We are delighted to announce that the full schedule for our football and rugby networking events for 2020 has been confirmed. We are also delighted that Landways, Future Ticketing and FieldTurf have agreed to be sponsors. There is a good regional spread, and hopefully you can get to at least one.

The dates and venues are:

  • 19th March at Elland Road Stadium, Leeds
  • 30th April at Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester
  • 2nd July at Etihad Stadium, Manchester
  • 17th September at Bet365 Stadium, Stoke
  • 12th November at Hampden Park, Glasgow

We kick off the year at Elland Road for our first ever event at the home of Leeds United on 19th March. Although we haven't been to Elland Road before we have had lot of success in Yorkshire with events at Bramall Lane, John Smiths Stadium and New York Stadium. The event will be sponsored by Future Ticketing who are a provider of digital box office, ticket sales, capacity management and access control system.

Next we have our annual rugby business networking event, following 3 successful events at rugby league stadium we will make our way south to the home of Gloucester Rugby Union Club on 30th April. This event will be sponsored by Landways who are pioneers in enabling incredible fan experiences by providing innovative world-class digital infra­­­struc­­­ture. 

We then make a return to Etihad Stadium on 2nd July where we held a very successful event in 2019 with over 150 people attending  including over 40 exhibitors. 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.

2020 will also see the return of a popular venue with exhibitors and delegates as we go to the Bet365 Stadium, home of Stoke City on 17th September. We have hosted a number of successful events at the stadium in recent years and we expect this to be no different.

Finally we go to Hampden Park, the home of Scottish football, for the 3rd year in a row. This event will take place on 12th November. This will be the second event of the year that Future Ticketing will be sponsoring.
