We regret to announce that the scheduled 5 Star Wrestling event next Thursday night in Aberdeen has been postponed. The show will now take place on Thursday, April 12. 


This decision has been made in light of the severe weather and travel chaos which not only affected our last show in Belfast, leaving key members of our team stranded, but has already had significant knock-on effects impacting this week’s scheduled show.


With more snow set to fall, weather warnings still in place and flights being cancelled/backed-up, we have no way of guaranteeing the quality of the show and rather than powering through, hoping for the best, we have taken the decision to reschedule the event to April 12 to ensure that the people of Aberdeen get the best show possible and that we're giving them as much notice as possible on the rescheduling. 

Fans who purchased their tickets will receive an email directly from their ticket providers over the next day or two.


Last week, wrestlers, staff and production crew braved the worst snow storm to hit the UK in 50 years to ensure that the fans in Belfast were still given a wrestling show and that our weekly TV show on FreeSports went ahead as scheduled. However the TV show had to go ahead as an abbreviated two-hour programme because flight delays and cancellations caused key members of team to arrive on site too late to produce the regular three-hour edition. Many of the matches and angles had to be made on the fly with the roster members struggling to reach the venue and several key members of the team are still stuck in Belfast as a result of the travel delays.


With weather warnings still in place across the UK and the increased likelihood of further snow with more travel problems expected over the coming weekend, we are concerned that the transport networks may not recover fully in time for next week's event. Wanting to avoid a repeat of the issues which affected our event in Belfast, we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule.


We apologise for any inconvenience to any fans who have bought tickets for the March 8 event at the BHGE Arena in Aberdeen. If you have already purchased a ticket to the event on March 8, your existing ticket will automatically be valid for April 12. Any customers requiring a refund can claim one by contacting your point of purchase (ie Ticketmaster or refunds@5starwrestling.co.uk) .


Our next live event will be at the Manchester Arena on Thursday, March 22.


Our already-announced events in Leeds (March 29), Birmingham (April 5), Dundee (April 19), Blackburn (April 26) and Cardiff (May 10) will go ahead as scheduled and we will be announcing further dates over the next seven days including a return to Plymouth Pavilions, hoping to build on the successful and widely-acclaimed event held there last Thursday. 


We will provide further information in due course.
