The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), today announced ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX, which will be broadcast live on Friday, 30 October, from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. This comes after the successful conclusion of ONE’s first pilot production on 9 October where safe management measures were adhered to. ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX will feature four World Title bouts and a total of six exciting world-class match-ups.
This event continues ONE’s partnership with the Singapore government to pilot the return of international sports productions, scheduled to take place since the country’s implementation of Covid-19 related measures earlier this year. All bouts will take place audience-free and behind closed doors at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, with only athletes, officials, and crew onsite.
In line with Singapore’s approach to resuming activities in a calibrated and safe manner, ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX will implement all necessary measures to ensure the safety of its athletes, officials, and crew.
