BREAKING NEWS! 2020 MONSTER ENERGY CUP IS OFFICIALLY CANCELED
The 2020 Monster Energy Cup Supercross, which was originally slated to occur on October 10th, has officially been canceled after FELD Entertainment concluded that it would be too difficult to secure an appropriate location to host the event this fall with the coronavirus crisis still widely affecting public events across the globe. We expected news about a cancelation or postponement to come sooner or later as the 2020 AMA Nationals are also scheduled to race on October 10th for their final round in Pala, California, at Fox Raceway. With the Nationals already adjusting their schedule to allow Supercross to finish their season (and to give themselves more time to prepare) we knew that Supercross would return the favor and reschedule the Monster Cup. However, with the difficulty of putting a major event together during these wild times, it makes sense why FELD would cancel the Monster Cup all together.
After a 9-year run in Las Vegas, Nevada’s Sam Boyd Stadium, the 2020 Monster Energy Cup was looking to kick off another chapter with the event held inside the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. However, the circumstances have changed and now the 10th running of MEC will have to wait until 2021. Still, FELD is happy to announce that digital viewership with up for the 2020 season and they are looking forward to having fans back in the stadium in 2021.
2020 MEC SUPERCROSS CANCELED
FELD Entertainment press release: Monster Energy Supercross was the first pro sport to successfully complete the 2020 season with an adjusted schedule this year. The goal was to bring live racing to fans and crown three new champions in a safe environment. Without fans in attendance for the final 7 races, Supercross continued to have a strong presence on both TV and digital platforms. Viewership was up 29% in 2020 and Supercross was one of the most popular programs on NBCSN in the first quarter. Over 2.4 million fans visited SupercrossLIVE, while over 5.5 million people followed a Supercross social platform generating over 18.8 million social engagements during the season.
Feld Motor Sports continues to look towards the future for Supercross fans and its athletes and is eager for next season. Unfortunately, the Monster Energy Cup that had been scheduled for October 10 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA will not be feasible this year, due to other leagues starting their seasons and the difficulty of securing an appropriate location to host the event in the fall. In conjunction with the Monster Energy Cup, the 2020 Supercross Futures AMA National Championship will also be cancelled.
