Information Orby Friendly Event and Varberg Information
Players will have a chance to adjust to the Swedish style of play and for many it will be their first taste of a true International match. Participants learn the rules, the customs and become immersed in an environment similar to what the Gothia Cup will offer but on a much smaller scale. IFK Orby has been very hospitable to Ryerson Soccer over the years and the relationships that have been formed allow the participants to experience Sweden as “locals” as they eat, shop and begin to feel comfortable.
Participants will then recover from the matches by strolling along the beach in the charming and popular summer resort city of Varberg, Sweden. Varberg is more heavily populated than Orby and gives the participants a chance to experience some of the Swedish culture. Participants will tour the Varberg Fortress which was erected in the 1280s as part of a chain of military establishments along the west coast. The shopping and sightseeing offers participants some free time to hang out on the beach and roam the fortress corridors.
