WHO will follow Zac Brown, who netted the match fishing scene’s £50,000 jackpot and became the third Mega ‘Match This’ Champion? It could be YOU in 2014!

Wednesday 1st January, 2014 marks the beginning of the fourth and latest chapter in the Mega ‘Match This’ story. That’s when tickets for this growing match fishing event go on sale, Angler’s Mail can confirm.

The 2014 qualifiers begin on  Saturday 5th April with qualifiers every weekend until Saturday 16th August.

Maver, match fishing tackle firm and Match This organisers, confirmed a return to Packington Somers, Cudmore Fisheries, Partridge Lakes, Barston Lakes and, of course, Maver Larford Lakes.

They revealed: ‘The 2014 campaign also see’s repeat qualifiers at 2013 sell-out venues Decoy Lakes, Peterborough and Roy Marlow’s Glebe Fishery, Leicester. Such was the demand for tickets in 2013 for both of these venues, each will now host two qualifiers next year.

‘Maver (UK) is also proud to confirm the introduction of a brand new venue for 2014 in the popular bagging mecca that is Coleman’s Cottage, Essex, meaning that the Mega ‘Match This’ qualifiers now cater for anglers from an even wider catchment area.’
