Tickets Out for First Nitro World Games in Australia

A major sports event that’s usually held in the U.S. is coming to Australia for the first time. Nitro World Games, an Elite action BMX, skate and scooter competition, will be staged at the Suncorp Stadium in Milton.

Ticket sales for this event, with more than 60 competitors around the world, will go up on Sunday, 7 Feb 2021 via the official site. The exclusive two-day passes will be released until 11 Feb 2021. 

Spectators can expect exciting matches and exhibitions from world-class athletes in Freestyle Motocross, BMX, Skateboarding and Scooter.

“Nitro World Games at Suncorp Stadium is predicted to deliver more that $20 million to Queensland’s tourism economy, attracting up to 76,000 visitor nights,” Tourism and Sports Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said. “That’s a spectacular and welcome boost for accommodation and transport providers, cafes, restaurants and local tourism businesses.”

The State Government said that this is a major coup for Australia’s sporting capital, validating the effective COVID-19 measures adopted in Queensland.

“Nitro world Games is a destination event that will bring visitors to South East Queensland and support local jobs for Queensland’s economic recovery,” Mr Hinchcliffe added.

“The hard work of Queenslanders on COVID-19 means we’re able to enjoy safe, elite action events like the World Nitro Games. “

Andy Edwards, the President of Asia Pacific for Thrill One Sports & Entertainment, said that it feels good to have this anticipation for the first-ever Nitro World Games outside of its usual venue, the United States, following the games’ cancellation in 2020.

Mr Edwards said that they’ve been receiving an unprecedented pre-sale ticket demand in the last week. 

“[It] just makes the prospect of staging this unique event in front of a packed Suncorp Stadium of screaming fans all the more exciting.”

The games will run from 23 to 24 Oct 2021.
