Looking for hosts

There is still a number of opportunities for brigades and Provincials to host events. Hosting a UFBA event is a great opportunity to strengthen the camaraderie of your brigade.

There are also some opportunities to fundraise for your brigade or Association. And bringing an event to your community has some economic benefits for your township.

Showcase your brigade

Hosting an event for the UFBA doesn’t have to be hard work, and you don’t have to have done one before OR have a competing team in the event.

The UFBA Events team will help you every step of the way. The UFBA look after all the big stuff, make all the bookings and secure all the resources. Catering, venue and resource sourcing and willing helpers is all it takes to be a great host.

Hosting an event is a great opportunity to showcase your district and brigade and make new friends. If you would like to consider being a host for one of our events next year, contact Ceara in the UFBA office on 027 201 2212 or ceara to get more information.
