ONE Championship Partners with TV Tokyo


Japanese free-to-air broadcaster TV Tokyo is set to bring its viewers content from martial arts events organizer ONE Championship.

The multi-year partnership will see TV Tokyo carry a full offering of ONE Championship content every week. It will also promote ONE Championship content on its digital platforms, including BS TV TOKYO.

Chatri Sityodtong, chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, commented, “With Japan having a rich history of martial arts spanning many disciplines such as judo, karate, kendo, sumo, aikido, and more, ONE Championship is proud to be working with TV Tokyo to take martial arts to new heights. Together with TV Tokyo, ONE Championship will showcase the highest caliber of martial arts to Japanese audiences, exemplifying the bushido spirit by celebrating the values of honor, respect and humility.”

ONE Championship recently tapped Hideyuki “Andy” Hata as president of its Japanese operation. This year sees ONE Championship hosting two events in Japan. Hata joins the company from Nielsen Sports.
