For the first time in its history, Gelredome will host the world's greatest supercross riders in a non-stop bar-banging race for the checkers. Gelredome, which is the only stadium in Europe with a retractable roof, is the home of the Vitesse Soccer Club and has played host to major concerts such as the Dave Mathews Band, Janet Jackson, Brittany Spears, N'Sync, and more.

"We are very proud to host the FIM World Supercross GP at Gelredome," said Jasper van Amstel, who is the manager of the Gelredome. "For Gelredome, this certainly is an important step in the further development of our successful venue and for FIM World Supercross GP. The FIM World Supercross GP is a world-class event, which deserves a world-class venue. By mixing the unique features of Gelredome with the exciting and entertaining sport of supercross, we believe we have created a winning combination for people all over Europe."

"Arnhem, Holland's Gelredome is truly one of Europe's finest stadiums, which makes it perfect for the FIM World Supercross GP," said Mark Abernethy, director of marketing, Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports. "While AMA Supercross visits the premier stadiums in the U.S., the same holds true for the future of FIM World Supercross GP."
