You go to Marbella for a training camp.
The Football Association (FAI) has confirmed three friendly matches for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 game in Spain this summer.
Jim Crawford visits Switzerland on May 30.
They will face the Australian Olympic team on June 5.
The camp is in Marbella.
Director Jim Crawford said: “We have decided to launch a number of games within the international time frame in June so that players can better prepare for our qualifications.”
“It simply came to our notice then. All three teams present an exciting and difficult opposition to our team, and the staff and I would love to return with the players to test ourselves against that opposition. ”
Crawford had previously talked about the importance of having multiple games in the International Summer Window to help keep teams together.
I have seen the 2019 Toulon Championship provide a platform for many players participating in the Under-21 team to build their club and the confidence to play on this level.
“While we have these games at Marbella, we have more than 10 days of a competent group protocol to get together, work hard, work on our game style and get ready for September.”
All games will take place behind closed doors without spectators entering.
