Football fans drive home support for Wales thanks to travel experts

Wales’ success in the European Championships has captured both the hearts and support of the whole of the country. And in order to show their support to the stellar team, a group of Welsh football fans have decorated one of Britain’s most iconic vehicles. Complete with the roaring Welsh dragon, they took patriotism to the next level by decorating a Bentley Arnage with the country’s flag to show just how behind their team they are.

Sponsored by Leisuretime, Wales’ leading provider of UK and European coach trips, the car has been on a tour of Cardiff and the surrounding area for the past week, capturing the imagination of the population. Now, the car is set to drive down to France in order to support the team when they face rivals Northern Ireland in the last 16 on Saturday.

Ceri Johnson, Director of Leisuretime said, “We’re very proud of our national team and their achievements, so felt we needed to do something a little bit different to show our support. Decorating the car was a way to inject a bit of fun into the campaign and get people talking about Wales’ successes on the world stage.”

The whole of Wales has caught the football bug, thanks to their team’s impressive performances in the group stages. Qualifying top of their group ahead of neighbours, England, they have achieved more than many thought possible.

Ceri added, “The whole of Wales is behind the team, and we’re all extremely excited about the next stage. Seen by many as underdogs, we always knew that the team were going to do well. This idea, dreamt up by a group of loyal Welsh supporters, is an entertaining way of showing our support and raising the profile of the team, and we are honoured to have been a part of it.”

Earlier this year, Wales qualified for the Tournament, and as a consequence, reached their first major finals since 1958. This year marks their first ever European appearance, and has propelled Wales to stratospheric heights.
