Extra tickets have gone on sale for the star-studded BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.

This year’s event will be held at Leeds First Direct Arena on Sunday December 15 and was thought to be a sell out.

However, now final arrangements have been finalised extra tickets have been made available.

Halifax’s very own Hannah Cockroft is in the running for the title this year along with nine other sporting stars.

The tickets are on sale now priced at £40, £50, £60. A limited number of tickets are also available at £25 and £20 which have a partially restricted view of the VT screens being used on the night, which is as a result of the large scale production equipment required for the BBC live show.

All tickets will be subject to a 10 per cent service charge with a limit of four per person. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, minimum age 10 years.

The winner on the night will be chosen by public vote with phone numbers shown during the live show on the night. You can also vote online at bbc.co.uk/sportspersonality.

To book go to www.firstdirectarena.com or phone 0844 248 1585. Tickets can also be bought directly from the Arena ticket office at the Trinity Leeds Customer Service Lounge. The ticket office is open Monday to Saturday 9am – 8pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm. Tickets paid for in cash in person at the ticket office will not be subject to the service charge.
