Who We Are
Teachers and Coaches First.
American Pride Events was founded in 2018 with the goal of providing truly exceptional sports travel experiences to Australia. President and owner, Ed Ryder, is a veteran of both college coaching and the international sports event and management industry. Since 1991 he's taken teams literally all over the world, including 20 times Down Under.
Some may call us an "elite boutique" sports tour company because we play national teams and specialize in such a particular market but, to us, that sounds expensive. We pride ourselves in offering the best tours to Australia at the best prices . . . and most importantly, at the best value-for-money. These tours are way more than sports to us, they are designed to be one of the greatest sports, cultural, and educational experiences of a lifetime.
We're teachers and coaches first, tour operators second.
