We have 40 complimentary tickets per day to attend a LIVE taping of Crowd Goes Wild at Chelsea Piers in New York City!
Unpredictable, unconventional and irreverent describe Crowd Goes Wild, FOX Sports 1’s new original sports discussion and analysis program, and all most definitely describe five eclectic personalities named today to join renowned host Regis Philbin.
Veteran Wall Street Journal sports columnist Jason Gay; professional tennis player turned comedian Michael Kosta; two-time Super Bowl Champion and four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Trevor Pryce; and Sky Sports host and news anchor Georgie Thompson, along with Guyism.com personality and YouTube sensation Katie Nolan serving as social media correspondent, team with Regis to come at the day’s sports news and issues with conversation more lively, more entertaining and less argumentative than current offerings.
“There are sports news shows, debate shows and shows that present a single point-of-view, but CROWD GOES WILD is aiming for a fresh approach,” said Executive Producer Michael Davies. “CROWD GOES WILD is going to live in the moment, presenting multiple points of view, with the conversation often influenced by the audience through social interaction. Regis, Jason, Michael, Trevor, Georgie and Katie will embrace the freedom and spontaneity this free-flowing, less staid, format offers and I have no doubt fans will too.”
In addition to featuring conversation directed by its panelists’ contrasting viewpoints and social interaction with viewers, the alternative CROWD GOES WILD (@CGW) welcomes in-studio guests from sports and entertainment, and incorporates every asset FOX Sports offers, ranging from live satellite interviews with on-air personalities to cast members serving as correspondents at major events.
“All over sports television, it’s easy to find people arguing with each other or pontificating over the topics of the day, and it doesn’t come across as being much fun, or often that authentic,” added Davies. “Clearly, there’s another approach, which more closely mirrors the multiple points of view held by fans, bloggers, journalists and athletes across the sports landscape, and where we can have some fun and create some entertainment while debating the big games, the major players and the hottest stories.”
The hour-long CROWD GOES WILD airs live weekdays (5:00-6:00 PM ET) on FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network. The program originates from Chelsea Piers Studios in New York City, and is produced before a studio audience by Embassy Row Productions.

CAN I REQUEST MORE THAN TWO TICKETS?
Unfortunately, we only allow individuals to request two tickets at this time. If there are additional members in your party we recommend they create an account on 1iota.com and request tickets as a separate group. In the event they do receive tickets we will make reasonable attempts to seat parties together, but this may not always be a possibility.
WHEN WILL I FIND OUT IF MY TICKET REQUEST HAS BEEN APPROVED?
If tickets are available for the show you requested, you will be contacted approximately two weeks prior to the show by email. Not all ticket requests can be honored, and we will contact you only if your ticket request has been approved. Please note that from time-to-time, last minute tickets may become available and we may contact you closer to the show date you requested. Receiving a ticket within 24 hours of a taping is highly unlikely.
HOW CAN I GET STANDBY TICKETS?
Standby tickets are occasionally available approximately 90 minutes prior to showtime. A 1iota representative will direct you to the appropriate line when you arrive.
CAN I TAKE PICTURES?
We do not allow any sort of photography inside the studio. This applies both before, during, and after the taping. No photos of any kind are allowed once you enter the building.
Restrooms are located inside the studio. Restroom use is allowed prior to the start of taping. The taping is one hour live, so we ask that you please remain in your seats for the entire taping once we have started.
I GOT TURNED AWAY! WHAT NOW?
We overbook slightly and cannot guarantee admission. We always recommend arriving early. If you arrive late you do risk being turned away. When that happens we will still scan your ticket and mark it as turned away. You will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to attend a future taping. Please note that we will make every effort to accommodate turned away parties at the earliest convenience - space permitting.
