Vanarama is delighted to announce that it is the new title sponsor for Fish'O'Mania, in association with Matchroom Sport, one of the world's leading producers of televised sport, and the owner, manager and promoter of many world-class sporting events. Vanarama Content Editor Tom Roberts reports.

Steve Mark, Brand Director at Vanarama, said: "Vanarama are delighted to extend our sports sponsorship portfolio to fishing by sponsoring Fish'O'Mania 2017. We're committed to bringing the same energy, engagement and enthusiasm to fishing as we do to our other partnerships in football and basketball."
Based in the UK and founded in 1982, Fish'O'Mania owner and organiser Matchroom Sport (www.matchroomsport.com) is one of the world's leading producers of televised sport and is responsible for over 1,000 hours of original programming across a range of sports. Chairman Barry Hearn commented: "We are delighted to be working with such a dynamic company as Vanarama at fishing's biggest event. Fish'O'Mania has stood the test of time and is now one of those great British summer sporting occasions, and a wonderful day out at an outstanding location. I believe that there is a lot of natural synergy between Vanarama and the UK's anglers, and we're all looking forward to July 8th."
Fish'O'Mania in focus
The entire event – nearly 5.5 hours – will also be covered by the Sky Sports cameras and non-stop live coverage throughout. Fish'O'Mania also includes the Vanarama Fish'O'Mania Ladies championship, alongside the Vanarama Fish'O'Mania Juniors.
With qualification running from March to June, there have been 24 separate heats across England, plus one in Germany. Three previous champions have won through – Steve Cooke, Steve Jackson and Jamie Hughes – but all eyes will be on Will Raison, the Team England superstar who triumphed in the penultimate qualifying match. We can't wait!
