Our action-packed 16-night Follow Australia Tour commences in one of the world’s most historic cities, Moscow. 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 fly to Kazan for Australia’s first group stage game vs France. From Kazan we travel to Ulyanovsk (Lenin’s birthplace) by overland coach and then onto Samara for Australia’s match with Denmark. We then fly by charter to Sochi for Australia’s final group match with Peru. Finally each guest has the option of completing the tour in St Petersburg or back to Moscow.
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 (France function will be post-match due to 1pm kick off) and then to the stadium. Green & Gold Army pre-match functions, which include lunch or dinner 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 or review the match and provide insight.
