Victorian Elite Football Academy

It was with great pleasure that Esselle Sports Management welcomed Victorian Elite Football Academy from Melbourne, Australia, to England for a one week tour around the country before they departed for the MIC Tournament in the Costa Brava, Spain.

After a long plane journey the team was welcomed by Esselle staff at arrivals in Manchester Airport and tired spirits were lifted by a Stadium and Museum Tour of Old Trafford, home to the Red Devils themselves, Manchester United.

Following the journey down to Birmingham, where the team would be based for the next following days, Victorian Elite had games organised against worthy opponents such as Derby County, Wallsall FC and Port Vale’s youth teams.

In addition to their game and training schedule, the group also went sightseeing in Nottingham, where they attended the league game involving Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday, a day out around Liverpool, with a Stadium and Museum Tour of one of Europe’s greatest teams, Liverpool FC.

For the second part of their Tour Victorian Elite transferred down to London where they would remain for the rest of their trip, partaking in a training session with a Watford FC Academy coach, visiting Windsor Castle and attended the FA Cup Semi-Final between Wigan Athletic and Arsenal at the famous Wembley Arena.

On Monday 14th April, Victorian Elite were seen off to Barcelona from Gatwick Airport, where a friendly pre-tournament game had been arranged against CF Mollet.

We understand that during the MIC Tournament, Victorian Elite qualified for the Last 16s round before returning home to Australia.
