More than 50,000 tickets are expected to be sold for the 2016 Track World Championships in London between March 2-6

March’s UCI Track World Championships at the Olympic Velodrome in London is set to be the biggest in the modern era, with 50,000 people predicted to attend the event.

Over 48,000 tickets have already been sold to the championships, billed as the UK’s premier sporting event of 2016, with a further 2,000 more likely to be sold before it kicks off on March 2.

With many affordable tickets still available there’s still time to attend the event, where the likes of Laura Trott, Joanna Rowsell Shand and Sir Bradley Wiggins are expected to ride.

Trott said: “This year’s UCI Track Cycling World Championships will be spectacular. It would be amazing to compete in my home city and with the backing of so many fans.

“I’m 100% focussed on making the team and winning gold in the omnium and women’s pursuit. It would be the perfect way to start what is hopefully going to be a fantastic year.”

Nine of the twelve sessions are now sold out with tickets for remaining sessions available via Ticketmaster. For further ticket availability and event information visit the track World Championships website.
