Belgrano confirm European tour

Belgrano sources have confirmed that the squad will travel to Europe for a two-week pre-season training. The tune up will take place from the 5 to 20 July and it has been revealed that Belgrano will play three friendlies against top European opposition. Two matches against Porto FC and Anderlecht RSC are thought to be part of the arrangements involved in the respective transfers of Bolatti and Suarez and there will be a third match against an unnamed Dutch team.

This is a significant event in the institutional life of our club as it will be an opportunity for the players and management to rub shoulders with the uber-professionalised structures of European football. Furthermore, it will contribute to develop Belgrano's image abroad. And finally, it would be a unique chance for Belgrano supporters scattered around the world (and there are many, I can tell you!) to gather in Portugal, Belgium or Holland to support this great club.
