Football training camps in SalzburgerLand

Best training conditions for top international clubs

Professional football players do not fall from the sky. Playing in the top league means training, training and more training. It is at least just as important that the individual professional football players act as a team. And this particularly works best far away from home. This is reason enough for top clubs to hold their training camps abroad.

Best conditions in SalzburgerLand

That is why SalzburgerLand is especially popular. Renowned clubs such as Bayer 04 Leverkusen or FC Schalke 04 have permanently scheduled a training stay in SalzburgerLand in their annual calendar.

There are several reasons why the Austrian province is particularly popular:

  • The proximity to Germany enables arrival by bus.
  • The mild climate and largely unpolluted air speak in favour of SalzburgerLand.
  • The topic of safety also plays a role – Austria is considered a very safe country.
  • The training grounds provide optimal conditions.
  • The players find the best infrastructure in the top hotels.
  • The scenic environment also offers interesting and varied training opportunities off the pitch.

FC Schalke 04
Only a few kilometres away, the Königsblauen (Royal Blues) set up their summer training camp in Mittersill, in the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region.

Numerous other top international teams such as Brighton & Hove AlbionBlackburn Rovers, RSC Anderlecht, RB Leipzig, Hamburger SV, Arminia BielefeldFortuna Düsseldorf, Eintracht Braunschweig, Spartak MoskauRubin KazanSlavia Prag, and national teams from South Korea, Russia and Hungary have also held training camps in SalzburgerLand.

This creates perfect synergies for SalzburgerLand, and as a result the regions also make a name for themselves as a holiday destination. Fan clubs frequently travel along with the teams. Local guests – at least football enthusiasts – also get something out of these training camps. It is rare that anyone can meet the players in such an informal atmosphere. In addition, fans can also enjoy one or the other test match during their stay in SalzburgerLand.

Bulls Camps

The “Bulls Camps” sponsored by Austrian champions FC Red Bull Salzburg also prove that much is done for young football talents in SalzburgerLand itself. Young football fans between 6 and 14 years of age can train like a pro under expert guidance at various locations such as Altenmarkt, Leogang, Tamsweg, Fuschl and the provincial capital, Salzburg.
