Topps kicks off free footie collectors’ festival

Published on: 16th October 2018

The company’s series of October free festivals started at the weekend, bringing games and challenges to collectors of all ages.

Opening at Milton Keynes’ The Centre MK, The Topps October Festival welcomed huge numbers to this year’s premier event. Guests were welcomed by Paz and Ketch from Match of The Day Magazine and got to participate in a host of activities centered around fan favourites including Premier League Match Attax, Champions League Stickers, WWE and the brand new I Believe In range.

Inviting fans to swap their cards with other collectors, the festival is a seven-date tour visiting five shopping centre locations and the Football Museum throughout October weekends and school half-term.

Marking the launch of the brand-new Mattch Attax Premier League 18/19 season collection, football enthusiasts and fans of Match Attax, the official Premier League Trading Card Game, can get to try their luck in a head-to-head challenge of stats, tactic and skill to win special Match Attax master cards, and enter further exclusive football giveaways.

Topps has also partnered with record-breaking superstar Dan Magness, who is appearing throughout the festival to offer football freestyle tips and perform his freestyle routine.

The festival, which is free to enter and open to all, welcomed over 25,000 visitors during its 2017 run and is aiming to attract even more collectors for 2018. Along with the shopping centre tour, Topps will be further supporting the new Match Attax collection by running in-store activites and events throughout half term within selected Entertainer and Smyths stores.
