AFW ELITE has earned growing respect worldwide in being a leading force positively impacting the growth of American football and experiences internationally at the U19 level.  Steadily we have expanded the opportunities to young people around the world who want to grow and enjoy this great team game. After well-received and highly successful tours representing the United States against national representative teams in France, Italy and Spain, AFW ELITE is seeking to accept an invitation to bring a team to the remarkable country of Spain in April of 2020. This will be a history making event as this will be the first contest between a US high school select team and a national team assembled by the American Football Federation of Spain.

Peniscola Castle

The 2020 Spain tour agenda includes a daily practice – usually early in the morning – to advance skills and coordinate schemes for these historic international games. The remainder of the day into the early evenings are filled with insightful educational tours, some relaxed experiences and some free-time exploration where one can immerse into the fascinating and intriguing culture of Spain. The tour schedule looks to maximize the time in Spain and is ambitious. You will spend evenings in beautiful Barcelona, uniquely fascinating Peniscola and then on to the historically rich capital city of Madrid for additional touring and the international game.

Arriving at Barcelona’s International Airport on Sunday, April 12 the team and tour group will begin its on famous Las Ramblas. Time will also be spent on Montjuic – home of the 1992 Summer Olympics with its stunning views, Tibidabo, Parc Guell, Barri Gatic (well preserved medieval center), Port Olimpic and of course incomparable Sagrada Familia.

After a couple evenings in this beautiful small city the team and tour group will travel south along the striking Mediterranean Coast with a day stop in Tarragona with its stunning Roman ruins. Continuing south a couple nights will be spent in Peniscola. This unique spot in the world contains a Moorish Castle – later occupied by the Templar Knights and recently a filming site for a Game of Thrones season – which sits at the end of a beach-lined peninsula.

USA-AFW ELITE Players with National Team of Italy

On Thursday travelers will transfer to Madrid with a day stop in Valencia – home to attractive Spanish architecture along with some of the most stunning modern architecture in Europe. In addition, many say that Valencia serves the best paella in Spain.

Arriving in Madrid Thursday evening the team and tour group will have a day of touring this famous capital city. A final practice will also take place this day. Saturday is a day like none other you have or will experience as you and your USA teammates will represent our great game and the level of our play against the national best of Spain.

AFW Looking to Make History in Spain 2020

After the game we will have an unforgettable celebration with our Irish hosts and the opportunities all had to grow together through the game of football.  You are invited to begin some overseas friendships that you can carry into the future.  Invite someone to visit you in the US – and better yet put yourself in a position to come back and visit Ireland again.

You will return home on April 19th to eagerly share stories from the most remarkable week – and likely the most unique and special football game – you will have experienced in your life.

Go USA – Play to Win!
