Tickets for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards have sold out in record time.

The £45 a pop tickets for the extravaganza at the SSE Arena sold out within 35 minutes of going on sale at 9am this morning.

It's the quickest time the event has sold out in its near 10 year history of touring the UK.

Taking place on Sunday, December 20 and in Northern Ireland for the first time ever, the night will see sporting greats from past and present gather in The SSE Arena, Belfast to celebrate and look back on what has been a fantastic 12 months of sport.

For those not lucky enough to secure tickets today, a limited number of tickets will be available to purchase closer to the event, once stage plans have been finalised.

Carl Doran, the show’s executive editor, said: "We are delighted that tickets for Sports Personality of the Year 2015 in Belfast have sold out so quickly.

"It’s testament to the appeal of the show and for those who got tickets or choose to watch on BBC One, it's going to be a great evening of entertainment.”

With Northern Ireland's recent successes in sport, there is sure to be a number of local heroes in with a chance of winning on the night.
