Welcome to

Providing technical football tours to the heart of Spain developing players and creating a lifetime of memories.

What are we doing?

Technical Football Trips

Soccer 4 Success was created for footballers by football coaches.  Aware of the lack of technical ability and understanding in the UK and seeing the continual emergence of quality players from the continent S4S realised that UK players were missing out. The technical trip, whether 5 or 7 days, will allow access for players to open their eyes to the value of Individual Technique and light a fire in all players to improve and develop for the good of their game.

Training Sessions

Soccer 4 Success value the drive to learn and the desire to improve and trips can include sessions with FC BARCELONA coaches and also RCD ESPANYOL coaches. All other sessions will be delivered by top Spanish coaches trained by the Spanish Federation as well as UEFA qualified. Coaches will have a fundamental understanding of the skills required to succeed in football and how to develop them. These technical sessions will also be developed into higher tempo drills and games with the participants being able to put skills learnt into practice in a competitive environment.

S4S in Barcelona

Soccer 4 Success have options to run from a number of key venues throughout Spain and Portugal however have chosen to make Barcelona our home. S4S constantly scout new destinations looking for the unique blend of facilities and location that enable our camps to be such a success. In Barcelona S4S found an exciting and unique venue with a city that matched vision and ambition of Soccer 4 Success.


Soccer 4 Success believe that to feel smart and play free what a player wears is important. Because of this every participant will receive plenty of kit to keep that will provide a common identity for the camp. All S4S branded kit will be supplied by NIKE and will not only provide a great reminder of the trip but ensure that parents do not need to spend money on extra clothing to attend the trip.



S4S trips will provide benefits both on and off the pitch from the development of technical and social skills to those of cultural interaction.



Soccer 4 Success was established by Massimo Valenziano and Christopher Priestley in 2002 and has been running trips in Italy and Spain ever since.



Soccer 4 Success staff strive for excellence and have a burning desire to bring the benefits of European coaching to a culture focussed on size and strength.

Famous quotes

Since our return, the trip continues to have a positive influence on my students; attendance to training has improved as well as a significant increase in student’s work ethic; they want to stand out more in training to show other students what they learnt from the trip, and are constantly heard referring to feedback they received from the coaches.

It really was the best organised and most enjoyable visit I have been involved in. I would recommend this visit to anyone working with football teams, who either wants to offer them a once in a life time experience, or aims to develop their players physically, emotionally and psychologically. This trip did all of those things for my students.

Miss Bain, Balby Academy of Sport

So impressed with your organisation and commitment to the boys throughout the trip, Sam and Harry are still talking about it and can,t wait for football to start again, Your all stars, Thank you so much

Lisa Duncan, Parent on 2014 Trip

Daniel has not stopped talking about the trip and thoroughly enjoyed it, it was an incredible experience and whilst I was more than a little apprehensive him being so far from home and being for the first time I had utmost trust and faith that he would be well looked after.

The Facebook updates were invaluable as I was able to see how much of an amazing time he was having.

Thank you Chris and all the team involved it's an experience I am so pleased Daniel had the opportunity to have and one he will never forget.

Sara Curtis, Parent on 2014 Trip
