Dates for your diary

We are delighted to announce that the full schedule for our football & rugby networking events for 2022 has been confirmed. There is a good regional spread, and hopefully you can get to at least one.

The dates and venues are:

We kick off the year at The City Ground for our first ever event at the home of Nottingham Forest on 24th March. Although we haven't been to The City Ground before we have had lot of success in the Midlands with events at Molineux Stadium and Bet365 Stadium. The event will see 2 presentations take place. One will be from Future Ticketing who are a provider of digital box office, ticket sales, capacity management and access control system. The other will be from PlayFundWin who revolu­ti­onary digital raffle platform that makes fundraising simple for sports clubs, events and charities.

Next, we will return to Bramall Lane, the home of Sheffield United after hosting 2 very successful events in 2017 and 2018 at the stadium. The event will be sponsored by Mico Lighting, they provide nationwide coverage, supplying high quality lamps and luminaires. Alongside their industry leading, standard ranges we are at the forefront of lighting innovation, with a wide range of smart lighting systems and UV-C disinfection devices.

We then make a return to Etihad Stadium on 7th July where we held very successful event in 2019 with over 150 people attending including over 40 exhibitors as well as being the venue for our return last year. The event will be sponsored by FieldTurf, who have over 20,000 instal­­­la­­­tions worldwide, and has been the surface of choice for the last 20+ years, from schools & munici­­­pali­­­ties to top professional clubs, regardless of the sport.

2022 will also see the return of a popular venue with exhibitors and delegates as we go to Elland Road home of Leeds United on 8th September. Despite the fuel shortage we hosted an excellent event at the stadium last year and we expect this to be no different. This will be the second event of the year that Mico Lighting will be sponsoring. 

Finally, we go to Hampden Park, the home of Scottish football, for the 4th time in 4 event years. This event will take place on 3rd November. This event will be another chance to hear from Future Ticketing who will look into the technology of ticketing and how their system has helped transform ticketing at a number of clubs across the UK and Ireland.

Now is as good a time as any to register as an exhibitor, the cost of exhibiting for non-members is only £400+vat. There are also free delegate tickets available for clubs and companies who are wanting to see what our events are about.
