Football reaches fever-pitch at First Choice Holiday Villages during the World Cup
Wednesday 16, June 2010
With football fever gripping the nation for the coming month, wannabe Wayne Rooney’s and future Frank Lampard’s can now get an extra hand in honing their football skills on their family holidays this summer, thanks to First Choice and the Reebok Football Academy.
First Choice, the family holiday experts, have teamed up with the Reebok Football Academy to offer two, three and four day football courses to boys and girls as well, aged between five and 16, of all abilities, to enhance existing football skills or simply have a kick-around and learn the basics of the game. Sessions are given by UEFA qualified and Football Association accredited coaches on top of the range Astroturf pitches, who aim to improve young players’ technique and ability, with their new skills being tested in a match at the end of each two hour session. And throughout the World Cup the coaches will be organising special tournaments so participants can grab a slice of the action.
It’s a great way for budding footballing stars to get their football fix while on their summer holiday, as well as an exciting way to meet new friends and have lots of fun. For taking part, all participants receive a Reebok Players pack, consisting of a training shirt and a water bottle, plus the chance to impress their mates with their new skills when they get home.
And on top of that – all World Cup matches will be shown in the bars in all eight Holiday Villages throughout the tournament, so guests can cheer on England right to the final!
First Choice offers family holidays to Lanzarote staying seven nights at the 4 Sun Holiday Village Flamingo Beach, one of the properties featuring the Reebok Football Academy, from £449 per adult, and from £359 for the first child and £439 for the second child, based on two adults and two children sharing on an all inclusive basis, departing from Manchester on 4th July.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
