FFV Representative Team Leaves For Japan

International Tour For Regional Players

Some of Victoria's top regional players will travel to Japan this month for a unique football and cultural experience.

A squad of 34 players will go on the tour, the majority having been involved in Football Federation Victoria's Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC).

The tour will depart Melbourne on August 14 and return on August 22.

Players will travel to the Fuji and Yaizu regions, playing against local academy and school teams and taking part in cultural experiences.

The tour aims to expose players to a new way of playing and a new style of professionalism and development. FFV will also benefit from enhanced relationships with international programs and exposure and learning from different methods of junior development.
