Do you want to be on our team?

OUR

SPORTING PROPOSITION

 

The partnership we have formed with Sir Stanley Matthews Travel means we’re able to offer you the very best of both worlds – market-leading travel management expertise with a thorough understanding of the nuances and unique demands of sports travel. We’re able to support every aspect of travel for the UK’s top sporting institutions, delivering outstanding solutions across the entirety of your travel programme.

Sports travel is like no other. We get that. Whether it’s mastering the complexity of arranging travel for dozens of umpires to cover county cricket over an entire summer’s worth of fixtures, or creating the perfect Caribbean holiday for the Premier League’s most demanding striker, we’ve got it covered. 

WE HAVE EVERYTHING

in the locker

Officials

Coordinating match officials’ itineraries and travel movements can be a logistical challenge. It’s a challenge we relish. 

Team Travel

Ensuring your team arrives in peak condition to not only play, but to win, is what we see as our responsibility. It’s all part of the Gray Dawes Sports service. 

Family Travel

A winning team is influenced and motivated by many things, not least the loved ones of those involved. We care for the ones you care about. 

Disabled Travel

With a sensitive respect for the needs of less able-bodied sportsmen and women, our travel consultants ensure all the right boxes are ticked to meet their demands. 

Business Travel

Our award-winning and innovative approach to corporate travel provides superior service delivered with a personal touch from your dedicated team.

Fan Travel

Moving your legions of travelling supporters safely and efficiently around the world takes tenacity, experience and understanding. We have all three. 

VIP & Concierge Services

When the game is won and it’s time for a little R&R, our luxury leisure travel consultants will custom create the perfect solution to care for your sporting stars. 

Meetings & Events

We believe that experience is everything, both yours and ours. Our MICE Team delivers a creative combination of logistics, administration, inventive flair and negotiation. 

Promotional & Sponsorship Tours

Managing the travel of people is one thing, coordinating the global movement of promotional activities and kit is something else. We do both, perfectly.
