC, Manchester United and Burnley FC as well as Hearts (Scotland) and the Norwegian Soccer Academy (Norway).
Troy Letherman (director of development at Crossfire Premier): "Attending the Liverpool FC Football Cup was an amazing opportunity for our U-11 team, but even more impressively, the week of activities put together by AcademyTrips.com, including the stadium tours and friendly matches versus top clubs, provided a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our young players. Everything about the trip was professionally run and operated and we can't say enough about this experience."
Crossfire Premier is a regular participant in tours and tournaments organized by AcademyTrips.com. Earlier in 2017, Crossfire Premier's U10 squad travelled to the Rood-Wit U10 tournament in the Netherlands. Still to come this year? Trips to the Bierbeek tournament in Belgium (U13) in August and the Madrid Football Cup (U14) in September. We're very proud of our good cooperation with this development academy from America.
