The Gulf of Antalya in Turkey offers perfect training conditions during the winter months. That is why the region is the training camp El Dorado at this time of year: mild climate and perfectly maintained natural grass pitches offer ambitious football teams ideal conditions for a successful training camp.
When is the perfect time to travel to Turkey?
Due to the mild climate on the Gulf of Antalya, Turkey offers the perfect conditions for a winter training camp in the months of January to March. The courses are tended and maintained by greenkeepers all year round. In summer, temperatures often exceed 40°. During this time, the courses are only watered and fertilised. To protect them, however, they are not played on. From early autumn, the pitch is freshly sown. After that, the football pitches are in their usual spectacular condition.
Do you train on natural or artificial grass pitches in Turkey?
Training takes place exclusively on natural grass pitches. As there are usually several pitches available per hotel, it is always possible to change pitches in order to prevent overloading the grass.
