Football Writing Festival 2018

All good things come in fives. Brazil’s World Cup wins. Liverpool’s Champions League triumphs. Manchester’s Football Writing Festivals?


After four glorious years of discussion, the fifth edition of the Football Writing Festival is shaping up to be another winner. Join a star-studded team of journalists and pundits for a week of free-flowing football chat as we pore over the World Cup, European football and the most pertinent topics around the beautiful game.


The likes of Jonathan Wilson, Michael Calvin, Philippe Auclair, Suzy Wrack, Barry Glendenning and Max Rushden are just some of the literary Galacticos in the line-up, with more big-name signings imminent in the coming weeks. Keep track of the latest moves and developments on Twitter via @mcrfwf.


The festival kicks off on Thursday 30 August, drawing to a close the following Thursday 6 September.
