FISHOMANIA 2024 – TICKET INFO & QUALIFIERS REVEALED
Matchroom Multi Sport and the Angling Trust can reveal that the hottest tickets in British match fishing will go on sale Friday February 2 as FishOMania launches for 2024.
And today we can also unveil the locations of the 20 qualifiers – win one of them and you’ll be starring in front of the Sky TV cameras in the final.
This season’s qualifiers will be staged at locations which include the most popular venues from last year, along with one new water – Marston Fields – and two returning favourites from FishO’s illustrious history, the superb Hallcroft Fishery and Gold Valley Lakes.
The grand final will once again be hosted at the amazing Westwood Lakes, in Lincolnshire – this year on Saturday July 27, 2024.
The 2024 final will also see a familiar face back on the bank as organisers Matchroom Multi Sport extend an invite to reigning champion Matty Dawes who’ll be returning to defend his title following his big win in the rain in July 2023.
He’ll be joined by the winner of the 2024 Angling Trust Women’s National – due to take place on July 6 – and the angler with the highest weight from the Cadet, Junior & Youth National Championships which will be fished on June 29 and 30. Two international anglers will also qualify for the final.
Once again, this year will see tickets sold in two stages to allow anglers the best chance to grab a slice of the action in the big-money event where there’ll be a whopping £50,000 for grabs to the winner, £10,000 to the runner up, and section prizes too.
IMPORTANT TICKET INFORMATION
Following the high demand for tickets crashing our web host’s servers in recent years, a new, streamlined purchasing system will be in place for 2024 which will look different to previous seasons.
The new system will require all potential ticket buyers to have their Angling Trust membership in place by midnight on Wednesday January 31 at the latest or they will be unable to buy a ticket in this first round.
