The FishO Grand Final will be held at Hayfield Lakes, Doncaster on Saturday, July 11. There will be 18 UK qualifying matches, with defending champion Andy Bennett and Ladies National Champion Abbi Kendall already qualified. There will be four international qualifying matches, details of which will be announced shortly.
Tickets for all 18 qualifiers will be available from 10am on Tuesday, 5th November at www.anglingtrust.net. The winners of all 18 UK qualifiers will receive £250 and a place in the 2020 Fish‘O’Mania Grand Final.
Matchroom Multi Sport and the Angling Trust are committed to making Fish‘O’Mania as accessible as possible. This year 11 qualifying matches will be wheelchair accessible, up from six in 2019.
