Ring of Honor issued the following press release to announce the distribution options for the G1 Supercard event that will be held on April 6 in New York at Madison Square Garden.
Baltimore, MD, February 21, 2019—Tickets for G1 Supercard, the historic pro wrestling extravaganza co-promoted by Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling on April 6, sold out Madison Square Garden in New York City within minutes after going on sale to the general public. Now, fans who didn’t purchase a ticket won’t have to miss a single second of the spectacular action!
Ring of Honor Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling are happy to announce that G1 Supercard will air LIVE on pay-per-view via cable and satellite, as well as on pay-per-view via FITE TV for $39.99.
In addition, G1 Supercard will stream LIVE for HonorClub and NJPW World, and is INCLUDED with ALL subscriptions. For HonorClub members, this is a huge bonus since normally monthly subscribers would receive the PPV at a 50% discount.
There’s never been a better time to become an HonorClub member with big shows such as 17th Anniversary from Las Vegas, Road to G1 Supercard from Baltimore, and G1 Supercard from Madison Square Garden in New York, on the horizon. Other membership benefits include a 15% discount off all merchandise in the ROH Pro Shop, priority ticket selection to upcoming shows, and access to the ROH VOD Vault and TV Archive!
The “can’t miss“ G1 Supercard begins at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on all platforms.
The word “historic” gets thrown around liberally in pro wrestling, but G1 Supercard will truly be a groundbreaking event. Fans will see all the top stars from both ROH and NJPW at G1 Supercard, and it’s expected that all the major titles from both companies will be defended.
Be a part of history on Saturday, April 6!
Powell’s POV: It’s good to see the companies have come up with several distribution options rather than limiting this event strictly to their streaming services. While HonorClub and New Japan World are both great value buys, FITE TV and traditional pay-per-view television gives fans plenty of options when it comes to ordering the event, meaning maximum revenue for the companies.
