Baylor Soccer Headed Overseas for Great 10-Day Learning Experience

WACO, Texas – Baylor soccer is taking an unprecedented journey to Germany and Austria from May 16-25 to play matches, train and go sightseeing. 

A first foreign trip for the program, the 10-day venture will feature three games against German clubs, three training sessions at the best local facilities, stadium tours at Bayern Munich and Red Bull Salzburg, Bundesliga pro game tickets, sightseeing, and more.

“We are extremely excited for the chance to go overseas for multiple reasons,” said Baylor head coach Paul Jobson.  “First, it extends our spring season a little longer, which gives us more time together to prepare for fall.  It also allows us to be together to build team chemistry since we have a pretty young team.  Finally, it’s just a great life opportunity to learn more about different cultures within the game and outside of the game of soccer.  Our plan is to hopefully make this a once in every four years trip so each student-athlete who comes through the Baylor soccer program has a chance to do this.”
