One Championship Announces Initial Plans for 2020 Schedule; U.S. Event in the Works

By Cole Shelton Nov 4, 2019
One Championship has laid out the first half of its 2020 plans.

The Singapore-based promotion is expected to hold a minimum of 50 events in the next year, according to CEO Chatri Sityodtong.

“2019 was a pivotal year for One Championship,” Sityodtong said in a press release. “In addition to increasing our reach and deepening our engagement in our core markets across Asia, we held our first events in Japan and Vietnam. One Championship also established its initial broadcast presence in the United States and India with live broadcasts and delayed re-runs. For 2020, our goal is to push the boundaries and expand our reach, frequency, and engagement across all core geographies.

"For the coming year, One Championship intends to hold a minimum of 50 events, including those from One Championship, One Hero Series, One Warrior Series, and ONE Esports. More announcements will be coming shortly for the 2020 calendar,” he continued. “In addition, if all goes according to plan, we hope to throw our first events in the United States, India, and Korea in 2020. While nothing is 100 percent confirmed yet for U.S. and India, serious initial discussions have been underway. Also, with the success of ONE Hero Series China, we will now launch ONE Hero Series Philippines, our local league in the Philippines, in 2020 to widen our search for the next global martial arts superstar.”

One Championship will hold its first event of 2020 on Jan. 19 in Bangkok, Thailand. They have confirmed two events in every month from January to June, but they will announce more dates shortly.

Notable dates are Feb. 28 in Singapore, April 5 in Tokyo, and June 19 in South Korea. There are no confirmed dates for a United States show at this time.
