ROH August 13th Broxbourne event SOLD OUT
The closing leg of the Ring of Honor UK tour in Broxbourne Civic Hall has now officially sold out. The venue, which holds just under 600 fans, had already required the inclusion of additional seating for the highly anticipated event. Yet even this was not enough to house the number of fans who wanted to attend this event. The news was received by head of European Marketing and Promotion Alex Shane
this past week. Shane, who has run events with the FWA at the venue since 2001 said “I have never seen a wrestling event sell out at Broxbourne a good two months before the date itself has even taken place. The support UK fans have shown for Ring of Honor in the UK has been something that myself and the rest of the company have been completely overwhelmed by. We were all fairly certain of a Broxbourne sell out on the day but none of us could have predicted it so soon.” His sentiments were also shared by venue manager Tony Driver. Driver added “We are all amazed that an event with not a single bit of local promotion has drawn such a response. The venue allocation of tickets had almost completely gone in the first 2 days and not even the addition of extra seating has helped us keep up with demand”. He continued “We are still taking calls for tickets now and for the first time I can recall we are telling fans, sorry but we are completely sold out!”ROH owner Cary Silkin told us yesterday “Ring of Honor would like to thank our UK fans for making this possible and promise that you that we will do everything we can to reward the support you have shown us on this tour. We would also like to apologise to any fans who could not get tickets in time but would like to remind you that you still have the chance to see ROH live on the opening night of the tour in Liverpool. We are all extremely pumped up for this weekend”There are still seats left for the opening night on Saturday August 12th at the Liverpool Olympia but fans are urged to purchase their tickets now to avoid disappointment as only limited numbers remain.
