Matchroom Sport have announced that a further allocation of tickets will shortly be available for the fight of the century – Carl Froch vs. George Groves 2 - at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on 31 May.
The first 60,000 tickets for the rematch between the WBA and IBF World Super Middleweight champion Froch and challenger Groves sold-out within the first hour as fight fans grabbed their seats for the showdown.
Now a record 80,000 fans will cram into the national stadium to witness the grudge match between the Brit rivals, and promoter Eddie Hearn is delighted to have secured the extra capacity.
“It’s fantastic that we have managed to ensure even more fans will be in Wembley for this monumental occasion,” said Hearn. “We have worked hard with the council, Wembley and Transport for London and I am delighted that we have come to an agreement to get as many fans as possible into the stadium to create an incredible atmosphere.”
A further announcement on ticket prices and the on-sale date will be made soon. Fans can register for ticket alerts at http://www.matchroomboxing.com/froch_v_groves_2.htm
