Football Manager WorldNet & BigTamVets 2019 – Entry Still Open!

RETURNING to Nottingham in July this year, we are delighted to be returning to the University of Nottingham’s Riverside Sports Complex on the weekend of the 5th – 7th July 2019, with our flagship tournaments WorldNet and BigTamVets which are once again proudly sponsored by Football Manager.

For the third year in a row we are delighted to be back in Nottingham and thank the University team at University of Nottingham for their ongoing support.

Last year we had a great time in Nottingham and kudos to our winners in Rotherham United in the Main Competition, Barnsley in the Plate Competition and Doncaster Rovers winning the BigTamVets for the first time, we look forward to seeing our three winners in July with all three having re-entered for 2019.

This year we will welcome team’s from across the UK and beyond. From the North of Scotland, to the South Coast and from overseas, including our friends from RC Lens and Arsenal Nigeria.
