"The Football Association would like to pass on our huge thanks to everyone at Champneys Springs for their support in our teams’ efforts to prepare for the London 2012 Olympics. It was the first time in 52 years a men’s GB football team has competed at the Games, and the first time ever for a Women’s squad, so to have the platform of preparation is key to everyone involved. For both squads it has been a perfect way to begin the build up to the tournament, and we are extremely grateful for everything that has been done for us."
Stuart Mawhinney, Senior Communications Manager, The FA Group
"Champneys Springs is an ideal location for our pre-season training camp. The facilities are first class as is the level of service and hospitality that is provided, and we have benefitted from our visits there in the last two summers. It’s a major part of our pre-season planning and we would have no hesitation in returning for a third visit." Matt Porter, Chief Executive, Leyton Orient Football Club
“Our annual trips to Champneys have formed a vital part of our pre-season preparation over the last two years. The resort not only offers us first class facilities in which to train and condition our players, but the surroundings provide an excellent environment in which the team and staff can mentally prepare for the season ahead.” Russell Slade, Manager, Leyton Orient Football Club
