About The Event

As you know, we postponed the Football Writers' Festival (set for 30-31 May 2020) on 17 March due to coronavirus; and we re-scheduled to end September in June. However, due to developments in Melbourne, and travel restrictions affecting people from and to Victoria and NSW, we re-scheduled one more time for this year to 21-22 November

Please note that there will be a strict limit on numbers in line with the NSW Government's requirements on indoor gatherings. As of July 1, that is to allow 4 square metres per person until further notice.

The Festival will be nothing but football, writing and ideas. We hope that you will join us for an exchange of ideas, great debate and lots of laughs with a load of other 'football tragics' - including the FFA CEO, James Johnson. 

Entry fee: $15 for both days. Due to coronavirus restrictions, no single day tickets are available at this time. 

Costs for lunch on both days are paid directly by individual attendees. The same applies for dinner on Saturday evening, but we do have a $30 pasta and salad option which must be purchased separately, and can be pre-purchased via our website.
