Registration for Candice Wiggins Overseas Experience Now Open
Palo Alto, CA ΓΆΒ€" Minnesota Lynx star guard Candice Wiggins and NetWorks Sports Consulting announced today that registration is now open for the inaugural Candice Wiggins Overseas Experience. Fans can register at the tour's website, www.travelwithcandice.com . The 10-day/8-night trip through Spain will take place this fall from October 21 ΓΆΒ€" 30, hitting five of the most beautiful cities in Spain while allowing guests to experience the essence of the Spanish culture - all under the guidance of Wiggins.
The Candice Wiggins Overseas Experience is a concept that Wiggins came up with after spending the off-season of her rookie WNBA season playing in Valencia, Spain for the perennially talented Ros Casares organization led by General Manager Carme Lluveras.
"My time in Spain was so magical," said Wiggins. "The passion for women's basketball overseas is so great, that I felt the need to share the experience with my friends, family, and fans from back home."
In addition to a stop in Valencia to catch a EuroLeague or Spanish League game (if schedule permits), the tour will make stops in Seville, Granada, and Cordoba. Beginning today, Wiggins will provide her fans a glimpse of what to expect on the trip in a regular blog for the USA Today. The blog will continue through October as she documents the group's journey through Spain.
Wiggins and NetWorks Sports will be working with Travel International Sports ( www.TIS.com ) to provide first-class tour arrangements for guests.
"We are excited to help bring Candice's dream to life," says Angela Taylor, President of NetWorks Sports Consulting. "She sincerely cares about her fans and as a result has created an amazing one-of-a-kind experience that will give her fans unforgettable and lasting memories."
Prices start at $2,495 (not including airfare) and include a variety of accommodations. The deadline for placing a deposit to reserve a spot is March 31st.
