As an Official Tour Operator for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, Emirates, will be offering a number of tailor-made travel packages that will include flights, accommodation, ground transportation and match tickets.

The airline has also added a ‘follow-your-team’ component to the tour packages. This means that supporters no longer need to wait until their chosen team qualifies, as this package is not only refundable if their country fails to make it, but guarantees fans gold-dust tickets for each of their team’s matches, right up to the final on July 11th.

Emirates is offering the opportunity to follow one of 20 teams: Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain and USA.

The uncertainty facing fans is heightened by not knowing where their team will be playing, but no matter which city they are based in for the group stage, or where they end up playing in the knock-out rounds, the Emirates package – which includes flights, match tickets, accommodation and ground transport – covers every eventuality.

Thierry Weil, FIFA Director Marketing Division, said, “At FIFA we are confident that our partner Emirates will offer FIFA World Cup fans with the perfect travel solution to be in South Africa to support their team.

“The FIFA World Cup, which kicks off at South Africa’s Soccer City Stadium...., is one event that should not be missed and there is surely no better way that to travel to the tournament than enjoying the world class hospitality and service on board Emirates.”

Emirates is offering football fans the choice of five daily flights into South Africa from its network on six continents, with the options of travelling to Johannesburg, which hosts 15 matches including the opening match and final; Cape Town, host city of eight matches and Durban, which is home to seven FIFA World Cup matches.

Emirates’ partnership with FIFA began at the 2006 FIFA World Cup when it became a sponsor of the prestigious sporting event. Following on from the success of the tournament in Germany, Emirates then cemented its status as an Official FIFA Partner up to and including the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
