Sports cameras return to Highbridge's Oaktree Arena tonight
TV will be broadcasting live coverage of a speedway fixture from
the Oaktree Arena on the outskirts of Burnham-On-Sea tonight (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.
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."
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 will
receive a voucher entitling them to £2 off the normal admission
price for our next home meeting which is next 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 meeting."
added: "This is the fifth successive year that Sky Sports
will have been to the Oaktree Arena to televise one of our matches
live across not only the UK but throughout the speedway world,
including Australia," she added.
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 and sample the action live for themselves, especially
if they've 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."
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.
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."
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!"
