SOLO MOBILE SLAM CITY JAM – Early Bird Tickets on sale NOW!

Solo Mobile Slam City Jam has just released a limited amount of discounted Early Bird Tickets for the world’s biggest and best skateboarding competition, held in downtown Vancouver, August 26 – 28, 2005 at BC Place Stadium.

Individual tickets (for Friday, Saturday and Sunday), as well as 3-day Weekend Passes, are available through at a 15% discount Until Friday July 22!

“The excitement and energy at Slam is sparked by the incredible talent of the competitors, but it’s really the little dudes, the next generation of skateboarders, that keep that intensity all weekend long,“ said Marnie DiGiandomenico, Slam’s Director of Events. “The reduced ticket price will make it even easier for families to enjoy this great family event”.

Fans of all ages will enjoy the addition of Fan Appreciation Day (Friday, August 26th), with autograph signings by the Pros, clinics in the 15,000 sq. foot public skatepark, live music on the Soundstage, and new for 2005 – the “Legends of Street” and the “Concrete Powder Invitational Manual Pad” contests.

For three action-packed days, over 150 of the world’s top skateboarders will compete for a prize purse of more than US$100,000 at the Solo Mobile Slam City Jam, a World Cup Skateboarding points event and the world’s largest and longest-running skateboard contest.

Don’t forget to check out the Marketplace with over 60 exhibitors presenting the latest in skateboarding and youth products, and the Skatelounge featuring an all-day skate Videofest.
