Mega Match This bags national media sponsor

The UK’s richest angling event Mega Match This run by Maver UK has secured The Daily Mirror as its official national media sponsor, taking this competition and angling in general to a new media awareness level.

Eugene Duffy, Managing Editor of Mirror Group Newspapers commented: "The Daily Mirror is delighted to become the official national media sponsor for Mega Match This. We know many of our readers are keen anglers and believe this competition will give the sport the profile it has sometimes lacked in the past.

"Angling has more people regularly taking part than any sport in the UK but this hasn't always been reflected in the media. The Daily Mirror will be an enthusiastic supporter of the competition and looks forward to a long association with Mega Match This which we believe will quickly establish itself as the leading match fishing competition in the country.”

Phil Briscoe, Managing Director, Maver UK added: “I’m absolutely delighted that The Daily Mirror has come on board in support of the competition and of angling in general.  Regular updates on the competition in the Daily Mirror will raise the profile of angling to a much more national level which makes this a very exciting time for everyone involved.”
