ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE Converted To Closed-Door Event For Broadcast

As ONE Championship places the health and safety of all athletes, staff, and the thousands of fans in Singapore as the utmost priority, the organization has deemed it necessary to close ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE to the general public.

Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, stated: “In light of the coronavirus situation in Singapore, I have made the decision to convert ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE on February 28 into a closed event for broadcast only. The Singapore Indoor Stadium will not be open to the general public.

“The event will now proceed behind closed doors. All scheduled live TV and digital platform streams across 150+ countries around the world will continue as planned. More than ever, the world needs hope and strength right now. Our heroes are prepared to inspire you with the greatest performances of their lives.

“At ONE Championship, our mission since Day 1 has been to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. I am incredibly proud of our athletes, especially those in Singapore who despite all that is going on have chosen to march forward and show the world what we can do. Let us unite as a country and show strength as a continent to conquer the coronavirus.”
