Lance Armstrong set for live public interview in Dublin in October

Lance Armstrong is coming to Dublin in October for a 90-minute ‘no-holds barred’ interview live on stage at the RDS on Friday, October 21.

The interview, part of the inaugural One Zero sports conference, will be his only European speaking engagement of 2016.

“Lance Armstrong has been the most jaw dropping story in sport in 20 years,” co-founder Richard Barrett said.

“Everyone has an opinion but very few have heard his story first hand with all the cards on the table.”

“Having him speak openly and with candour about his past, with a world class interviewer - who we will be revealing shortly, is a signal of the intent of One Zero to tackle the major issues in sport from money and fans to technology and doping.”

Other leading figures on the day looking at the future of sport will include one-time candidate for the Presidency of FIFA, Jaimie Fuller of Skins, and Twitter’s Head of Sport, Alex Trickett.

Further keynote speakers will be announced in the coming weeks for a conference that intends to delve into such topics as e-sports, digital media, ethics in sport, fan engagement, innovation and sports investment.

Limited places are available with general admission tickets on sale from this morning through www.ticketmaster.ie as well as a number of VIP packages.
