WSX Abu Dhabi GP kicks off the race season, adding to Yas Island’s lineup of world-class events and entertainment.

SX Global announced that Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, will host the penultimate round of the FIM World Supercross Championship (WSX) in 2023. 

The WSX Abu Dhabi GP will be held over two days at the Etihad Arena on Yas Island Nov. 4-5, 2023. The historic event will be the first time a World Supercross event has been held in the region. Tickets will go on sale next month. 

“We’re extremely proud to announce the WSX Abu Dhabi GP. Yas Island is known for the standard of excellence in hosting some of the biggest events in the region including other major events like Formula 1, UFC and NBA,” said SX Global CEO Adam Bailey.

“This event will mark the first-ever Supercross event held in the region and is a significant milestone for both WSX and the sport of supercross. The fact that Abu Dhabi is the home of our strategic investment partner in Mubadala Capital makes it even more special.”

Ethara is one of the region’s biggest event, entertainment and venue management companies. In partnership with Miral, it operates multiple event venues on Yas Island, including the Etihad Arena, the Middle East’s largest state-of-the-art indoor entertainment venue. Over the past 15 years, Ethara has delivered over 700 major events in the region for more than 16 million fans, including the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and Yasalam After-Race Concerts. 

Saif Rashid Al Noaimi, CEO of Ethara, said, “FIM World Supercross is a fantastic new event for Yas Island, and it underpins our pioneering approach in the major event industry.” He continues, “This exciting announcement is testament to our commitment to delivering unique experiences, further building our reputation for best-in-class sport and entertainment events. We are looking forward to welcoming WSX fans to the Etihad Arena in November and delivering unforgettable moments.”

Mohamed Al Zaabi, Group CEO at Miral, the leading creator of immersive destinations and experiences in Abu Dhabi, said, “We are proud to see WSX Abu Dhabi GP come to Abu Dhabi and specifically to Yas Island as it continues to grow as a leading global events hub. This is yet another great addition to the island’s event calendar and a testament to its position as a top global destination for entertainment and leisure. We aim to create unforgettable memories for all visitors to Yas Island, who will be able to attend this first event of its type in the region while enjoying unique and immersive world-class experiences and attractions.”
