Michigan football announces 2023 annual team trip location

·1 min read

Michigan football made headlines in the college football world for years by doing something teams just don’t do — at least not football programs. Jim Harbaugh took his team abroad, where players could learn about different cultures while experiencing different cultures.

It started in 2017, when Harbaugh took the team to Rome, Italy. The team actually held practices there on top of sightseeing and learning. The following year, the team went to Paris and then South Africa. Then COVID-19 hit in 2020, and the trips were put on hold. But with the world opening back up, the team got its feet wet again by traveling the state of Michigan last summer.

Now, the program is on the move again. The team announced via video on Twitter that it will head to not one location, but multiple places this spring: Washington D.C., New York City, Gettysburg (Pa.), as well as Canton and Cleveland, Ohio.

It will be interesting to see how the logistics work and how long the trip will be given that generally the team has mostly stuck to one area or region — the trip to Normandy while in France and the state of Michigan tour, aside.

This will be the second domestic trip for the team, although it could be counted as the third: Jim Harbaugh took the program to IMG Academy in Florida for the first week of spring practice in 2016.
