Riga is the capital of Latvia and considered the most cosmopolitan of the three Baltic capitals. The summer months in Riga are the best time to visit, with the beer terraces open and live music playing until the early hours. Riga has some of the best value 4* hotels in Europe, making it a great choice for a team who want a little more luxury on their tour.
Football in Latvia hit its peak in 2004 as they qualified for their first major tournament. Unfortunately they have not repeated this achievement, however football remains a popular sport with large numbers of amateur teams competing in local leagues during the summer months.
Games are mostly played on synthetic fields, however some grass fields are available by special request. We will always provide fixtures on the best available synthetic fields where hard ground and AG boots can be worn. Games can be arranged at night under flood lights and during the day, depending on how many games you want to play during your tour.
