  • Description

    LONDON HAS TWO BRIGHT NEW INFORMATION CENTRES... ESPECIALLY FOR VISITORS COMING TO THE BRITISH CAPITAL WHILE THE WORLD CUP SOCCER BATTLE IS BEING FOUGHT OUT.

    SOCCER ENTHUSIASTS ARRIVING IN THE COUNTRY BY AIR WILL FIND A SPECIAL DESK AT LONDON AIRPORT, CLEARLY LABELLED "WORLD CUP INFORMATION". HERE THEY'LL BE ABLE TO GET LEAFLETS ON THE WORLD CUP, AND HELP ON TRAVEL AND TOURIST PROBLEMS.

    IN PICCADILLY, IN THE HEART OF LONDON'S WEST END, THE WORLD CUP INFORMATION AND TRAVEL CENTRE OPENED FOR BUSINESS TODAY (TUESDAY). THE CENTRE, WHICH WAS OPENED BY THE BRITISH MINISTER FOR SPORT MR DENIS HOWELL, WILL KEEP ITS DOORS OPEN TO VISITORS SEVEN DAYS A WEEK UNTIL THE END OF THE GREAT SOCCER BONANZA.

    STAFF FROM THE WORLD CUP ORGANISATION MAN DESKS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON TEAMS, FIXTURES AND LATEST SCORES. INFORMATION ON TRAVEL, ACCOMMODATION AND TOURISM COMES FROM THE LONDON TOURIST BOARD AND BRITISH TRAVEL ASSOCIATION...

    STAFF AT THE INFORMATION CENTRE HAVE HAD SPECIAL UNIFORMS DESIGNED FOR THEM, AND PRETTY GIRLS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT THE LANGUAGES OF ALL COUNTRIES TAKING PART IN THE TOURNAMENT WILL BE SPOKEN.

    BUT THERE'S ONE THING THE CENTRE WON'T BE ABLE TO DO... IT CAN'T FIND TICKETS FOR ANY DISAPPOINTED FANS.
