City Book Up Spain Training Camp

Bristol City will be heading for a pre-season training camp in Spain’s famous La Manga Club resort ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

Lee Johnson will take his charges to the award-winning Murcian resort between July 18th and 24th for some warm-weather training just a few weeks before the new season.

As well as being put through their paces on the training pitch at La Manga Club, the City players will also have the chance to gain some further match practice with a pre-season friendly scheduled during the camp on July 21st, with the opposition to be confirmed.

“La Manga comes very highly recommended to me,” said head coach Johnson.

“It’s everything the players will need. There will be good pitches, excellent sports and conditioning facilities and we just have to find ourselves a decent game whilst we’re out there now.”

City have already booked up pre-season friendlies at Yeovil Town (July 16th) and Cheltenham Town (July 25th).

With extensive facilities including eight FIFA-approved grass pitches, La Manga Club has made a name for itself as a first-choice destination for warm-weather football training breaks.

A collection of the game’s biggest names including FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are among the clubs to have stayed at the resort.

As well as its football training amenities, the venue boasts a fully equipped gym and indoor swimming pool, ideal for recovery sessions; a host of rooms and spaces to cater for tactical meetings, private team dining and a new High Performance Sports Centre, where players can use the most advanced technology possible to study all aspects of their health and training programmes.

In addition, La Manga Club is also the first resort in the world to open a High Performance Football Centre, offering professionals, both established and aspiring, the chance to sign up to one of its new comprehensive, fully residential programmes to help display their talents and further their careers.
