GF Football offers tours to the USA, New Zealand and the UK for the ultimate football experience. 

GF Football has many years of experience in providing world soccer tours, with top level relationships in the USA, UK and New Zealand. 

For over 20 years, Gary French Football has also helped over 50 players obtain scholarships to play and study in various colleges in the USA. Some of these players are now playing in the A league and Matilda's.

Gary spent 12 years coaching in the United States where he established a broad network of key people in the soccer community. The first two years were spent with Midwest Soccer Academy in Michigan, which is a Dutch Academy run by Klaas De Boer and he hired some of the best coaches from Holland including former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen. 

After coming back to Australia Gary was employed by Football Queensland as a development officer before being appointed as the inaugural Technical Director for Palm Beach Soccer Club. In 2014, Palm Beach Men’s team won the QLD NPL title and made the quarter-finals of the Westfield FFA Cup before being eliminated by the Central Coast Mariners. That same year Gary coached the Palm Beach Women’s team to runners up in the Brisbane premier league and losing in the Grand Final. Gary was voted Brisbane Football Women's Coach of the year.


The tour includes staying in LA & San Diego and competing in the Surf College Cup; the biggest showcase tournament in the USA.


​Additionally, players will get to experience some of the best colleges in the US with tours to Irvine College, and San Diego State University. The tour is a great opportunity to be exposed to over 700 college coaches, play against some of the best teams in the USA and make a lot of friends on the way.

Additions that may be included on the tour are dinners with teams we play throughout the tour, visits to downtown San Diego, San Diego Harbour curise, Disney Land, La Jolla, Santa Monica and Venice Beach.​

Gary coached me for many years whilst I was playing for Gold Coast in the NPL. He showed confidence in me, making me believe in my own ability, which helped me grow and develop early on in my soccer career. Gary’s continual belief in me, his strong desire to push players to be better and his knowledge of the game has inspired me and shaped me into the player I am today!

Gary helped me in so many different ways, with my technique, mental state, stability and love for the game. Going to the surf cup in 2017 really gave me an eye opener to the fitness and strength that is needed to be a division 1 athlete, it was amazing to actually play and experience playing against good American players. I know without GF football I would have never progressed as a footballer and definitely never got the courage to move to the states.
