FWF 2019: The Blizzard, Live! Calendar

5 September 2019 - 5 September 2019
6:30pm - 9pm



The Blizzard, Live! makes another triumphant return to Manchester as part of the Football Writing Festival.

The Blizzard is the quarterly football publication featuring top class authors and journalists from around the world, covering a terrifyingly vast range of subjects, from Tasmania Berlin, Denis Law's time in Torino and politics in Asian football, through to back-up goalkeepers and the impact of the Neville brothers. Often diverse, always riveting.

Join Blizzard editor and Inverting the Pyramid author Jonathan Wilson, The Independent's chief football writer Miguel Delaney, New York Times' chief soccer (football) correspondent Rory Smith and The Athletic's new signing Jack Pitt-Brooke for an evening of in-depth discussion, lively debate and African Cup of Nations anecdotes.

The event is frequently one of the most popular in the programme, so book your seat early to avoid disappointment.

All FWF ticket holders will also receive free admission to the National Football Museum on Thursday 5 September.

Please note that ticket prices do not include Eventbrite booking fees.
