Tour of a Lifetime : Training Camp

In order to mold the players into a team and make final player selections, Kap organized a five week training camp with the team traveling around Spain and Morocco. The camp began in early August 1967, and was the one time owner Lamar Hunt joined the team on their tour.

During their stay in Spain, the players reported having too few practices and too much extra time on their hands, some of which was spent attending social functions and ceremonies. The team ended their training camp having played five matches, and earning three wins. This winning streak would not continue through the tour though, because of the many difficulties of traveling and the wear on the players as the number of games increased with less recovery and practice time.
