Thomson Sport Releases Official Brazil 2014 Short Stay Packages

Tue 17th Dec 2013 | Football Industry Events

Now the group stages draw for the 2014 FIFA World Cup has been finalised, Thomson Sport, official englandfans tour operator, has announced a series of short stay packages for England fans looking to take in the carnival atmosphere at the ultimate sporting occasion in Brazil next summer starting from £2,199pp.

As well as the “Official Follow England” package, which has been on sale for fans throughout 2013, Thomson Sport has released three new group game packages. Supporters have the chance to see the Three Lions against old rivals Italy in their opening game in Manaus, see England come up against Luis Suarez and co in Sao Paulo or the crucial final group game against Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte.

With direct flights from London Gatwick to each destination (no additional internal flights), four star accommodation, airport and match day transfers, experienced tour guides, plus a guaranteed refund should fans not secure tickets via The FA, the packages are the only official way to follow England in South America next summer.*

Tom Forshaw, Managing Director of Thomson Sport, said:  “The draw certainly raised a few eyebrows in terms of the teams we’ll face and the locations that England and our supporters will be travelling to. We have been preparing our trips for the last four years, so we know that we can allow fans to experience the carnival atmosphere in a country that lives, sleeps and breathes the beautiful game. 

“We are the only tour operator to offer direct flights to both Manaus and Belo Horizonte and our packages also include airport and match transfers, which can be difficult and expensive to arrange locally, plus we offer a full money back guarantee should supporters not secure match tickets.

“We have already seen huge demand for our packages with our “Official Follow England” package and now the draw has been made, we’re delighted to reveal these further bespoke packages to give fans flexibility to experience a once-in-a-lifetime sporting occasion.”
