Premier Media Broadcasting has acquired the rights to Karate Combat’s second season in the UK and will air the weekly Friday night fights on FreeSports.
Karate Combat Season 2 features bouts between the world’s top athletes in four virtual worlds rendered in real-time using Unreal Engine, the video game engine behind Fortnite.
“The UK and Ireland are home of what are probably the most discerning fight fans in the world,” said Adam S. Kovacs, League President of Karate Combat (who is also a world karate champion). “I’m confident we’ll have them screaming their guts out watching our fights and FreeSports is the perfect broadcast partner to reach them when they get home from the pubs on Friday nights.”
Richard Webb, COO of FreeSports, added: “This is exciting news for karate fans in the UK and Ireland with an incredible amount of Karate Combat action broadcasting each Friday night on FreeSports. Karate is one of the most popular martial arts in the United Kingdom and we’re delighted to make the fights free to air in each home.”
