Singapore-based martial arts organization, ONE Championship, has transformed into a billion-dollar property in just eight years, and behind that success is none other than the people that make up the company.
From the front office to the production professionals in the back during events, everyone has contributed to ONE’s massive growth since their inception in 2011.
Today, ONE Championship is one of only two martial arts organizations in the world with valuations in the US$1 billion-plus range, and their revenues support a US$1 billion valuation with exponential growth expected.
By exponential growth it means that ONE is on track to exceed US$100 million in revenues in the near future.
ONE has garnered such success by staying true to their theme of celebrating martial arts, Asia’s greatest cultural treasure.
In their eight years of existence, ONE has done nothing but cement their status as the Home of Martial Arts, but of course, celebrating it is not enough.
To be able to celebrate the true beauty and spirit of martial arts, ONE has brought in the best in the world when it comes to the various disciplines.
From world champions in Muay Thai and Kickboxing to decorated black belts in Jiu-Jitsu, and Judo and everything in between, ONE has the absolute biggest collection of world champions from across all platforms of martial arts.
As it stands, ONE is home to a talent pool of over 550 athletes.
Among those world class talents, over 130 of them of them are world champions across various fields of discipline.
“With over 130+ World Champions out of a roster of 550+ world class athletes, ONE Championship is the world’s greatest stage for martial arts – bar none,” proclaimed ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
These athletes have definitely helped in elevating ONE Championship’s success throughout the years, and it is highly likely that they continue to do so as the company moves forward.
ONE Championship revenues have big potential due to the large market opportunity in Asia and it has the potential to exceed those of the NFL in the long term due to the 4 billion population base in Asia.
This is why, as ONE continues to operate from Asia, the potential to grow even more is very great.
“ONE Championship is a celebration of Asia’s greatest cultural treasure and the deep-rooted values of integrity, humility, honor, respect, courage, discipline, and compassion,” said Sityodtong. “Through the power of media and the magic of storytelling, our mission is to unleash real-life superheroes, celebrate values, ignite dreams, inspire nations, and change the world.”
