SuperKombat's 2013 came to a close after their last SuperKombat WGP event that saw new champions crowned in many divisions, including a SuperKombat WGP Champion for the third year running. As SuperKombat looks ahead into 2014 they have decided to begin licensing out the brand to interested promoters to help to bring SuperKombat to more cities than they alone could do. It's an interesting idea that we've seen other promotions do, namely K-1 over the past year with their K-1 World Tour events, which can make everyone happy.
SuperKombat gets money from licensing out the brand, as well as finds new talent from these promoters, while the promoters get to promote a larger brand with their own local stars. Fighters also get experience on a show with a solid name brand and can leverage that for more opportunities in the future. It's a win-win for everyone.
“Those kind of events are not organized by SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship but the promoters can get the license to host the elimination bouts. The winners of these qualification fights will have their places in SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s events, including the New Heroes and the World Grand Prix series. On the other hand, all the events and qualification fights included in other events will be announced exclusively on SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s website at www.superkombat.com," added Eduard Irimia.
