Prime Video and ONE Championship (ONE) have announced a multi-year agreement for Prime Video to air 12 live ONE martial arts events annually, as the streaming platform continues to bolster its live sports content. The full live events will be available exclusively on Prime Video in the US and Canada. The first event will be announced later this year.
ONE, the Singapore-baed martial arts organisation, represents the full spectrum of martial arts, with world-class athletes representing over 80 countries competing across MMA, Muay Thai, kickboxing, submission grappling and other disciplines.
Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO at ONE Championship, commented: “ONE 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. As the world’s largest martial arts organisation, 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 Circle and on Prime Video.”
