UFC 127 Sells Out in 30 Minutes

UFC 127: PENN v FITCH IS FASTEST SELL-OUT IN UFC HISTORY. STACKED CARD IN SYDNEY SELLS OUT IN 30MINS
Sydney, Australia – The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization return to Australia has resulted in the fastest sell-out in company history.

UFC 127: PENN v FITCH, which will emanate from Sydney’s Acer Arena on February 27, sold-out in half an hour when tickets went on sale last week, equaling the company record set earlier this year by UFC 115 in Vancouver, Canada.

The UFC’s previous incursion into Sydney - February 2010’s UFC 110 - set box office records at Acer, and sold out within two hours. UFC 110 remains the fourth fastest UFC sellout ever, meaning two of the top five best selling UFC events have been hosted by the Harbour City.

UFC MD of International Development Marshall Zelaznik said: “We’re ecstatic. Tickets sold out literally as quickly as the Ticketek phone lines and website would allow, and that’s despite us working with our partners at Acer to add an extra 600 seats to the in-arena configuration we had at UFC 110. We will have just over 18,000 fans in attendance at UFC 127 in nine weeks’ time and expect to blow the roof off.”

Zelaznik said the rapid-fire sell out is indicative of the stunning growth of the sport Down Under.  

He said: “The UFC’s popularity is exploding in Australia, even faster than we could have expected. Over the last 18months, Australia has become one of the top three or four markets in the world for us. When you consider UFC programming is enjoyed by tens of millions of fans across 150 countries, that’s a big statement about the passion Australian sports fans have for the UFC.

“Thank you Australia for being so awesome; we can’t wait for February and are bringing a stacked card which is certainly a front-runner for one of the most exciting of the New Year.”

UFC 127 will be screened LIVE around the world in the usual timeslot for UFC events, meaning the event takes place on 26th February in North America and can be viewed live in exactly the same time slot as any other UFC PPV.

Information on how fans in Australia can watch UFC 127 will be released shortly.
