Cage Warriors Postpone June Events & Begin Preparations for Future Schedule

Following ongoing government measures relating to Covid-19 crisis, Cage Warriors have set new dates for their June Cardiff and London events, while also looking actively at building a busy potential schedule for later in the year.

Cage Warriors’ Cardiff event, originally scheduled for June 13th at the Viola Arena, will now take place – subject to public health guidelines – at the same venue on Saturday August 8th. The promotion’s next London date, originally scheduled for June 20th, will now take place at the Indigo at the O2 on Friday 27th November.

In addition, Cage Warriors management have set a new date in Manchester this December. With the sports events industry in constant flux, all future dates will be subject to the advice of government and public health officials.

“We’re constantly monitoring the situation in Europe, and listening to government advice,” said Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan.

“We will continue to adapt our schedule whenever we have to, but our plan is still to return at the first given opportunity with some of the biggest and best cards we can possibly put together.

“Fans and fighters will rightly deserve as much MMA as possible after our time off, which is why we’ve locked a new date in Manchester on the weekend of 11-12th December into our forward calendar. It’s a volatile situation but we might do something unique there to close out 2019: watch this space.

“I want to thank our business partners in all our venues – AEG, BEC and the Viola Arena – for their flexibility and support. It’s by all working together that we can and will get through this.”

The added Manchester event was not part of Cage Warriors original 2020 schedule, and is being planned to keep the promotion’s growing roster active and to meet the demand from fans.
