Travel provider Thomson Sport, part of one of the world’s leading leisure travel companies, TUI Travel PLC, has signed a three-year deal with Premier League champions, Manchester City FC, becoming the club’s official supplier of supporter travel. Under the terms of the relationship, Thomson Sport will provide Manchester City fans with official Match Break packages for all matches at the Etihad Stadium and a range of travel packages for European away matches.
Travel packages to UEFA EURO 2012 are now on sale via Thomson Sport offering the only way for England fans to be guaranteed match tickets. The travel packages include day trips to all three England group matches, as well as two-night packages to Kiev for the match against Sweden, and there will be both travel only and travel and ticket options available.
To meet a rising demand in the sports travel market, Thomson Sport has repositioned its brand and tripled the amount of events featured on its website. As one of the leading sports tour operators, Thomson Sport’s campaign to broaden its appeal ties in with the re-launch of thomsonsport.com.
With just under 200 days to go until UEFA Euro 2012 kicks off, Thomson Sport has seen an unprecedented 80 per cent increase in enquiries compared to the equivalent period before the 2008 UEFA European Football Championship. As licensed tour operator for the event, Thomson Sport will be operating the England and Republic of Ireland fan travel programmes to Poland and Ukraine.
With England and Ireland now assured of their places in the finals next year, Thomson Sport has confirmed it has been appointed as the licensed tour operator for UEFA Euro 2012. The contract gives Thomson Sport the official tour operating programme rights across all the qualified European territories (excluding the host countries) with access to a guaranteed allocation of match tickets.
