Manchester’s brand-new multi-purpose, creative venue Love Factory has announced its debut event, presenting an experiential programme inspired by the beautiful game, combining live matches with unique exhibitions, interactive elements and exclusive hospitality options.

Love Factory’s take on the World Cup will see the action play out on a huge indoor central screen, alongside additional projectors throughout the venue for an uninterrupted view wherever seated.

Hidden away in the Green Quarter just behind Angel Meadow Park, the Fan Zone will take over the warehouse space with general seating and multiple layers of hospitality options. Alternatively, there will be dedicated Singing Terraces – a standing area as an ode to the days when the grounds rarely had seating.

Wherever guests choose to base themselves, all zones are in easy reach of a food and drink selection from leading independent traders, including Ate Days A Week who will be serving their award-winning pies, through a rotating menu with twists to suit different countries playing.

For those who would like to experience the World Cup as a group, the private hospitality suites located on the mezzanine are perfect for group hire. Kitted-out with state-of-the-art flat screens and fine-tuned sound systems – guests will feel the atmosphere direct from the grounds. Food and drink is included, delivered to the suites for complete privacy in the lap of luxury.

Love Factory will also be hosting commentators from talkSPORT, who will be broadcasting from the space, providing site-specific match coverage.

Transformed into football heaven, Love Factory aims to have unique touchpoints and exclusive items such as Copa 90 boots, classic football shirts worn by the world’s most legendary squads, archive images, rare posters and more.

Interactive Experience & Exhibition

Classic Football Shirts will be showcasing a curated collection of World Cup jerseys. The exhibition will look at past iconic World Cup moments and wins – portraying the culture of football through the lens of sportswear.

The collection will see match-worn England shirts including 1990 Home, 1998 Home and many more that represent historical moments within the game.

Kids can also join in the fun with limited coaching sessions from Football Kings outside the ticketed match days. Further details will be released soon. 

Furthermore, Love Factory will kick off with Five A Side Pitch campaign on Thursday 17th November for an influencer tournament with a mixture of Manchester teams including Stretford Paddock, Habitat, EATMCR, Love Factory, Classic Football Shirts, Football Kings, and Miss Kick.

Tickets for the World Cup at Love Factory are £5 for Standing, £7 for Seating, £10 per person for Hospitality Seating.

Private Suites are also available at £75 per person which include a private space with champagne on arrival, complimentary food and drinks, state-of-the-art flatscreen TVs, sound systems, and access to private bars. For further enquiry, please email
