Hello everybody

I don't know what verb should be used for TEAM CAMP (soccer).

Can we say:
Last year, Manchester United established a team camp in the United States.

Thank you in advance. I would be grateful if you could answer my question.

    The link in post #4 has the following text
    "Team Melli landed in Dubai this evening to set up an eight days training camp."
    In this idiom, they are not literally using tents to camp in, but rather a temporary base of operations/facilities where they can train - temporarily, because they are away from their home facilities.
