BC Combat Sports Promoters, Competitors and Officials

Dear Stakeholders, 
 

On March 12, 2020 the BC Athletic Commission followed the direction of the BC Provincial Health Officer and cancelled all events that would have created a gathering of more than 250 people. As the situation escalated, the BC Provincial Health Officer initiated social distancing along with the restriction on all social gatherings of 50 or more people.

A working group has submitted a draft proposal of industry guidelines for Non-Audience Events. As a result of this, the BCAC has extended the cancellation of all Combat Sports events until the review process of the Draft Guidelines has been completed. 

Kelly Gilday
BC Athletic Commissioner
