Michigan football reveals locations for annual spring team trip
Michigan is hitting the road from some time away from Ann Arbor to bond as a program. What cities are the Wolverines headed to, and could they be arriving in your neck of the woods in the coming weeks?
According to Michigan’s Twitter account, the Wolverines will travel to Washington D.C., New York City, Gettysburg (Pa.), as well as Canton and Cleveland, Ohio. Beyond sightseeing and visiting historical landmarks, Michigan will look to build on their relationship prior to the start of a hopeful promising campaign this fall.

The spring trip started back in 2017, when Jim Harbaugh took the team over in Rome, Italy. After that, trips became accustomed to the school, with the program traveling to Paris, France and parts of South Africa. After the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the trips ceased until last summer.
It’s a bonding trip for the program to become tight-nit before the season kicks off. For Michigan, relationships could be essential if it hopes to return to the College Football Playoff for a 3rd consecutive season. Last fall, the Wolverines picked up their first undefeated regular season since 1974, and 2nd B1G title under Harbaugh. Michigan was eliminated from the CFP after losing to TCU in the Fiesta Bowl.
