Court injunction halts XSport Games

Posted:

MNSW has advised that Final Siren Events is unable to stage the upcoming XSport Games over the weekend of 13-14 November 2010.

This is due to an international broadcast company seeking a court injunction preventing the event from taking place. Partly due to this action, the Sydney Showground has also decided to revoke the event licence.

In a statement MNSW said, "Both actions have shocked the team at Final Siren Events, who have been working tirelessly towards making the XSport Gameså¨ a reality for the 10 Action Sports Associations involved, including MNSW, and its associated riders and families.

"Final Siren Events, as well as MNSW, recognises and appreciates the amount of time and effort sponsors and the National Sporting bodies have invested in their support of this event.

"At this time, we also feel for over 300+ athletes and their families from around the country who have booked their tickets, accommodation and flights to compete.

"It is unconscionable that both parties have chosen to issue this action at the 11th hour, leaving Final Siren Events no option for meeting its commitment to stage this auspicious event.

"We are in the process of challenging this action, and encourage you to join them in this fight for the Action Sports Industry - as a whole," the statement concluded.

More information will be made available soon, following further legal advice.

In the meantime, Motorcycling NSW will continue talks with various industry parties in regard to following through with the NSW FMX Cup - integrating it into a 3-round State Championship series - kicking off early in the new year.
