Thomas Cook Sport launch complete World Cup package

Thomas Cook Sport has launched the complete package for Spurs fans to follow the team all the way to the 2010 World Cup Final.


Thomas Cook Sport has launched the complete package for Spurs fans to follow the team all the way to the 2010 World Cup Final.

With the new 33-night package featuring tickets to eight matches, including both semi-finals and the final, fans on the trip will follow England across South Africa to see the team's quest to end 44 years of hurt - hopefully with the likes of Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Aaron Lennon all in Fabio Capello's squad.

This new package is the latest in Thomas Cook Sport's programme of trips to the World Cup, and with flight/accommodation only, hotels and full packages, options are available to both fans that successfully received tickets in the ballot or need a complete package including official match tickets.

Danny Talbot, Managing Director at Thomas Cook Sport said: "After the initial surge when the draw was announced in December, we're now seeing more interest in flights and hotels following the closure of the ticket ballot. With flights from £680, we've secured some of the best prices in the market.

"We still have packages on sale, including additional trips for the first game against the USA after unprecedented demand from England's fans. The ever increasing confidence in England being successful in their group means that we're now seeing Spurs fans requesting trips that give them the best chance of seeing the team in the latter stages.

"After initially selling all of our ultimate seven-match packages that followed England from group stage to the final, we've now launched a limited 33 night package, from £11,500, which includes eight World Cup matches. Covering every round of the tournament, including both semi-finals and the 2010 World Cup Final, the trip takes in the best of South Africa with all flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban included."

Thomas Cook has a range of flights, hotels and full packages available, for more information visit - CLICK HERE - or call 0208 739 2360.
