Heliconia Capital Management Partners One Championship

The One Championship has entered into definitive agreements with a consortium-led by Heliconia Capital Management for an investment into the company.

With this new partnership, One Championship will continue to expand and increase the number of live Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) events across Asia, especially in China.

Chatri Sityodtong, Founder and Chairman of One Championship, said, “In less than five years, One Championship has grown into a global brand with a broadcast reach to over 1 billion homes across 118 countries around the world ... As Asia’s largest sports media property and the 2nd largest MMA organization in the world, One Championship will benefit significantly from Heliconia’s ecosystem, network, and resources.”

MMA is currently the fastest growing sport, accelerating exponentially by over 30 times in the past 10 years. In the past five years, One Championship has accelerated the growth of MMA in Asia, organising live events across the region and broadcasting around the world.

Derek Lau, CEO of Heliconia said, “We believe One Championship can potentially be the next big thing for consumers in Asia. They have the right product for Asia, they understand Asia and know how to monetise the value proposition in various ways in the new economy. We are really excited to see One Championship taking the lead in the coming years to grow the sports media and entertainment industry in Asia.”
