Courtesy of ROHworld.com attendance analysts Stephen Burns and Lavie Margolin have calculated that Ring of Honor has set a new company attendance record for its upcoming Supercard of Honor XII show.
The show, which is set to be feature Kenny Omega against Cody, has apparently lead to a ticket sales spike.
On the findings, Burns said: After my email update last week, which was approximately 3,006 tickets sold – there had been minimal further tickets sold and I would have said at the absolute best estimate, there was around 3,050 tickets sold as of Friday lunchtime (British time).
“When Omega-Rhodes was announced on Friday afternoon, there was an immediate spike in ticket sales and the total now sold for the event is 3,828 tickets – which is now an ROH record for tickets sold for an event. There is also currently approximately 50-100 seats available for re-sale on Ticketmaster which may mean the attendance is very slightly below the tickets-sold total but even with all of them subtracted, it will still be ROH’s record attendance.
For a further breakdown, the total lower tier capacity (including floor seats) is currently 3,102. After this weekend, there is now only 21 seats still available in the lower tier; with only 3 of these seats not accessible/disabled seating.
The total available capacity for the show is currently 5,162 – which means theres only 1,334 seats left for the show. There is the possibility that Section C (Lower Tier and Upper Tier) could be openend up for public sale if there is a demand, which would be about a further 600 seats. These seats have never been made available however and it may be something to do with their television and equipment set-up. There is also the possibility that they begin to open up seating to the left of the stadium however this will depend on the stage set-up they end up using.”
ROH announcer Ian Riccaboni has confirmed this number in the tweet below.
The news comes after New Japan Pro Wrestling announced that it sold out of its 4,700 tickets for its US return in 20 minutes.
