Oxford United are pleased to announce further details as we head for Portugal this summer for a week-long training camp on the Algarve.
Following on from the hugely successful pre-season tours to Austria in 2015 and Spain in 2016 the U’s will have a week in the sun from July 10th to 16th, staying near the Vilamoura resort and including two friendly games.
Details on the opposition will be confirmed over the next few weeks but there will be two games in Portugal, the first scheduled for the Wednesday and the second on the Saturday.
These are scheduled to take place at the Ferreirias Stadium, Albufeira
The players will be staying at a training camp away from the main tourist areas but we advise supporters to stay in the Vilamoura/Qarteria area, where there are a wide range of hotels, restaurants and bars close to the stadia.
Vilamoura is a purpose-built leisure resort with a huge range of luxury hotels, privately owned villas and apartments on the golf course complexes, and a wide range of hotels and apartments near the marina.
Vilamoura marina is the main centre of activity with restaurants, bars and shops. Luis Figo's 'Bar Sete' (bar seven) is also on the marina front. There is a Casino, and there are boat trips, specially designed trails for walking and cycling and restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets.
The opposition will be confirmed as soon as possible.
