ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong had been teasing a massive announcement for the company in recent months, and he has delivered on his promise after securing a five-year deal with Prime Video to air ONE events in the United States and Canada.
ONE Championship Announces Deal With Prime Video
The announcement came on Wednesday via press release.
The multi-year agreement will see 12 live events broadcast exclusively by the streaming giant.
“ONE Championship 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,” said Sityodtong.
“As the world’s largest martial arts organization, 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 Championship Circle and on Prime Video.”
Prime Video has been adding a plethora of sports properties to its roster. ONE now joins the likes of the New York Yankees, the NFL’s Thursday Night Football, and the WNBA, among many others.
Amazon’s Vice President of Global Sports Video, Marie Donoghue, was enthusiastic about the partnership.
“We are proud to add exclusive coverage of ONE Championship events to our suite of marquee live sports offerings,” said Donoghue.
“In addition to offering a full suite of martial arts disciplines, ONE Championship shares our mutual commitment to elevate female athletes, boasting five reigning female World Champions.”
The first event to be streamed on Prime Video will be announced later this year.
