The Arenacross World Tour is postponing its event planned to take place at the huge ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, in March and will instead run at the smaller ISS Dome, also in Dusseldorf, later this year in November.
The ISS Dome is more compact and better suits the arena bowl style of the Arenacross Tour, however, the venue wasn’t originally available at the planning point of the AX World Tour.
“The rapidly-increasing popularity of Arenacross is proof that its current set-up is the way forward,” said Arenacross Tour owner Matt Bates. “At this stage we feel it’s geared more towards an arena, rather than stadium venue and we want to consolidate and grow a format that we know works, rather than trying to run before we can walk. A substantial number of tickets have already been sold for the event and all purchasers will be contacted by the booking agent Eventim Sports and offered a full refund, an exchange to the event in Belgium on 3rd March or to keep their tickets for the ISS Dome event November”.
“We are definitely committed to expanding the Tour and taking it into Europe but, the time and place has to be a hundred per cent right, especially with such an important market as Germany” concluded Bates.
“We are happy to offer the venue that suits the AX best. Our advantage is to have different venues out of one hand”, said Martin Ammermann, Executive Director Sports of Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event.
The AX International Tour will still take place as a two-leg series starting, as already planned, at the Wembley Arena, London on the 17th of February and then over to the Ethias Arena in Belgium on March 3rd.
