Future West Promotions have moved the final round of the ACU British Supercross Championship to the brand new state of the art O2 Arena nestled inside the huge Millennium Dome in London. Originally planned for Wembley Arena on March 1st the event now moves to the O2 Arena on February 23, 2008. The move from the scheduled Wembley Arena comes after a clash with the annual Hawkstone International event after the organisers of the International were forced to change their date.
"It has been a lot of work to move the date and venue but the O2 facility is second to none. I was amazed when I visited the O2 for the first time. The arena is first class with features we have never seen in an arena. The O2 Arena has more seats which is a good thing as the last event we held in London back in '99 at Earls Court was packed to the rafters with 10,000 plus spectators." says Future West's John Hellam.
The O2 will have approximately the same amount of seats as Earls Court. Outside the arena you will still be under the huge dome which has been transformed into an entertainment area. Entertainment Avenue, inside the dome features numerous restaurants and bars plus a multi-plex cinema with 11 screens as well as an exhibition hall which is hosting the Tutankhamun Pharoah exhibition. Everything is inside out of the weather under the huge dome. The O2 has its own subway and bus station plus access to central London by boat with acres of parking and easily accessible from the M25. If that is not enough the whole complex sits right next door to the David Beckham Football Academy.
