Chelsea FC signs Thomas Cook Sport

25th Jul 2006

Thomas Cook Sport has signed with Chelsea
Football Club to become the official travel partner of the double
Premiership champions. The deal was announced as Chelsea FC flew out to the United States for
pre-season training and a prestigious friendly match against the MLS All
Stars. The three-year deal will begin at the start of the Premiership

As a result of the partnership Thomas Cook will also become a platinum
sponsor of Chelsea, joining a team of elite brands already associated
with the club.


As part of this exclusive partnership, Thomas Cook Sport will be
responsible for all team and officials’ travel in Europe and
internationally, corporate travel, day-to-day business travel and
supporter travel both in the UK and overseas.



More travel options and services for fans will be made available than in
the past, and the new deal means the consolidation of all the travel for
Chelsea with one, blue-chip partner.


Danny Talbot, Director of Thomas Cook Sport, said: “As the UK’s
favourite travel brand we are delighted to be involved in this
partnership with one of Europe’s top football teams.


“It not only cements Thomas Cook Sport’s commitment to the sporting
industry as a whole, but in particular allows us to offer an unbeatable
standard of travel options for fans to support their club across the
world alongside providing an excellent service to the Chelsea team and
its management.”


Chelsea’s Business Affairs Director Paul Smith said: “Thomas Cook is one
of the most respected and successful brands in travel, so a partnership
with Chelsea is a natural one.

“Not only will this lead to a better, and more varied, service for the
club and its fans but Thomas Cook will also enjoy a deeper relationship
with Chelsea through their platinum sponsorship.”
