Oxford United to head for Portugal

17 February 2017

One foot in the Algarve for the U's

Oxford United are pleased to announce that they will be heading for Portugal this summer with 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 and talks are ongoing with a travel company to provide an inclusive flights and hotel package for the week. Those will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Chairman Darryl Eales said:

“The trips to Austria and Spain have been unforgettable experiences and have really helped form an unbreakable bond between the players, staff and fans. The players know they will have a lot of hard work to get through but I know they will look forward to visiting Portugal just as much as the fans.


“We wanted to announce the dates and location as early as possible to allow supporters to book their time off and make plans. We are slightly earlier in doing so than most teams which is why we aren’t able to announce who we will be playing quite yet, but it will be another hugely enjoyable week and we would love as many fans as possible to join us.”
