prices cut as Sky TV returns to Highbridge's Oaktree Arena
TV will be broadcasting live coverage of a speedway fixture from
the Oaktree Arena on the outskirts of Burnham-On-Sea next Tuesday
(June 11th) and visitors will be able to experience the action
at a special low entry price.
The Somerset Rebels have cut their admission prices for the Premier
League match against the Edinburgh Monarchs, which will be televised
live by Sky Sports.
is also building in an incentive to those that attend next Tuesdays
encounter against Edinburgh for Somerset's following home match
Debbie Hancock, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We
are cutting our normal admission prices for the Sky match against
Edinburgh to £10 for both adult and concession's categories
while all under 16s will be admitted free of charge."
"We have been out in both Burnham-On-Sea and Weston-super-Mare
promoting the match, and will continue to be out and about in
the area in the days leading up to the meeting."
not only are we reducing our prices for this particular match,
on top of that everyone paying the £10 admission fee on
Tuesday will receive a voucher entitling them to £2 off
the normal admission price for our next home meeting which is
on the following Tuesday (June 18th) against Workington in the
KO Cup, though I must stress that the discount voucher is only
redeemable at that particular match and is not valid for any other
"This is the fifth successive year that Sky Sports will
have been to the Oaktree Arena to televise one of our match live
across not only the UK but throughout the speedway world, including
Australia," she added.
"In each of the previous four years the cameras have been
here we have been blessed with an excellent crowd and we would
love to maintain that tradition, and I would strongly
urge everyone to come along next Tuesday and sample the action
live for themselves, especially if theyve not been before."
guys at Sky Sports are always impressed with what they see when
they come to the region, and by having the cameras here it is
good exposure for the area as a whole, especially with the holiday
season just around the corner."
In addition to the reduced admission prices, the Rebels are holding
a fancy dress competition that is open to all children with a
prize for the best entry.
"There is no particular theme for the competition, but hopefully
we will get a good number of entries to give the judges a difficult
task in picking out a winner."
Debbie added: "Edinburgh will provide tough opposition,
what with Craig Cook, who was 4th in the recent British Championship
and ex-Rebel Claus Vissing, who will, no doubt be looking to prove
a point or two, in their septet, plus at reserve they have the
current Australian Under-21 Champion Max Fricke, so this will
be one that will be well worth coming along to watch, in addition
to which, if you record the match to watch back later, you might
get to see yourself on TV!"
