Our VIP service have played host to US football team, the New York Cosmos this week, who originally came over to play a pre-season friendly with Watford on Saturday. Unfortunately, as can be the case with pre-season football fixtures, the game was brought forward to Friday. Then it changed again. And then … they ended up playing Gillingham and Leyton Orient!
We were also lucky enough to be responsible for transferring Granada, a Spanish La Liga team, from the airport, to a training session and then onwards to a game against Watford on Saturday. Granada were unlucky to lose 2-0 to Watford and, no doubt, were happy to be taken back to the airport by us to return to sunny Spain.
As many of you know, the Emirates Cup was held on 3rd and 4th August and we also had the pleasure of looking after both the Napoli and Galatasaray teams whilst they were in London for this prestigious pre-season competition.
It has been a pleasure for us to welcome these international teams to the UK and we were privileged to be a part of their stay here. We would also like to congratulate Galatasaray on being crowned champions of this year’s tournament.
