Gold Coast SUNS China Travel Package

Travel with your Team and Virgin Australia to Shanghai for the Fly with the SUNS travel package

In 2018, the Gold Coast SUNS will again take on Port Adelaide in Shanghai. To ensure that our fans travel in style, we have worked with our valued airline partner, Virgin Australia, to pull together the Ultimate Gold Coast SUNS Fan package. This package will not only see you ‘Fly with the SUNS’ from the Gold Coast to Shanghai but also attend all official Club functions, allowing you to mix with players, coaches, board members and other members and supporters.  Most importantly you’ll be able to cheer on the GC SUNS as they take to the field at Jiangwan Stadium in the heart of Shanghai.  This package will also give you ample time to explore the city of Shanghai.

With the time and date of the match now finalised, Virgin Australia are working through the necessary government regulations and approvals to confirm this flight departing and arriving at Gold Coast Airport.  We anticipate that this will be confirmed in the next 2 weeks and AFL Travel will contact those wishing to book directly.
