The Monster Energy Arenacross Tour is back for 2017 and once again the high-octane action will be returning to Birmingham! The Genting Arena will host Round 3 of the Tour so make your way to the Midlands on Saturday 21st of January for an action packed night of furious entertainment for the whole family.
AX throws together an intoxicating mix of world-class indoor Motocross Racing, high-flying Freestyle Motocross and a show to rival any music festival including lights, lasers, pyro and a pumping soundtrack. With thousands of fans streaming through the doors every year, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been a two-wheeled enthusiast all your life or if you have no clue about bikes – there are few better ways to banish those January blues.
The 2017 Arenacross tour will again be a truly international affair, with some of the best Professional racers from across the world taking on the top Brits across a set of tightly-packed classes. Young racing warriors from the age of seven will take to the track too and, like their heroes that they aspire to be, engage in fierce competition with a single-minded determination to claim Arenacross glory.
Away from the racing, the crammed Tour programme will include radical Freestyle Motocross, where the giants of the FMX world will showcase their breath-taking skills and try to outdo each other with their tricks and backflips, some forty foot above the arena floor. In the past we’ve had the likes of the European God Father of FMX and recent X-Games bronze medallist Edgar Torronteras, Top Brit Jamie ‘Squibby’ Squibb who is fresh off the Nitro Circus Tour and the Czech giant Petr Pilat who has wowed audiences all around the world with his ridiculously awesome and spectacular style. Following Birmingham, the Tour will rock up to a further three of the UK’s leading arenas when Belfast, Sheffield and London get a chance to witness the Arenacross magic.
With its highly-charged atmosphere, thumping beat, lasers, lights, and presenter hype, onlookers are left in no doubt that being an Arenacross spectator means they’re as much a part of the show as the racers themselves. It’s an epic night out! Be a part of the action and get your ticket now!

There’s loads going on before the show so why not get the party started that little bit earlier, grab a drink and a bite to eat, and enjoy some pre-show entertainment right here at the Genting Arena.
To find out more about what we have to offer take a look at our Pre show section .
Arenacross is the crazy indoor off-spring of motocross racing first conceived in America in the 1970s. The sport takes the most spectacular elements of outdoor racing, boils them down into a concentrated cocktail and then shoehorns them into arenas onto purpose-built dirt tracks. Racing is short, sharp and shockingly spectacular with huge triple jumps, killer mogul sections and fast, banked corners all designed to provide a high-octane sensory feast.
