Knockout Sunday action!

Tickets are selling fast for Sunday’s (June 6) local derby cup tie between the Eastbourne Eagles and Kent Kings at Arlington Stadium (3.30pm).

Once again, Covid restrictions means there will be no on-the-door admission by cash and card.

Tickets must be pre-purchased via the club website for this Championship KO Cup tie, first leg.

Don’t miss out, buy today before they are all gone.

The Kent cup tie is the Eagles first Sunday afternoon fixture of 2021.

Club co-promoter Trevor Geer explained why the switch had been made from a Saturday evening.

“Our good friends at Kent asked for the change to Sunday because, when the fixtures were first announced, long-time Arlington favourite and new Kings skipper Scott Nicholls was unavailable on the Saturday.

“He was expected to be fulfilling TV commitments around the Speedway GP series and we were happy to accommodate Kent and switch to Sunday.

“Our fans want to see Scott and so do the Kent fans.

“It makes total sense for both clubs to co-operate like this, while maintaining the fierce on-track rivalry.

“Sunday afternoon fixtures are usually very popular and after the fantastic atmosphere last Saturday let’s fill Arlington up to the limit once again so that we can help to secure the future of the Club and hopefully start a long and successful cup run,” Geer said.

  • Following feedback from supporters, there will be added food and drink outlets in all areas. More details later in the week.
