A dedicated Kuoni website for national football teams looking to source accommodation and training grounds for the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament in France has gone live.
The official tournament accommodation supplier is looking to capitalise on France’s position as the world’s number one tourist destination and its network of hotels.
The website lists 66 potential base camps, a combination of selected hotels and training grounds, chosen from stadiums and training centres used by the country’s professional and amateur clubs.
The site maps training grounds and accommodation in relation to the 10 destinations where matches will be staged: Bordeaux, Lens-Agglo, Lille-Métropole, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.
Users can narrow their search based on ground and hotel facilities, as well as star rating and style of hotel, and can also find practical data on local climate and distances between match locations.
National football federations using the site can also log in to a dedicated area to see additional team-specific information and to print out key data.
Kuoni Group chief executive Peter Meier said: “Thanks to our local knowledge and longstanding relationships with providers, we have sought out accommodation in quiet, pleasant areas that are easy to secure and offer ideal conditions to help teams play at their best.
“All will meet the needs and expectations of each of UEFA’s 54 member associations.”
Kuoni was the official accommodation agency for UEFA EURO 2008 in Austria and Switzerland.
