Twedex Unveiled as Global Travel Partners for The World School Games Event Series

Trans World Educational Experiences (Twedex) was today unveiled as Global Travel Partner of The World Schools Games Event Series in 2019.

The World School Games Event Series will see schools from across the globe compete in a range of sports competitions at various age categories, in a quest to unearth the World Champions of school sport. With the flagship World School Games event, staged annually in Dubai, set for expansion in 2019 to 48 schools competing at separate U11 and U13 events in athletics, swimming and football, the introduction of the Event Series aims to broaden the scope of competitive school sport on the world stage.

The world’s number one University for sport, Loughborough (UK), was last week announced as the host venue for the inaugural World Schools Netball Cup in June. The World Schools Football Cup will be staged in Barcelona (Spain) in October, as well as The World Schools Rugby Cup and The World Schools Cricket Cup in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

Scott Macfarlane, of Twedex, is privileged to be involved in the expansion of one of the most exciting youth sports competitions in the world.

“The World School Games Event Series provides a unique stage for the world’s best school athletes to compete with and against each other, in a fun and competitive series of events, at truly world class facilities. At Twedex we are always looking for innovative ways to give young people the best sports travel opportunities possible. It’s the perfect fit.”

“We’re very proud to work in collaboration with The World School Games and will use our organisation’s skillset to enhance the travel and logistics experience of the travelling teams for each event in 2019.”

Adam Kerr, of The World School Games, is delighted to team up with Twedex ahead of a hugely exciting year for both organisations.

“To have secured the services of Twedex as Global Travel Partners is a terrific coup for The World School Games. Over 5,000 athletes from more than 40 countries will take part in a World School Games event in 2019. The travel and logistics at global events require a huge amount of expertise and planning, and our expansion in 2019 will mean we have more athletes than ever travelling across the world to take part in our events.”

Thurso and Wick Become First Ever Group at Wanda Metropolitano

Wick High School and Thurso High School made history this week as they became the first ever Trans World groups to tour Atlético Madrid’s new Wanda Metropolitano home.

The 68,000-seater stadium opened for matches in mid-September, but the all-access tour was only launched this week meaning that the students and staff from Wick and Thurso were among the very first members of the public to go behind the scenes.

The tour takes in the brand-new press conference rooms, the dressing rooms and players tunnel. It gives groups the chance to follow in the footsteps of some of the biggest names in world football and take a seat in Diego Simeone’s dugout.

Michael Pentland, Regional Manager of Trans World Educational Experiences, said he was delighted to be able to give the schools the opportunity to be the very first group to witness the wonders of the Metropolitano.

“We are so proud to be able to give students the chance to get up close and personal with the biggest clubs in the world. Atlético have done a tremendous job of creating a behind-the-scenes tour which truly encapsulates what life is like as a player here at the Metropolitano and its brilliant that the students from Wick and Thurso have been among the first to experience it.”

“We are lucky to have a close relationship with the club which has allowed us to give Wick and Thurso access to the tour before any other group. It was certainly one of the highlights of an action-packed trip and something which we hope the students will remember for a long time.” 

The schools were in Madrid as part of a Spanish Football Development tour with Trans World which included training sessions at Real Madrid’s first-team training complex, challenge matches against local opposition, a visit to the headquarters of the Spanish FA and a trip to the Santiago Bernabéu to watch Zinedine Zidane’s side put three goals past Eibar without reply.
