Tickets for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2019, taking place at P&J Live, were snapped up within just five minutes of going on sale.
That is the quickest sell-out for the prestigious show since it went on the road in 2006.
Bosses for both the event and for P&J Live were delighted at the north-east’s enthusiasm – and said a limited number of extra tickets will be available closer to the glittering event on December 15.
BBC Sports Personality of the Year executive editor Carl Doran said: “We are thrilled that tickets for Sports Personality of the Year 2019 in Aberdeen have sold out so quickly.
“Within five minutes is just incredible and a testament to the warm welcome we have received from our host city Aberdeen.”
His sentiments were echoed by Louise Stewart, head of entertainment at P&J Live.
She said: “We knew that the north-east of Scotland would embrace this event.
“It’s a massive coup for the venue, the city and for Scotland. We look forward to ending the year on a high.”
Presenters Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan will take to the stage to celebrate the year of sport in front of an audience of 10,000 with millions more expected to watch live on BBC One.
It will see the cream of the sporting world gathering in the Granite City in a celebration of outstanding achievements over the past 12 months.
Nine prestigious titles are up for grabs including Sports Personality of the Year, Greatest Sporting Moment, World Sport Star of the Year, Coach of the Year, Young Sports Personality of the Year and the Lifetime Achievement award.
This year has already seen several ground-breaking sporting moments, including the England men’s team winning the Cricket World Cup for the first time, the longest singles final in history at Wimbledon between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic and Tiger Woods achieving his fifth Masters title.
Alongside the main event, the inaugural BBC Festival of Sport will take place in Aberdeen on December 13-14.
It will give local schoolchildren and members of the public the opportunity to try a variety of sporting activities, with BBC Sport talent on hand to offer tips and encouragement.
