About SportsVest

SportsVest is a sports tour designed by student travel and event specialists with student interests at the heart of what we do. We aim to bring our extensive knowledge of student sports tours together with our unique background in the wider events and festival market to make the perfect tour. SportsVest has grown year on year, so much that each year we have people itching and even waiting to get on… Make sure you get your team signed up so you don’t miss out on the tour of a lifetime!

Understanding you
and your society

Working with clubs and universities for several years, along with many of the team coming from university sports backgrounds, we have been able to shape the event perfectly for students and universities alike. Helping give students the best possible tour experience and make memories for life, whilst ensuring university staff members have the confidence in the organisation of the event is the crux of what we do!
