Thomas Cook Sport Launches Trip to Watch the 2010 World Cup Final

PETERBOROUGH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) - Thomas Cook Sport, Participating Tour Operator of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has opened sales of its World Cup Final package, available from £5,550 per person.

Almost 95,000 fans will be there for the Final, which takes place at Soccer City in Johannesburg on Sunday 11 July, with what is likely to be the world's most-watched sporting event of the year - in 2006 the Italy v France final gained a global TV audience of 715.1 million viewers. 

Danny Talbot, managing director of Thomas Cook Sport said, "We're very excited to offers fans this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With extremely limited numbers available, fans have the chance to be there at the pinnacle of tournament and experience this fantastic country but these tickets will sell out fast and this offer will not be repeated." 

The trip is for 6 nights, and includes British Airways Economy flights, two nights in the air, four nights at the Entabeni Game Reserve and features the chance to experience Game Drives. All transfers to and from the World Cup Final are included and the package includes a Category 1 Match ticket. 

To book, call 020 8739 2360.
