Well-matched sports fixtures are the most important factor in any successful school sports tour, and we have a long, proven history of getting them just right.
With 40 years of unrivalled experience under our belt, many of our overseas sporting partners are legendary ex-sporting internationals. We often gain access to some of the best sporting facilities in the world and our relationships with clubs and schools are by far the strongest in the sports environment. It’s a testament to our reputation that some sporting institutions will only use Edwin Doran Sports Tours as their tour operator and fixture contact.
Perfectly matched play
Whether you are on a high-performance tour, or a playing and cultural tour, getting the fixture levels correct is paramount and it’s something we’re proud to excel in. We match visiting teams with hosts that challenge them to compete to the best of their abilities, yet also give visitors the potential, with enough effort, to shine and show their skills. In this way, we help to keep your team engaged and spurred on to stretch themselves and develop. It’s no wonder that 95% of all our fixtures around the world are rated ‘just right’.
Unbeatable mix of venues
Our exclusive contacts also mean that we get the blend right between playing at world-renowned venues and grass roots school and club venues. On one of our tours, you could be playing at a famous venue such as the National Netball Stadium in Jamaica, Bishops School in South Africa, The Police Ground in Antigua or Azlan Shah Hockey Stadium in Ipho, Malaysia. Just as important in our itineraries are the friendly games at clubs such as Singapore Cricket Club or a kick about in Langa Township on a football tour of South Africa. All of these offer totally unique playing experiences that add up to make your sports tour truly unforgettable.
