Saturday 3rd September marked the conclusion of the 2016 Maver Mega ‘Match This’ event. A gruelling five month qualification campaign, starting on Saturday 2nd April and finishing at The Glebe / Mallory Park in Leicestershire on Wednesday 17th August, produced what many have since hailed as the best big money final ever with twenty four of the UK’s finest match anglers going head-to-head for angling’s richest prize.
Tickets for the 2017 Mega Match This event went on sale New Year’s Eve with large numbers of anglers securing their tickets in the hope of qualifying for angling’s richest final just minutes after general release. In fact, since tickets were launched, three qualifier events have very nearly sold out ahead of the 2017 qualifier campaign beginning in April.
The 2017 Mega Match This event welcomes a brand new venue in Solhampton Fishery, Worcestershire as well as a second qualifier at Grand Final host venue, Maver Hayfield Lakes. The ever-popular Midlands bagging mecca that is Mallory Park will host a total of four qualifier events for 2017 with historically popular venues including Partridge Lakes, Decoy Lakes and, for the first time ever, Lindholme Lakes, hosting repeat qualifiers.
