Inspiresport, the UK’s leading provider of sports development tours, is delighted to announce it has been named as preferred travel partner for Celtic FC’s North American International Club Partners on a multi-year basis. The first British club to win the European cup and who last season completed the historic domestic ‘Treble Treble’ have a network of associated clubs across the world, with many of them in North America, a market which is planned to see significant growth during the course of this new agreement. Celtic FC’s International Club Partners have the opportunity to travel to Glasgow for a unique training experience with the club’s academy coaches. The players can learn new or enhance existing skills whilst developing a greater understanding of the academy’s philosophy of trust, respect and teamwork. Steve Butchart, CEO at inspiresport said:
“We’re delighted to announce our new preferred travel provider status for Celtic FC’s North American based clubs. We see this as a great opportunity to bring teams across to Glasgow to experience Celtic’s successful brand of soccer and develop player skills with the Club’s professional coaches.
We were absolutely thrilled to have been approached by Celtic FC to work with them on a multi-faceted programme of development with their North American clubs. The proposition they provide to these partners is truly impressive and the timing of our agreement is perfectly aligned with the growth of our brand footprint in the region.
We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship and can’t wait to get started!” Senior International Soccer Academy Manager Willie McNab added,
“We are delighted to announce this long term relationship with inspiresport, as we believe they are at the forefront of providing high quality coaching tour experiences for soccer groups across the globe.”
“Our North American partner clubs will have access to a first class service and dedicated staff at inspiresport who will give them the best experience possible. Being able to visit such an iconic club like Celtic and experience training with our top academy coaches, taking in a game at Celtic Park, one of the world’s great footballing arenas and train at our academy facilities is an experience of a lifetime. We look forward to welcoming groups in the coming months”.
