Thomas Cook to run MU Travel

United have ended their fans' travel agreement with Cooperative Travel Sports and have signed a new deal with Thomas Cook.

It means for the next four years, the firm will provide packages for reds going to Euro away games and coaches going to domestic away games.

But according to
United's website, Eavesway still provides coaches for domestic away games, so we are seeking to clear up the situation.

Thomas Cook already provide club-endorsed flight and hotel packages for fans of Aberdeen, Aston Villa, Celtic Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City and Rangers.

Quite how this change will affect the conditions of getting to away games for ordinary reds remain to be seen.

Some are anxious that a deal to make it compulsory for fans to buy away match travel with tickets, but those are only unfounded concerns at present.

What is certain is that the European Travel Club remains in place for the 2010/11 season.

Here is Thomas Cook Sport's new United website.
