António Cunha
With a degree in Law, António is a former rugby national team player with 54 caps, and captain of the 7-a-side national team, having also played for the Barbarians and the Penguins. A sports fanatic, António brings the drive, the focus and the strategy to our game. We keep telling him that this is a completely different game, but he loves to be in the ruck and in the scrum. So, yes, hands-on, full speed, 24/7.

Welcome

A Message from our CEO

At Move Sports, we're powered by our passion for sports.

I believe in the transformative power of sports, be it with football and rugby youth athletes, pro teams from multiple sports or company employees enjoying a footgolf tournament.

Sports is always a celebration of the human body and the human soul working together. Sports make us bigger, better - not only physically, but mentally too. 

Let's share our love for sports.

The Move Sports Creed

The Game Changers

You definitely want to book a sports tour or a training camp with Move Sports. Being Portuguese, we take it personally. We have “go the extra mile” in our DNA.

You can count on our professionalism for all the essentials. But expect us to always be on the lookout for that extra detail that fits in so well with your program.

It can be a technical training session with Ronaldo’s former coach. It can be a PhD (a Physical Deluxe) with the guy that took Portugal’s U20 Rugby team to the top. It can be those gourmet burgers on the seafront that your team is dreaming about post-session.

In a nutshell, we don't rest until someone on the tour posts “#movesports #TheGameChangers It was awesome, mate!" on social media.

This is a commitment. We take it personally.

Cosmopolitan, fluent in Globish and a set of other world languages, with a “next challenge, boss?” daily attitude, our crew embodies the Move Sports Creed.

Expect serious sports stuff.
