Testimonials from previous tours:


“It’s been fascinating to meet different groups of different countries, not only football clubs but the football federations and associations.”


Graham Griffin – Steward Training & Recruitment Manager Arsenal FC  


“It’s been a very good learning experience to hear from other countries and other clubs, so we are very happy with the first part of the workshop. It was nice to be able to walk around in the stadium and see what the presentations are showing, you see that in real life afterwards.”

Kasper Kragh – Security Advisor Divisionsforeningen, Danish League  



“If you’re talking to other people you get a different view and that also helps us to find different solutions or probably better solutions with the experience of the stadium experts.”
