ONE Championship could be on its way to India in 2020 according to CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong. Sityodtong revealed the same in a press release which was sent out by the ONE Championship team covering the 2020 Event Schedule for the promotion.

Sityodtong noted that serious initial discussions are going on at the moment for an event in India.

“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% confirmed yet for US and India, serious initial discussions have been underway,” he noted.

The ONE CEO also went on to address the success that the promotion enjoyed in 2019.

“2019 was a pivotal year for ONE Championship. 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.”

The following events are currently confirmed by ONE Championship for the first half of 2020 and hopefully, we will get to see the addition of a fight card in India soon.
