We've got a huge fanbase, we're the fastest growing sport in the world and it's our job to make sure we bring everything together and that we bring a fantastic experience to our fans, and to new fans.
"Our commitment to the European market is huge. We're a team of people who are dedicated to putting on fantastic events. We've got people here who wake up every single morning thinking of nothing else but how they're going to grow the business right across that landscape." Read the full interview on Mirror.co.uk
