Military Sports Tours

Edwin Doran is the trusted name in worldwide military sports tours for HM Armed Forces, covering every destination in the world. All our touring options and destinations are bespoke for military groups, so take a look at all our destinations and sporting options to create your perfect military sports tour.

I was most impressed by Craig Bones, Head of Military Sales at Edwin Doran for such an amazing tour to South Africa. With Craig being ex-armed forces, he understood our needs and requirements and introduced us to some amazing people in country. We would really recommend Craig and the team for any tours overseas.

Adjutant General’s Corps

Our military tours are designed to bolster team spirit through challenging fixtures, training sessions, and activities, all of which are tailored to the British Armed Forces OSV tour purpose standards.

We have a complete understanding of military objectives and requirements, along with funding procedures for military travel.

What our customers say about us

We know we craft incredible military sports tours, but it’s better to hear it from the people who have travelled with us…

Army Medical Corps

Hockey Tour to South Africa

Hugest thank to all involved. South Africa, and specifically Cape Town, stole our hearts. The tour truly exceeded all of our expectations. Every activity and every interaction with Kevin as our amazing fixer on the ground, and Faisal, our fabulous, dedicated coach driver throughout, were excellent. They both went above and beyond to be flexible and accommodate us.

Royal Logistics Corps

Football Tour to Portugal

Completely professional and knowledgeable. I used Craig throughout the whole process as he knew exactly how to help me and resolved any issues in a speedy manner. The team were on hand whenever needed to provide information, and worked hard to rectify any issues we had. Our tour guide was fantastic, he spoke the language and made the tour run seamlessly where language barriers could have resulted in problems.
