USA Tour 2017 & 2018
“SGEagles” was the name that Eintracht Frankfurt used for their first trip to the training camp in the USA in 2017. The club visited four cities in just twelve days for test matches and a training camp. Liga Travel worked closely with the club to organize flights, hotels and transfers for players, staff and external media. As the trip was a huge success, Eintracht traveled to the USA again in 2018, supported yet again by their trusted partner Liga Travel.
A fixed itinerary in preparation for the 2017/2018 Bundesliga season, with stays of between two and five nights in a total of four different US cities called for the expertise of Liga Travel, the Bundesliga’s official travel agent. A successful trip requires meticulous organization of flights, luggage logistics, overnight hotel stays and transfers between airports, hotels, training grounds and match venues. The finishing touch was the personal support that the club received from Liga Travel staff on the ground in the USA. And Liga Travel was also involved in the travel arrangements for the 2018 USA training camp right from the start. Liga Travel drew on its many years of expertise in organizing international travel to support Eintracht Frankfurt.
