Resumption of Professional Combat Sports
12/17/2020

BC Athletic Commissioner will start the process to initiate the resumption of Professional Combat Sports in 2021.

 

It is with an abundance of caution that the BC Athletic Commissioner will start the process to initiate the resumption of Professional Combat Sports in 2021.
 
As of January 01, 2021, promoters may apply for permits to hold Non-Audience Professional Combat Sports events.
 
Events must have a Covid-19 Safety Plan in place that meets the requirements of the current PHO orders along with WorksafeBC regulations. Industry Guidelines have been created and are available to assist with the event planning process.
 
The promoter of an event must apply to the commissioner for an event permit at least 60 days before the proposed date of the event.
