Join the celebration

Thomas Cook, official travel partner of Manchester United, is launching a new campaign designed to tackle the frostbite of United fans, bringing a holiday and football celebration to Old Trafford.

Fans at Manchester United’s game against Aston Villa on Tuesday 1st February will have the chance to join in the celebration by re-creating Eric Cantona’s famous goal celebration in the N2 North stand car park before the game. The goal celebration was voted as the club’s best goal celebration (from Thomas Cook nominations) by visitors last week, click here to review the nominees.

Attempts at the well-known celebration will be filmed and fans can vote for their favourite by joining Thomas Cook Sport’s Facebook page, with the best voted celebrator getting the chance to put their hotshot skills to use by playing on the hallowed turf at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

To bring an extra bit of carnival holiday atmosphere and excitement to the stadium, Thomas Cook will be giving fans the chance to win a selection of official club and money can’t buy prizes. Just look out for the sombreros and Hawaiian garlands and don’t forget to join in with the Samba Band!

Thomas Cook Sport offers a holiday club discount to all Manchester United fans, available by asking in any of Thomas Cook’s 800 retail stores nationwide.

For more information, visit or call the sales team on 0870 752 0924.
