Rider Tickets

November 24 2011

The first allocation of Rider Tickets is available from 9am, 1st December.

All Riders participating in the World Championships in Birmingham will receive a WINGS accreditation wristband that will grant access to the required areas of the arena, including spectator seating, for all sessions EXCEPT the Friday and Saturday Evening Final Shows. 

Riders who wish to watch the racing from the spectator seating on the Friday and Saturday Evening Final Shows will be required to purchase an exclusive ‘Rider Ticket’ offering a 15% discount off standard prices. 

Rider tickets can be purchased through this special link when using the password BMXRIDER:


Please note that this link is for rider tickets only and all spectator tickets must be purchased through the Ticket Factory website.

Rider tickets will only be valid when presented with a 2012 World Championships WINGS wristband – those unable to present a wrist band with their ticket will be denied entry and asked to upgrade their ticket at the box office at the NIA

Please only buy a ticket through this link once you are sure that you will be competing in Birmingham.  Riders do not require a ticket for Thursday, Friday morning qualifiers and Saturday morning qualifiers and Sunday.

We appreciate that riders racing on the Friday and Saturday will not know if the are riding in the Evening finals show until they have qualified in the mornings motos. Therefore riders who buy a stand-alone Evening Finals Show ticket and subsequently qualify to race in the Evening Finals Show will have a window of time following the motos and before doors open for the Finals Show to refund their tickets should they wish. (conditions apply see below)

A very limited reserved standing area will be made available adjacent to the track only for riders racing on the Friday and Saturday who do not wish to buy a ticket for the Arena seating.  There will be no charge for this area and it will be accessed using the WINGS accredited wristband.  However, please note that it will be limited standing room only and no access will be granted to standard ticket holders. Should you want to guarantee to watch the evening racing with family and friends you are strongly advised to purchase a rider ticket. 

A Moto Pass is available for friends and families of riders wishing to access the venue for the whole championships. The 15% discount on Friday and Saturday night tickets is also available to moto pass buyers this is available through the Ticket Factory website


All seating is un-reserved.

The Pits area and Pre-staging will only be accessible to accreditation holders

Refunds for qualified riders will not be done outside the specified window of time which will be confirmed in the morning of the competition and the official UCI start list will determine riders who are eligible. Returned tickets will be placed back on sale immediately. No other refunds will be given.

Riders will not be able to access the arena concourse and seating on Friday and Saturday evening without a ticket.
