Saints Head To Baltimore
Friday, 24th Jun 2016 14:12
Saints are heading to the USA for a pre season training camp and the destination is Baltimore where England once failed to destroy the star spangled banner. But who will be in charge ?
Southampton will be heading to Baltimore – the home of new partners Under Armour – for a week-long training camp in July.
Saints’ partnership with the global sports brand officially launches on 1st July, and the club will head over to the USA ten days later.
While some members of the first-team squad will be given additional time off following the conclusion of the European Championships, the rest of the team will fly out to America for the first pre-season trip of the summer.
The training camp will serve to build on the foundations already laid in the region, with Southampton Academy coaches delivering coaching clinics to local teams as the club develops its Grass Roots Club Partnership programme to support the progression of football in North America.
Under Armour, who will provide game-changing technologies and product innovations for Saints over the course of the next seven years, will also welcome the club’s players and staff to their headquarters during the trip.
Towards the end of the trip Saints will also play their first pre-season game, as they take part in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Friday 15th July.
Saints’ pre-season preparations will continue upon their return to the Staplewood Campus, before heading out to Holland on Friday 22nd July for three friendlies against Dutch opposition.
