Create your own football tour to Sweden
Although Sweden has a relatively small population, the country has a lot of youth football players. Youth teams from Sweden regularly travel abroad to play in international tournaments, so they are keen on international opposition.
Lots of youth academies can be found in the area around Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Nicknamed ‘Venice of the North’ because of its many canals, it’s also the most beautiful city in the country.
After a friendly match against a Swedish youth academy, your teammates will surely appreciate a boat tour or a stroll through the historical city centre ‘Gamla Stan’.
