MEET & GREET (6.45 – 7.30pm)
We will be holding a meet & greet with some of the stars of MCW New Horizons once doors open. We have not sold passes for this event, and talent will be charging their own individual prices accordingly for photo ops, autographs and merchandise. Please note that this will be CASH ONLY.
We will look to provide more opportunities for meet & greets at the conclusion on the event, but this is something that we won’t be able to guarantee until the night.
DOORS OPEN & EVENT TICKET SALES FOR NEW HORIZONS (6.30pm)
As advertised, we will have tickets for New Horizons available on the night. Tickets cost $30 per person.
If you have not yet purchased tickets, we advise being at the venue a little earlier, in order to ensure you’re able to get in, and get a seat. There will be extra spaces for standing room admission, as we want as many people as possible to be able to witness the best night of professional wrestling that Melbourne has to offer.
PLEASE NOTE: We only allow cash sales for tickets purchased at the venue, and at the merchandise tables. Apologies for the inconvenience!
If you pre-ordered tickets and they have not yet arrived, you’ll still be able to get in. We will have a door list with all ticket orders included on it. Feel free to bring your PayPal receipt email for peace of mind if you wish.
NEW HORIZONS START & FINISH TIMES (7.30pm onwards)
MCW New Horizons kicks off at 7.30pm sharp. We will have an intermission during the event, where we will have merchandise available, as well as pre-order tickets for ‘MCW Collision Course’, our September 9th return to the MCW Arena in Essendon.
We anticipate MCW New Horizons will wrap up between 10.30 and 11pm.
As with all our events, we encourage our fans to make their voices heard during the event, but please be mindful of fans around you. There are families with children present, and we want this to be an enjoyable night for fans of all ages. Consistent bad language and behaviour will result in your ejection from the building. Please do not bring outside food and drink, as it is not permitted by the venue.
We also ask fans not to throw anything into the ring, or jump the guardrails. We will have a hashtag, #MCWHorizons , set up for the event, and we encourage you to interact with us via social media throughout the night.
There will also be a bar and some light snacks available (cash only).
Above all else, thank you for being a part of this event, and we look forward to bringing you MCW New Horizons on Saturday night! See you there!
