The Raiders Tour

Next year’s Raiders Tour to Bournemouth will be over the May Day Bank Holiday Friday 8th May – Monday 11th May 2020.

Following on from the success of last year’s tour which saw around 300 Fabulous Raiders Folk travel to the majestic beauty of Sandford Holiday Park…. we aim to be bigger and better, more girls, more boys, more parents, more fun…

What’s on offer?

Take a look at the Raiders Tour 2018 web site to get an idea of how it works. Boys and girls teams from across the Raiders age groups will complete on Saturday and Sunday in the Bournemouth Classic Youth Football Tournament. The tournament has earned a reputation as one of the most prestigious youth football tournaments in the UK, with teams from all over the UK competing in a well-run, competitive event. The all-important football is played at Bournemouth Sports Club on a 65 acre site, which provides 14 pitches – renowned as the best in the area and used by Bournemouth FC as their training ground.

On the Saturday night, we will be a hosting a Raiders catered BBQ for all our tourists in a private area of the site, with food and fun games for the kids included in the cost of the trip.

It’s a fantastic weekend for all the family. Quality caravan accommodation all together in a beautiful setting, with swimming pool, arcade (good for maths) … large bar, restaurant.  All players receive a special tour strip.

    “The tour was brilliant. I had a really nice time with everyone and made some great new friends and i really enjoyed staying in the same room as my best friend, Olly!”
  • James (10):
    “I really enjoyed the tournament. It was amazing setting up the winning goal for my friend to score on his birthday”.
  • Philip ( 25+):
    “It was brilliant. The accommodation and venue were perfect for the occasion. It was seamlessly organised and all the kids and adults had a really good time both socialising with each other and also either playing or watching the football. The Raiders BBQ on the Saturday night seemed to be attended by everyone and it was a real highlight. I would definitely recommend the next tour to all Raiders boys, girls and supporters!”
