Welcome to a brand new weekly feature here on Wrestling News World I plan to make a regular piece for you all to check out. Over the past two years I've really gotten into British Wrestling, with Insane Championship Wrestling based out of Glasgow, Scotland being the main UK company I follow. I really wanted to further help highlight the achievements of the company and try to attract as many new fans to the product as possible. So I figured as I have a blog I'd make full use and take full advantage of the opportunity to put together a weekly round up of the latest news coming out of the hotbed of British Wrestling today. I'm hoping to forge a working relationship with ICW over time following this and hope you will all join me in making this a huge success.
So let's check out some of the latest news coming out of The Asylum in Glasgow.
Tickets On Sale For ICW Fear And Loathing IX
If you haven't already heard ICW announced at their recent Fear and Loathing XIII show that next years Fear and Loathing will be held at the SSE Hydro Arena, and will be held on Sunday 20th November 2016. The recent Fear and Loathing XIII show was held in front of 4,000 fans at the SECC Arena, literally almost next to the Hydro. However the plan is to sell out the Hydro which has a seated capacity of up to 12,000 people. The floor will be utilised to effect also and the company are looking to bring in their biggest crowd ever for a show.
Tickets are already selling fast, with exclusive VIP Packages already having sold out within a matter of hours. Tickets for standing and tiered seats still remain on sale ranging from £30 standing and seated to £27.50 for some side seats. These prices do not include booking fees charged by Ticketmaster.
