NJPW announces August 31 show in London, England

 
 

New Japan Pro Wrestling will be traveling to the United Kingdom for one show on August 31.

The show will be held at The Copper Box Arena, a multi-sport venue used for the 2012 Summer Olympics, located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Hackney Wick, London. The arena hosts around 7,000 seats and considering the popularity of the promotion it should not be a problem to sell out.

In addition of the London show, NJPW announced several shows for the year 2019 starting with The New Beginning in Sapporo on February 2 and 3. On February 11 it’s The New Beginning in Osaka, followed by two shows in Niigata on March 23 and 24 for the New Japan Cup. There’s the already-announced G1 SuperCard with ROH at Madison Square Garden in New York for April 6 and an untitled show on April 20 in Aichi.

May 3 and 4 will be the Wrestling Dontaku in Fukuoka and the Best of the Super Jr. 26 will follow on June 5 in Tokyo. Four days later on June 9 there will be Dominion 6.9 in Osaka and the G1 Climax 29 will be held on July 6 in Houston. G1 Climax 29 continues on July 13 and 14 in Tokyo, on July 15 in Hokkaido, and on August 10, 11, and 12 in Tokyo again.
