Eric Cantona launches football holidays for fans including Old Trafford and Camp Nou
The former Manchester United and France star today unveiled his Looking FC brand, which offers trips to the world’s most famous stadiums.
They include Old Trafford, where “King Eric” delighted fans with his skills and antics from 1992 to 1997, Anfield, the San Siro in Milan, Real Madrid ’s Bernabeu, Barcelona’s Camp Nou and PSG ground Parc des Princes.
Striker-turned-actor Cantona, 55, said: “I love the kind of football that makes your heart pound and the stadium shake.
“Our idea was to create the most passionate football trips on earth, with charisma and soul.
‘’Everything today is optimised for price, we wanted to optimise for passion.”
Each four-day break, crafted by Cantona, includes chant workshops run by superfans, street art walks with historians and tactics briefings from leading local journalists.
The trips are created with London travel start-up DHARMA and cost around £1,075, including hotels, guides and meals.
They culminate with a Game Day experience seated in the most lively section of the stadium.
Cantona added: “The trips are for those who want to go deeper into their love of football.
“Beyond its artistic beauty, do you know the significance of the Marcus Rashford mural to the local community? This is the essence of football, whether you’re in Liverpool or Buenos Aires.”
But will we get to hear about the seagulls following the trawler, Eric?
