ONE holds events for first time since pandemic
MANILA, Philippines — After a long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, ONE Championship successfully returned with back-to-back closed-door events in Shanghai, China with ONE Hero Series 13 and 14 over the weekend.
The promotion got back to staging fights for the first time since ONE: King of the Jungle in Singapore last February 28.
“We at ONE Championship are delighted to once again host the world’s most exciting martial arts events. I would like to personally thank all the fans for their continued support for our organization and our athletes,” Hua Fung Teh, Group President of ONE Championship, said.
“Shanghai served as the perfect backdrop for the prestigious ONE Hero Series, which aims to showcase the absolute best in rising young martial arts talent from China.”
In the staging of both shows, ONE said it established necessary protocols and procedures to ensure a safe and sanitary environment for its athletes and staff with extensive medical testing, travel history questionnaires, adherence to CDC Guidelines with sanitation practices, social distancing strategies, daily symptoms monitoring, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
“By enforcing strict safety and sanitary measures, we made sure to prioritize the health and well-being of everyone who made these back-to-back events a huge success. As a result, ONE Hero Series was able to share the very best of martial arts with the world, showcasing the power of the human spirit.”
