Day 4 saw a less intense day in terms of training and playing matches but was an opportunity for students to discover the history of FC Porto. The students started the day by having a stadium tour of Estadio do Dragao, which is the home of FC Porto. Students were able to have their photo taken pitch side, sit in the dug outs as well as sample the media room, away changing rooms as well as the executive boxes. After the stadium tour students then went into the Museum of FC Porto to discover the history of the club and view all the trophies and major wins that the club have had over its 100 year history. The students were then able to visit the club shop before having lunch in one of the executive boxes and were joined by their four coaches that had been working with the students all tour. Students then had a couple of hours free time in a local shopping centre before heading to their final training session, which was held at one of the main Dragon Force FC Porto hubs. The U14 academy players had just finished their training session before our students took to the pitches. The training session finished with the senior students playing the younger students with some of the coaches joining in on the action. Presentation of certificates were then awarded and the students then represented the coaches with a small gift to say thank you. Players of the tour were also presented with an FC Porto boot bag and these went to Yezen and Rhys. Students then headed back to the hotel for a late dinner before room inspections and lights out.
