Hear from Nate Marchand
I have played soccer for nearly my entire life since I was 5 years old. One of my coworkers and I used to play soccer together growing up, so I actually have the sport of soccer to thank for helping me to work my way into sports tourism!
Having lived and worked in education abroad, it seemed like a no-brainer to pursue a career in sports tourism where I could share my experiences and interests with others.
No two days at Navigo are alike. Working at Navigo allows me to solve unique challenges and ensure the best experience possible for everyone we travel with! I especially love running tours and sharing my passion with others. It’s amazing how well you can get to know everyone on tour in just over a week.
Some of my favorite tour experiences have definitely been the moments you can’t plan or prepare for. Randomly bumping into players from the USWNT around Lyon, France during the 2019 Women’s World Cup as we were sightseeing was definitely one of those unexpected thrills!
