The Indian MMA team received support from a string of big names ahead of their campaign at the 2022 IMMAF MMA World Championship which is held in Serbia from 11 February 2023 to 18 February 2023.

MMA India Vice President Ajay Marwah details the support that the Indian team received in an exclusive interview with LockerRoom India recently.

“We were very lucky to get sponsorships from the Poonawalla Group, as you know they have made the Covishield vaccine for the world and then we managed to get sponsorships from Raymond’s. They have sponsored the entire blazers for Team India. They have done a very fine job and this is the same quality and build that Raymond’s supplies to the Indian cricket team. We were very fortunate to get support from the JK group of companies, they were very generous and understood a cause and didn't take any moment to help us financially,” he said.  

“411 Fight Wear has been very generous in sponsoring the tracksuits of the Indian team along with the rash guards, t-shirts and shorts. So this time, The team has done a lot for the athletes whatever money they had put in, most of the money has already gone back to them into the bank accounts and over and above, they're getting a lot of good merchandise to help them in Serbia,” Ajay added.

Speaking further, he also noted that the support of more sponsors can help speed up the growth of MMA in India and subsequently, create more world-class athletes from the country.

A total of six athletes represented the nation this year at the IMMAF World Championship including former World Championship medalist Vridhi Kumari and Junior World Champion Mahboob Khan. Team India had also met with the Indian Ambassador in Serbia, Mr. Sanjiv Kohli on the day of their arrival in Serbia.
