Thomas Cook Gives Chinese Manchester United Fans Boost

Wed 4th Jan 2017 | Marketing & PR

Manchester United fans in China will be able to visit the Theatre of Dreams thanks to an official Old Trafford Match Break experience being offered by Thomas Cook Sport.

The opportunity has arisen via a new exclusive agreement with the club’s Official Travel Services Provider, Thomas Cook Sport, part of Thomas Cook.

United fans can get official Match Break packages for every home game at Old Trafford through Thomas Cook China, a joint venture between Thomas Cook and Fosun, the leading Chinese investment conglomerate.

By extending its current deal with Thomas Cook Sport into China, Manchester United is giving Chinese fans the opportunity to visit Old Trafford in person.

As well as home Match Breaks, Thomas Cook Sport also offers a range of supporter trips for fans supporting United away from Old Trafford, including European and domestic league matches.

Manchester United Group Managing Director Richard Arnold said: "Our partnership with Thomas Cook is a long-standing one and we’re delighted it’s been extended to China, where we have more United fans than anywhere else in the world.

“It’s great for us that the packages on offer will give fans the opportunity to enjoy an official visit to Old Trafford."

Alessandro Dassi, General Manager of Thomas Cook China said: "With a fan base of over 100 million Manchester United’s popularity in China has no equal.

“Thomas Cook has been a partner to the club in the UK and Europe for over a decade and we are delighted to extend this exclusive partnership into China.

“Fans across the country will have an opportunity to enjoy matches at Old Trafford with the convenience and peace of mind of a personalised travel package organised by a trusted travel company."
