Nitro Circus coming to Eden Park

Eden Park Stadium has announced it will be hosting sports entertainment Nitro Circus in March next year.

The event will feature the best athletes in FMX, BMX and skate on brand new ramps - and it's expected to draw a big crowd.

Eden Park Trust says it will show the facility's ability to host diverse activities.

"Many Aucklanders are seeking new experiences that aren't the traditional sports and entertainment events we usually see at stadiums in our international city," said Eden Park chief executive Nick Sautner.

"Some have never attended a rugby or cricket match at Eden Park and we look forward to hosting that new demographic, as well as our core fans."

The announcement comes just weeks after a charity event was cancelled after residents in the area complained about the potential noise and disruption.

Nitro Circus president Andy Edwards said Eden Park, with a capacity of 50,000, is the "number one" stadium in New Zealand.

Pre-sales begin on August 22, while the general public will be able to buy tickets from August 27.

The show will take place on March 9.
