    3. 3. “ Over the years, I have seen countless international matches at all levels, and I cannot begin to tell you how important the role of international competition is in the development of youth soccer players and teams. Traveling internationally with your team will present you with invaluable opportunities to grow on and off the field as a team and individuals. In addition to challenging matches on the field, these trips give your team unique opportunities to spend time together off the field, building valuable friendships and learning about other cultures and people. Our experience over the years with Premier International Tours, formerly Euro-Sportring, allows us to be confident that this organization will provide a first-class tour experience that your team will never forget.
