2023 Football Writers' Festival - International line-up

2023 Football Writers' Festival - International line-up

Have you seen the international speaker line-up for the 2023 Football Writers' Festival

In a word, it's stellar!

Even those who squat on social media taking side swipes at anything positive in football could find nothing negative to say. (Must have been a sad day for them).

From Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Germany, Denmark, Nigeria, Argentina, USA and Canada, we will not see another international line-up like it, so if you've been thinking 'I must get along to a Football Writers' Festival one day' this is the year to do it. 

Just days before kick-off of the opening match between Australia and Ireland, three days of football, writing and ideas for readers, writers, thinkers and dreamers. 

There are five themes for the festival: 

  • Hear Us Roar!
  • First Nations Football curated by Emeritus Professor John Maynard
  • That's a Fact
  • Big Ideas
  • Football Stories
There are also two terrific, add-on social occasions.
  • The first, a Happy Hour and Hypothetical at the Wharf 2 Theatre, with the Hypothetical hosted by Nick Harris.
  • The second, a Dumpling, Taco and Trivia night at Pier One Harbourside, with the Trivia hosted by Murray Shaw. 
Early Bird ticket packages are now available until 17th March. Take a look at them here, and make sure you get in early!

Have you got a spring in your step for the new year?

We love books!
