Saturday 1st September marked the conclusion of the 2018 Maver Mega ‘Match This’ event. A gruelling five month qualification campaign, starting on Sunday 1st April and finishing at The Glebe in Leicestershire on Sunday 12th 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.
The 2019 Mega Match This event brings with it some exciting new changes to the competition format that increases your chances of qualifying for a Mega Match This final! In addition to the regular twenty four (24) qualifier events taking place between 31st March – 14th August, Maver (UK) will be hosting an additional event on the day of the 2019 Mega Match This Grand Final itself.
This brand new addition to the 2019 event will be made up of twenty four (24) anglers who have recorded the largest cumulative weight from any five (5) qualifier events during the 2019 campaign. Anglers can opt to fish as many qualifier events as they like with those fortunate enough to qualify for this additional event taking place at Maver Hayfield Lakes on Saturday 31st August 2019 competing for an automatic final qualification place in the 2020 Maver Mega Match This Grand Final!
Just to clarify the new event:
- Each angler can enter as many times as he or she likes.
- If not already through to the final, their top 5 weights will be added together
- The top 24 highest weights go through to an additional event held on Match This Final day
- It is possible an angler who has only fished one eliminator can make it through to the event, but the more qualifiers fished the better your chances.
