FC Boavista - Pre-season Tour to England

For the third year running PSC organised Boavista’s pre-season tour of England that included a game against Premiership new-boys Wigan Athletic on Saturday 6th August 2005.

PSC were responsible in organising every single aspect of the tour including flights, luxury coach transfers, first-class hotel accommodation, training facilities and the team’s general welfare.

For the duration of the tour Boavista stayed at the Wrightington Hotel in Wigan, owned by Latics Chairman Dave Whelan.

Boavista’s Executive Director Joao Freitas showed his thanks to PSC;

“Once again I would like to thank Paul and Mark (Taylor) at PSC for their efforts in organising this game for us. It is the third year that they have organised a pre-season tour for us in England and we look forward to continuing working with them again in the future.”

Wigan’s Chief Executive Brenda Spencer said,

“We were delighted to arrange such an attractive friendly for our fans and Boavista provided us with a stern test in preparation for our Premiership opener next week.”
