Just like Sir Stanley Matthews himself, we know that getting the small things right can make the biggest difference.
His commitment to marginal gains, such as in his diet and training regimes, is mirrored by what we see as our responsibility to overdeliver, even when it comes to the smallest details of your experience.
We understand the nuances and unique demands of sports travel, so your consultant is on hand throughout each phase of your travel plans- and at any time you need them.
Our team has dealt with a range of complex situations, including the issues and delays that come with large groups travelling separately, so we are confident about our ability to deal with even the largest, last minute setbacks.
The ethos of our business is inspired by Sir Stanley’s famous ‘Matthews Move’, because we appreciate the importance of being adaptable and able to react to changes quickly.
Our partnership with Gray Dawes Sports means that we’re able to combine our old-school work ethic and commitment to quality with a cutting edge delivery model.
As proud contributors and founders of the Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching Foundation, we support its global aim to get young people active and playing sport.

“I have been using Sir Stanley Matthews Travel Services for the past 7 years. Since my journeys tend to be very last minute they have always managed somehow to ensure that I get the best possible service 24/7, and even do their upmost to get my preferred seat allocation. Over the years I found them to be very reliable, efficient and polite, even when it comes to using air miles which is always a challenge!” David Dein MBE, International Ambassador to the FA
