South America tour information


With the most diverse landscape in the world, South America offers a wealth of possibilities for touring teams. Icy glaciers in the south, the majestic Andes mountain range and the plains of the Pampas, the lush rain forests of the north; the continent has a variety of backdrops for an unforgettable touring experience.


Sport, and particularly football, plays a very important part in the lives of South Americans. For the male offspring of poorer families, soccer is seen as a viable option to escape poverty. From Di Stefano to Robinho, the European leagues have welcomed footballers from Latin America, offering a salary and lifestyle that would be unthinkable in their home countries. South America is rabid for the round ball game and a nation’s mood can be dictated by the form of its football team.


Rugby has long enjoyed a popular following and while the world at large will be most familiar with Argentina’s national team, the Pumas, Uruguay and Chile are also firm followers of the oval ball. Hockey also enjoys significant exposure in South America and is Argentina’s most popular sport for women.
