Matchroom Boxing Fight Pass Launches In August
July 9 2014
Streamed shows begin on September 12 – members get priority ticket booking period
Eddie Hearn is proud to announce the launch of the Matchroom Boxing Fight Pass – a new membership service that gives fight fans more live boxing, as Matchroom Boxing teams up with other UK promoters to develop younger fighters, and gives members priority ticket booking to Matchroom Boxing shows and regular exclusive content from the Matchroom Boxing archive.
The Fight Pass will give members full access to up to 10 additional fight nights per year which will be streamed live in full HD at MatchroomBoxing.com. Matchroom will be working with fellow UK promoters Dave Coldwell, Steve Wood and Steve Goodwin on the shows, with the first event on September 12 as Coldwell Boxing presents ‘In The Line of Fire’ at Ice Sheffield, topped by the English Welterweight title clash between the exciting Chad Gaynor against the unbeaten Ahmet Patterson and also featuring Maxi Hughes versus Joe Murray, the rematch of the Fight of the Year contender between Jerome Wilson vs. Serge Ambomo and many more exciting young talents.
The Fight Pass has an annual cost of £29.95 and as well as the access to the shows and advance ticket purchasing, fans get regular exclusive content in the Fight Pass area of the website including fight night highlights, interviews, a magazine show fronted by IFL TV’s Kugan Cassius, expert insight and analysis, access to archive fight nights and downloadable wallpapers, images and extras – and subscribers will receive a welcome pack including a Matchroom Boxing t-shirt.
“Over the past three years we have been involved at the v highest level of the sport,” said Hearn. “I feel we have a responsibility to grow it further by investing in all levels from grassroots to pound-for-pound champions. As our stable continues to grow, we need to be in a position to develop the careers of our fighters and give them the opportunity to perform whenever they wish.
“I am delighted to team up with in my opinion three of the very best promoters in the country in Dave Coldwell, Steve Goodwin and Steve Wood, who have consistently put on exciting and competitive shows against the odds. Now with the Matchroom Boxing Fight Pass, we hope they will continue to thrive and both their boxers and our boxers will progress onto shows with our major events on Sky Sports.
“Not only will fans get exclusive access to 10 live streamed shows a year they will also benefit from presale priority booking for all major Matchroom Boxing events, ensuring they get the best seat in the house. The platform will also feature extensive highlights from our major shows, regular training clips and a new magazine style show headed by Kugan Cassius.
“I’m excited to be part of the Matchroom Boxing Fight Pass,” said Coldwell. “Over the last couple of years at Coldwell Boxing we have built up a reputation for putting on exciting fights and I am delighted that we can add these to the Fight Pass and get even more exposure for our fighters.”
