Covert Football Trips explained!
Covert Football Trips are Mystery Football Weekends to Europe where you don’t know the Country, City or Football Match you are visiting until a few weeks before your trip. When you book, we send you Mystery Match ticket stubs so you have something tangible to use as a gift.
We will send you Mystery ticket stubs when you book.
Where could you find yourself visiting?
Covert Football Trips offer many different packages so you can reduce, or widen, the number of places you could visit. For example the Fortuna and Sparta Packages are Mystery Football Weekends which guarantee you a trip to Germany, Italy or Spain for a top tier match of football.
The Fortuna Package is a three night football weekend to Germany, Spain or Italy
Can I choose the country?
Many people want to experience Germany for many reasons. For some it’s an affinity to The Bundesliga, for others it’s the fan culture and for many it’s about visiting great cities too such as Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf and Leipzig, to name just a few. If that’s something you like the idea of, our TOR! Package is a two-match Mystery Football Trip to Germany!

How random is the choice?
The Sporting Package offers the widest mystery experience where you could be sent to one of fourteen different countries including Austria, Belgium, France and Czech Republic as well as many others.
I’ve already visited many grounds
Don’t worry, we can make sure we don’t send you to a stadium you wish to avoid. During the booking process you are asked which clubs you wish to avoid and we will ensure you meet those requests.
How big are the matches?
We have access to many tickets including some of the biggest matches. Recently customers enjoyed the Milan Derby at The San Siro which was an incredible experience for those who attended leaving us a review titled “Trip of a lifetime to San Siro”
Seated or Standing?
Another choice you can make is to let us know the sort of position you would like inside the stadium. Some people enjoy the comfort of a nice seat along the long-side of the stadium which often present the best view, whilst others enjoy standing amongst fans on their Covert Football Trip.
You can opt for a preference to stand with the fans, instead of sitting.
Where do flights depart from?
This is the clever part – simply select the airport region when booking and we will send you from one of your local airports. Having several airports available allows us greater scope to create an awesome event for your group. Once you know the airport, we can help you organise car-parking here.
When is the trip revealed?
The destination of your Mystery Football Weekend is normally revealed two to three weeks in advance of the trip. This is often due to us finalising the finer details of the trip, sometimes waiting on confirmed match-dates and kick-0ff times close to the event.
The “reveal” process is a postal package which will include all the documentation you need for the trip. We have on some occasions met the group and presented this face-to-face which allows us to talk through your trip details and to answer any questions – we can even organise a late reveal if you want to keep the suspense for longer!
Is my trip protected?
Covert Football Trips is a travel agent and hold an ATOL license which means should the travel firm you are going with collapse, you are completely protected. Our ATOL number is 11688.
Do I pay in advance?
The great thing about a Covert Football Trip is that you can pre-book your Mystery Football Weekend in advance – we are already taking bookings for the 2024/25 season.
When booking more than 60 days in advance, you are given the option of paying an extremely low £19 per person deposit which can be very helpful, with the balance due up to 45 days before you travel.
What quality is the accommodation?
Our motto is to only ever book something we would be comfortable with ourselves. We ensure you are in good quality hotels with good reviews. All hotel rooms will have private bathrooms and would be of 3 or 4 Star quality. We squeeze as much value as possible into your trip – we may even surprise you by including breakfast!
Why use Covert Football Trips?
We have confidence in building unrivalled Mystery Football Trips and are the original company to offer this type of trip. Our attention to detail is something we take extremely seriously and even go as far as bar/restaurant recommendations in your reveal pack (and sometimes even make bookings for you!)
Not only that, we love to get you involved. It may be that a higher quality hotel becomes available, and sometimes where the choice is available, we will ask if you want baggage extra’s added so that you are travelling in the way you would like. We are human and we can have a chat with you!
