    GoPlay team up with Celtic Soccer Academy

    By: Newsroom Staff on 28 Mar, 2017 11:59

  • CELTIC Soccer Academy is pleased to have partnered with GoPlay Sports Tours who have been appointed as the designated United States travel operator for the Academy’s international partner clubs in the US.

    For the next three years, GoPlay will work with Celtic Soccer Academy to enable players and coaching staff from our partner clubs in America to visit Glasgow and experience life at Celtic FC, alongside opportunities for the Academy’s coaching staff to travel and deliver coach education in North America.

    Based in Boston, GoPlay have over 35 years’ experience in leading sports travel programmes across the US, offering aspiring young players the opportunity to fulfil their potential by linking up with first-class training academies around the globe.

    Celtic Soccer Academy and GoPlay will launch their new partnership with an event at the New Balance Headquarters in Boston from April 26 – 30.

    This inaugural event will be the first of many, offering soccer clubs in North America the chance to attend coach education sessions and on-field demonstrations with Celtic Soccer Academy coaching staff on hand to showcase the club’s approach to developing young players.

    With 23 affiliate clubs in North America already signed up to the Academy’s international partnership programme, this relationship with GoPlay will help provide simplicity for teams looking to arrange overseas trips to Celtic Park, while facilitating fantastic opportunities for the Academy’s US network to grow even further.

    Darren Lyons, Programme Director at GoPlay Sports Tours said: “Celtic Soccer Academy is changing the face of soccer in North America, and we couldn’t be more excited to be officially partnered with such a world-class institution.

    “At GoPlay, we believe travel is the ultimate tool in helping aspiring soccer players to reach their full potential, and exposing our players to the kind of competition and training they can get at an academy like Celtic’s is absolutely invaluable.”

    International Soccer Academy Manager, Willie McNab, added: “We are excited to partner with GoPlay as it gives our US-based partner clubs the opportunity to access world-class organisation to help them visit Celtic.

    “This will also be hugely beneficial to us in terms of expanding our reach within North America and growing our partnership programme within the region.”

    If you are a soccer organisation in North America and are interested in our International Partnership Programme then get in touch with Willie McNab on +44 (0) 141 551 4335 or [email protected].
