ONE Championship has inked a new broadcast arrangement with the streaming service giant, Amazon Prime Video. Following this development, One Championship has been made available to the North American public significantly.
The organization, which had operated nearly entirely in Asia for the past ten years, has agreed to a five-year arrangement with Amazon that will see at least 12 events annually broadcast live on the OTT platform throughout the United States of America and Canada.
Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Submission Grappling, and other combat sports are included in the promotion’s fight card lineups.
“ONE Championship is thrilled to work with Prime Video, one of the largest premium sports content providers in the world, to bring our live events closer to fans in the United States and Canada,” said, ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
“As the world’s largest martial arts organization, we believe our collaboration with Prime Video will allow us to reach a wider North American audience that is hungry for an authentic and differentiated product you simply cannot get with any other organization. We look forward to showcasing the absolute greatest martial artists on the planet right here in the ONE Championship Circle and on Prime Video.”
“We are proud to add exclusive coverage of ONE Championship events to our suite of marquee live sports offerings,” stated, Marie Donoghue, Vice President of global sports video at Amazon.
“In addition to offering a full suite of martial arts disciplines, ONE Championship shares our mutual commitment to elevate female athletes, boasting five reigning female world champions.”
Former UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez, as well as local emerging talents like Angela Lee, are among the famous MMA fighters on the ONE Championship roster.
The date and venue of ONE Championship’s Prime Video debut will be announced later this year.
