Tour Summary

Our action-packed 16-night Follow Australia Tour commences in one of the world’s most historic cities. Moscow isn’t just the heart of Russia but home to the Kremlin, Red Square and St Basil’s Cathedral.

Moscow will host our Welcome Party, where we’ll be joined by Socceroos fans travelling on our Moscow Home Base Tour. From Moscow we’ll travel to the host city of Australia’s first group stage game.

From there, we’ll spend 3-5 nights in each host city. In each city you’ll be given the opportunity to uncover its unique sights and culture on organised day tours. During the evenings, our guides will show you to local bars and restaurants, where we’ll catch all the group stage action.

The night before a Socceroos match is always an exciting time in the host city, with a truly festive atmosphere as you meet and mingle with fellow Australians as well as fans from the opposing nation.

On match days, our coaches will transport us to the venues of our pre-match functions and then to the stadium. Green & Gold Army pre-match functions, which include lunch and drinks, are renowned as being the perfect way to warm up to the all-important match- our expert panel of football personalities will be on hand to preview the match and provide insight.

Following the match, we’ll travel as a group to the next host city, where we’ll do it all over again. Welcome to Russia. Welcome to Follow Australia!

Maximum Price Guarantee*

Because there are 11 host cities of various sizes (for example Moscow has a population of 12 million and Saransk has a population of 295,000) it means that accommodation costs can vary quite considerably between host cities.

The final draw is scheduled to take place on 1 December 2017 in Moscow. If the Socceroos obtain a favourable draw in terms of accommodation costs in our host cities, or if accommodation costs in the various host cities become more certain prior to the draw, then we reserve the right to reduce the cost of our Follow Australia package and to pass some savings on to you (which I’m sure you won’t complain about!).
