British Wrestling are delighted to announce a new wrestling event to our schedule, Home Nations Showdown.
This event will pit senior wrestlers from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland against each other in a team competition. It will take place on June 24th at The Academy in Manchester.
There will also be another event paired up with this competition which we are very excited to announce in the next couple of days.
Competition Manager, Kieran Malone had this to say.
“ I’m very excited to trial this concept of competition. I feel it’s very important we try different things with our events.
Not only does it give our home nation wrestlers something to train for and more competition experience. It also allows teams to build squad ethos and identity in between Commonwealth Games years for the home nation teams.
The aim is that in the future this is a showcase event for wrestling that we stream online, host in different venues such as theatres and even start to include star matches from former wrestlers or from people outwith the sport to bring more eyes on wrestling.”
