Casino's put up the money, that's where the big money comes from, apart from American TV and PPV. US tickets are more expensive than UK tickets, and UK tickets would need to be cheaper than usual (below 20) to sell 40,000.
Well forget about American TV and PPV money because they are unaffected by an Sunday AM start in the UK. The real question is then, is the casino money/ tickets worth more than the UK tickets?

I don't think you'd need to go below 50 quid with the cheap seats to get very decent numbers in the UK.
