A top official of the club said that, the entire team will congregate in Durban and shall be availing world-class training facilities next to the Moses Mabhida stadium, one of the host venues for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.


“I am very excited to have the pre-season camp in a country that has, firstly and fore mostly, hosted a World Cup and possesses great facilities and wonderful people. I was there during the FIFA World Cup 2010 and I am familiar with the passion and lovethat South Africa has for this beautiful game. We will make the best of this trip with the team. The friendlies played will be against quality opposition teams, which will aid our preparation,” NEUFC Head-Coach, César Farías said.

NEUFC will play friendlies against both PSL and SAFA-Under 23 teams over its three-week stay.

“South African has a long love story with football and I am thrilled that our team will compete against high-quality opposition. The pre-season will be an excellent opportunity for our team to condition and for our Head Coach to strategize and assess the dynamics on the field. I would like to thank SAFA and SAIFA for agreeing to host us and providing our boys with this great opportunity,” Club Owner John Abraham said about the upcoming tour.

NEUFC shall depart for the pre-season tour on August 31 and return to the Club’s home ground two weeks before the first match.
