FIRST ROUND OF FIX AUTO UK SPONSORED ARENACROSS TOUR BREAKS BOX OFFICE RECORDS
The first two rounds of the Fix Auto UK sponsored Arenacross Tour proved to be a box-office sell out at The SSE Arena in Belfast last weekend with capacity crowds filling the arena on both nights.
More than 11,000 fans witnessed world class motocross racing from the field of international riders as well as freestyle motocross using the Fix Auto UK branded FMX ramp.
Arenacross now heads back to the UK mainland for the third and fourth rounds of the Tour at Resorts World Arena, formerly the Genting Arena, in Birmingham on February 1st and 2nd. This will be followed up by a visit to the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield on February 15th and 16th.
Fix Auto UK’s Ian Pugh said: “Seeing our branding take centre stage at this amazing event in front of sell-out audiences was another proud achievement in the constant evolution of Fix Auto UK. The riders were incredible and the audiences were buzzing. I am sure those who head to the Birmingham and Sheffield rounds will also be thoroughly entertained by this impressive event.”
Matt Bates, Arena Sports Live CEO and promoter of The Arenacross Tour, said: “We’ve been staging World Class Motocross events in Belfast since 2001 and it’s great to see an arena full of Arenacross fans 18 years on. It’s good to have such an engaged audience not only for the Tour but for our sponsors. We are all looking forward to the next rounds in Birmingham and Sheffield.”
