Manchester Sports & Music Festival – play all day, party all night, camp all weekend !

AFL Europe is happy to introduce you to a new Event organized by Bthere Events in partnership with Manchester Mosquitoes ARFC. The launch of the Aussie Rules tournament at the Manchester Sports & Music Festival during this new and exciting festival will take place on the 16-18 May 2014.

Festival organisers are looking forward to hosting one of the most exciting Australian Football tournaments in the UK. Teams are expected to enter from around the UK and Europe.

The event will include male and female competitions as well as AFL 9’s (touch), over the two days. The games will be played 9-a-side (with 6 substitutes). There are no regulations regarding the number of Australian players per team.

Other sports will be played as well during the event. Team entry is now open and starts at £15 per player for the whole weekend (£225 per team).

Have your flip-flops and bikinis at the ready, as the festival fancy dress theme is Beach Party! Cocktails, champagne, food from all around the world and DJs music will be the key words of this entertaining, relaxing and chilled-out atmosphere.

Live sports will be shown over the weekend on a Big Screen, including the FA Cup final and the two Aviva Premiership rugby semi-finals.

Once the trophies have been handed out and the fancy dress outfits are on head to the Festival Marquee, the atmosphere will be electric and it is the perfect place to party hard after playing hard. Expect headline DJs spinning tunes until the late hours, ensuring the party never stops.

Fitting it all in could be a challenge, so the best way to experience all aspects of the festival will be to camp. The Festival Campsite is ideally located in the heart of the arena and Family & Female Only campsites will also be available for those looking for a quieter environment. Camping is priced from just £20 per person and it is advised that you book early to secure your place.

Be prepared to play hard and party hard at the Manchester Sports & Music Festival!

Women willing to play, please get in touch with your country coordinator so we can best organize the teams.

If you would like to umpire at the festival you can register online.
