About Us

About Bravo Sport Tours

Our founder’s first two tours were in the early 1990s and little did he know the impact it would have on his life and many others. He took the first ever female American soccer team to South Africa in 1992 and little after that, made history again by taking youth soccer teams to Cuba for friendly matches against the Cuban Football Federation. Ever since then, he’s been dedicated to recreating that same experience for sports fans all over the world.

Bravo Sports Tours specializes in custom-made, top quality tours that change teams for the better. We handle everything from arranging matchups and flights to helping with fundraising. We’re sports people at the core, so we know exactly what it takes to put on life-changing experiences for our teams. The teams that travel with Bravo come home more united than ever, all while getting exposure to new parts of the world within their sport.

After over 30 years in the industry, we are still doing what we love – helping people all over the world indulge in their passion for their sport.

We’ve made history before…..come help us continue to make history for years to come.
