prices specially cut for Sky TV's speedway fixture in Highbridge
The Somerset Rebels have announced that admission prices for
their Sky TV encounter against Edinburgh on Tuesday 11th August
will be specially slashed.
Tickets will be £10 for adult and concession categories,
while those aged 18 and under will be admitted free of charge.
"First and foremost, we are delighted that the Sky cameras
will be back at the Oaktree Arena this year, making it the 7th
year in a row that we have had the pleasure of Sky Sports here
at Somerset," Somerset Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock told
"Each year we have been blessed with an excellent turn-out
crowd-wise and we would love to pack out the place again for this
years visit by the Sky team for our meeting against Edinburgh,
the current league table-toppers, and so we are delighted to announce
that we will be reducing our admission prices that night to £10
for our adult and concessionary categories, while those aged 18
and under will be admitted free, though proof of age must be provided
if requested upon entry otherwise the full admission price of
£10 will be applied."
"Our raising during last season of the young adult category
from an upper age limit from 16 to 18 has proved to be a great
success, especially for those who are still at college or 6th
form, plus for those who may have just left school and started
in employment, it does mean that the cost of attending speedway
does not become an drain on their limited resources
of their parents!"
"The previous meetings broadcast live by the Sky cameras
have all been real humdingers, going right back to the first televised
meeting here against Kings Lynn, who will ever forget that
heat 15 last heat decider, right up until last years Premier
League Pairs, albeit the Final proved to be somewhat of an anti-climax."
"Obviously with the cameras in town that evening, fans need
to be aware that we will be starting proceedings promptly at 7.30pm,
so my message to everyone is to get to the Oaktree Arena early
that night, especially as we will hopefully have an even bigger
than usual crowd due to our price reductions."
