Natal, the capital city of Rio Grande do Norte State, is home to ABC Futebol Clube, one of the top clubs in the northeast of Brazil. ABC F.C., founded on June 29, 1915, has won fifty state titles and is known for its vibrant fans.

Teams can expect to train twice a day at ABC F.C. The number of friendly games depends upon request. Players also have the opportunity to see the professional’s training session as well as a game at the ABC Stadium (if schedule permits). To experience a professional game in Brazil is usually the highlight of most trips.

Players will not only train at ABC F.C., but will also have the opportunity to play beach soccer in some of Natal’s most pristine beaches. Indoor soccer games against local teams are also available upon request.

Players will be accommodated at Lainas Place Hotel. This oceanfront hotel is only five minutes from the training center and is located in Natal’s most famous beach, Ponta Negra Beach (Black Point Beach). The hotel has a friendly staff and offers nutritious meals designed especially for the teams.

Natal is filled with tourism. Visits to the historical Forte do Reis Magos, to government buildings, to local restaurants, to the city Cathedral, to touristic shops, to an all-day dune buggy ride, and to numerous beaches along the coastline are just a few things to do while not training. Teams never run out of things to do!

Also, opportunities to give donations to local orphanages and nursing homes are available upon team requests. Players not only improve their soccer skills while in Brazil, but also learn life-long lessons as they visit these orphanages and nursing homes.

Whether a player wants to improve his soccer skills, play against tough competition both on the field and at the beach, or wants to experience the Brazilian culture, a trip to the “Sun City of Brazil” is ideal for players of all skills and interests. With an average temperature of 85 degrees, Natal provides perfect year-round weather for training, playing games, and tourism.
