Now in its third year, the Football Writers' Festival is more than football, and more than writing and reading. It helps put 'our game of opinions' into action in a fun, relaxed and stimulating environment with other people who know and love football.

The Football Writers' Festival is an initiative of Fair Play Publishing with the support of founding partner, the Johnny Warren Football Foundation.

We aim to bring together a melting pot of authors, writers, and interested voices in a Festival that encourages and inspires meaningful debate and discussion.

Take a break from your routine and come experience something totally different for a weekend in Jamberoo at the Jamberoo School of Arts as well as the Jamberoo Pub, home of the Johnny Warren Football Museum. 

The entry fee is $15 for both days to cover entry and morning and afternoon refreshments. 


This year also we also introduce the Michael Cockerill Oration to be given by Andy Harper, as well as the Portraits in Football photographic on Friday October 1. Ticket prices are an additional $35, including a complimentary drink on arrival.

Please note that the costs of add-on events such as lunch, dinner and trivia (or anything else) are met individually.
