The NWCFL is delighted to once again be partnering with Groundhop UK to bring fans the opportunity to attend seven matches over the course of one weekend. This year, that means fans can spend the weekend of the 4th to the 6th March visiting seven different grounds and taking in some really key fixtures in the battle for promotion and to avoid relegation. 

Of course, its possible to get in your motor and follow the games around, we have found a large number of people do this each time we schedule a hop, however our friends at Groundhop UK are operating a tour of all of the grounds, accomodation and guaranteed match entry with a programme.  All of the available information on how to register, including for the full weekend package of accomodation, travel, match tickets and programmes, can be found here.
