Solihull Editorial 27th Mar, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

SOLIHULL group travel specialists, Everywhere Travel has been signed up to arrange Birmingham City’s annual golf event in Spain for 100 of the club’s top corporate clients.

Held at the luxurious La Quinta Golf & Country Club in Marbella it’s the biggest event so far and includes a mid-season training break for the whole first team squad and backroom team.

This follows Everywhere Travel’s appointment as official travel providers for the Blues this season and next, whereby they arrange a suitable squad base for every away fixture across Britain – and all the booking logistics that go with it.

Ian Dutton, Head of Commercial for BCFC, explains: “Everywhere Travel are experts in the corporate concierge service that professional sports teams demand and have quickly proved their worth to our playing staff and business partners. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to like-minded sporting organisations.”

Blues manager Gary Rowett added: “They’re very thorough and proactive, so with all our wants and needs catered for at away games, it allows all the players and my staff to focus solely on the football matters in hand.”

Stephanie O’Reilly, MD of Everywhere Travel and a Monkspath resident, added: “For the Marbella event we’ve taken care of the flights, transfers and luggage, 5 star accommodation, all food and drink including a Gala Dinner & Awards Evening, plus dedicated event managers, hire of the golf course and golf pro and all the necessary pitch hire and football training requirements.

“It’s all about the preparation (and those bespoke personal touches) and we leave no stone unturned – whether we’re looking after professional athletes and/or corporate VIPs.”
