England Squad Football Team Euro 2012
As recently reported in both The Times and on the BBC website – by journalists who were able to see paperwork on an agenda handed to new England boss Roy Hodgson, during his appointment as manager by the FA last week – it’s now been revealed that the entire England Squad and their entourage will be spending their first week together with Hodgson at the helm at VIVA’s long-time HOT favourite, La Cala Resort.

This will bring exceptional exposure for the Costa del Sol, since wherever the England team goes, a whole circus of Press, TV and other media are sure to follow. It couldn’t be better and along with Michelle Obama’s visit to the Coast in 2010, plus a host of other good news stories, it will give us all a shot in the arm and a much-needed confidence boost.

It’s a stunning yet well deserved coup for La Cala Resort and their entire management team. Not only the largest golf resort in Europe – with its three renowned courses, David Leadbetter Golf Academy, Hotel, Spa and of course Football Training Academy – its choice by England is a reflection of the sheer presence, standard and range of its simply outstanding facilities. And it’s evidence that the Resort’s careful and exceptional development plan, particularly over the last 15 years, is now paying off in huge dividends.

Indeed La Cala Resort is recognised as the perfect model and example to any future project in terms of offering true value and real delivery of promise for property owners, hotel guests, visiting golfers… and now of course the England squad in its entirety.
When the England players report for their 4-day La Cala Resort training camp on 21 May, it’ll be the first time Roy Hodgson actually gets to meet his team.
Well done La Cala Resort! You have a special place on the Costa del Sol map, and congratulations on being chosen by team England as the outstanding resort of choice for their European Nations Championship preparations.
