Muaythai becomes 63rd Sport to be Recognised by Sri Lankan Sport Ministry

The Muaythai Association of Sri Lanka (MTASL) is one of IFMA’s newest members, having submitted their application to IFMA in October 2016.

Their application was reviewed by the IFMA Sport Director together with the IFMA Legal Commission and will be forwarded with positive recommendation to the next IFMA Annual General Meeting which is due to take place at the next World Championships in Minsk, Belarus this May.

On January 30th, an announcement was published by Dayasiri Jayasekara, Sri Lankan Minister of Sports that Muaythai is now recognised as the 63rd nationally recognised sport in Srilanka.

We wish to congratulate the MTASL for this wonderful news and encourage the further and ongoing development of the sport and the Sri Lankan athletes.
