Manchester City Fly With Thomson Sport

Wed 9th Jul 2014 | Marketing & PR

Travel provider Thomson Sport  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.

Nathan Wilson, Sales and Marketing Director for TUI Event Group, said, “This is a fantastic deal for the division and the Thomson Sport Travel brand.

“Manchester City Football Club is innovative and success driven - attributes that we at TUI Travel consider to be key drivers for our business growth. We are very excited about the potential and looking forward to delivering exceptional travel experiences for the club’s supporters”.

Danny Wilson, Director of Sales, Service & Operations for Manchester City, commented, “As the Club’s profile continues to grow in new markets around the world, it was important to work with a company that has a robust global network of connections.

“Through teaming up with Thomson Sport, we can ensure our supporters will be provided with the best possible service, whether following the team at home or abroad."

Legendary Manchester artist and City fan, Johnny Marr is to headline Manchester City’s season launch party – City Live. 

Taking place on August 14 at Manchester Central, City Live is set to be even bigger, better and bluer than before.  Manchester City has once again enlisted the support of lifelong Blue and funny man, Jason Manford.

Commenting on City Live, Johnny Marr said, “Like Manchester, City has always been a Club steeped in music.  Going right back to Maine Road, there was always a couple of musicians or bands from across the City in the stands.  It’s the same today at the Etihad.

“City fans just know how to have a good time, so to play to a packed Manchester Central, will not only be a great party to mark the start of this season, but also a special moment for me personally.”   

Tickets for City Live are available from £15 (Cat 3), £20 (Cat  2) and  £25 (Cat 1) online at www.mcfc.co.uk/tickets, by telephone on 0161 444 1894 (option 1, option 1, option 2)* and to personal callers at the Stadium Ticket Office located behind the stage in BT City Square.
