UTRECHT, The Netherlands, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- FIFA Women's World Cup, Germany, 26th June - 17th May
This summer, football enthusiasts on their way to the Women's World Cup in Germany can enjoy the flexibility that InterRail has to offer. Rail travel remains one of the most convenient, affordable and sustainable ways to see Europe. Travellers can save money and are free to take in the spectacular sights, sounds, and tastes of Europe at their own pace.
Commencing on the 26th June, the FIFA Women's World Cup is recognised as the most important international competition in women's football. Germany stands ready to host this important event and Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) will effortlessly rise to the logistical challenge by transporting thousands of supporters to football stadiums across the entire nation with their impressive railway network of 47,200 km.
Deutsche Bahn, one of the Eurail Group's shareholders and the events official mobility sponsor is offering free local transport to FIFA ticket holders on the days when matches are played. For those wishing to combine a football match with a European rail adventure, travelling with the InterRail Global Pass could be the ideal solution for long distance journeys within Germany and beyond.
Rail passes continue to offer excellent value for money and more than 243.500 Europeans took to the rails with the InterRail Pass during 2010. Last year, the InterRail One Country Passes for Italy, Germany, France and Spain were extremely popular, however, the Global Pass represented 67% of InterRail travellers. The Eurail Group predicts that local events in these markets will stimulate more people to discover the freedom of InterRail this summer.
"In Europe, many of the countries are so closely connected that InterRail Passes make rail travel relatively seamless, especially for those wishing to combine a football match with a rail adventure". From the broad range of InterRail One Country Passes to the InterRail Global Pass valid in 30 countries, there's a pass to compliment every European itinerary," says marketing director Ana Dias e Seixas of the Eurail Group.
