CWFC set for Newcastle
CAGE WARRIORS Fighting Championship will hit Newcastle, England, in December for the promotion’s penultimate event of the year.
Officials can today confirm that Saturday, December 7, will see the city’s Metro Radio Arena will play host to CWFC’s eighth UK show of 2013, which is currently scheduled as Cage Warriors 62.
The venue, which can cater for up to 11,000 fans, will open ticket sales shortly for an event that’s set to attract huge attention in the north-east of England.
Cage Warriors 62 will be the first CWFC event to be held in the region since November 2003, when Cage Warriors 5 took place in nearby South Shields.
“The Cage Warriors fans in the north-east have been begging me to bring the show up there for a long time so we’re delighted to be doing that on December 7,” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan.
“Based on the number of requests I’ve had, we’ve obviously got a huge following in Newcastle and the surrounding area, so I think this has the potential to be our biggest event of the year.
“We’ve got some excellent local talent on our roster, such as Alex Enlund, Liam James, Shaj Haque and Chris Scott, and I’m sure they - along with the big national and international names we’ll bring in - will be keen to put on a show.
“We’ve had successful arena shows in Cardiff and Liverpool already this year, but I’m really looking forward to this one. I think Cage Warriors in Newcastle will be something special.”
Cage Warriors 62 will be the first of two CWFC events in the month of December, with another visit to The Helix in Dublin, Ireland, booked for New Year’s Eve.
