As Leicester Tigers kicked off their European Champions Cup campaign, the club’s travel partner Thomas Cook gave one lucky family the chance to feature in a video with the players.
The experts at Thomas Cook are specialists in creating incredible holidays for groups of friends and families, and on the morning of filming, staff at their Highcross branch took a well-deserved break as Tigers stars filled their shoes (and desks) for the day!
Amanda Freeman and her son Justin, both big Tigers fans, were chosen to play the role of customers, while Luke Hamilton, Nick Malouf, George McGuigan and Chris Baumann from the Tigers squad got to grips with their new Thomas Cook roles at the Leicester Highcross store.
The video was produced to announce a new offer for Tigers fans who can get £50 off their next holiday booked in store at Thomas Cook Leicester Highcross*.
See how Amanda, Justin and the Tigers lads got on in the video below:
