Rapid sell out expected for UFC FIGHT NIGHT GLASGOW
UFC® today confirmed tickets to the highly anticipated UFC® FIGHT NIGHT GLASGOW will go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 29.
UFC FIGHT NIGHT GLASGOW, which will take place on Saturday, July 18 at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, will be the first UFC event ever to take place in Scotland.
Following widespread demand from mixed martial arts fans for an event in Scotland, together with the overwhelming success of recent UFC events in nearby European regions including London and Dublin, the decision was made that a live event would this year be hosted in Scotland.
Subsequent to the announcement of the event, which was made back in January by UFC, thousands of fans registered their interest online. As a result, tickets for the event are expected to sell out incredibly quickly.
There are currently three Scottish fighters signed to UFC: fan-favourite and No.8 ranked women’s strawweight Joanne “Jojo” Calderwood (9-1-0, fighting out of Glasgow, Scotland), lightweight Stevie “Braveheart” Ray (17-5-0, fighting out of Fife, Scotland) - who just weeks ago secured a KO win in his debut UFC fight in Poland - and exciting featherweight Robert “The Hammer” Whiteford (11-2-0, fighting out of Glasgow, Scotland). All three fighters have made no secret of their desire to step inside the Octagon at the UFC’s debut event in their home country.
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, May 29 and 10:00 BST. UFC Fight Club® members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets ahead of the crowd on Wednesday, May 27 at 10.00 BST via www.ufcfightclub.com, while Sun+ members will also have an early opportunity to secure tickets on Wednesday, May 27 from 12:00 BST.
