Wittlich Exchange

For over 21 years we have twinned with a German Club– SLV Wittlich – with whom we have, every year, organised a trip (taking it in turns for them to visit us or us to visit them) for youth and adult teams.

The town of Wittlich is the seat of the Bernkastel-Wittlich district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Its historic town centre and the beauty of the surrounding countryside make the town a centre for tourism in southwest Germany.

The week always revolves around football, players stay with host families and are generally spoilt rotten – long friendships have been formed and this has now become a bond that has passed onto a third generation. Sadly, the main organisers from the Wittlich side – Roland Heinrich – passed away suddenly this year (2017) as did our own key organiser Anne but the clubs will continue to honour the tradition in their name.

If you would like to find our more about the upcoming trip to Wittlich in April 2018 – contact the club via your coach or email the club secretary at ebufc@btinternet.com
