Our trip had 78 boys and parents going from Dublin to Lisbon. We couldn’t have done it without DB Sports who had great local contacts. They picked a great hotel by the beach, organised flights, match tickets, coaching sessions at benfica and games vs local football clubs for the boys. Life long memories - thank you Darren and Ruta!

We had our first trip to Cambrils and football Salou with the Homefarm FC Girls teams from U13s to U16s, DB Sports gave us great advice and Darren and the DB Sports team put together an amazing itinerary of competitive football, fabulous accomodation and recreation options, they couldn't have been more helpful and available during the trip for questions and last minute changes etc. and gave us great support. The trip went off without a hitch and the teams had a superb experience, I would highly recommend booking your trip with them for a tournament or general football and team bonding experience.

Padraig manager Clontarf u14 I am updating my review to include the trip to play in the Mare Nostrum in March 24. Leading up to the trip, Ruta in DB Sports was brilliant, so organised which made things so easy for us. When we got there, despite there being 450 teams the event was well run, any minor issues were dealt with immediately by Darren. The lads and their parents had the time of our lives again. I highly recommend DB Sports for trips like this We, Clontarf u13 competed in the Costa Duarada Cup based in Salou in Easter 23. Our lads and their parents had the time of their lives, everything was organised so well, the food, accommodation and transport, so we only had to concentrate on playing and having fun together. DB Sports were a pleasure to deal with, from picking the tournament, advising on flights and setting up personalised payment options.

I can’t thanks Darren and his team enough for all his help in organising the travel, accommodation and tournament. DB sports attention to detail is exceptional and our team really enjoyed our trip. As we said at the start of organising the trip our lads have made memories for life. We cannot wait to get organising another trip in association with DB sports. Thanks again Darren.
