As Thailand’s largest sporting goods company, FBT has been a strong supporter of many sports for years, as well as being a strong supporter of IFMA.
April 3rd was one of the most glorious occasions in the history of Muaythai, for so many reasons. His Majesty the King donated a Royal Trophy in his own name towards the ultimate fighter for this event, and it was truly an incredible evening of ceremony, competition and culture. Read More
It has been many, many years in the making, but now muaythai has earned the right to apply for the highest recognition in sports: IOC. Muaythai under IFMA is already recognised by the Olympic Committee of Asia (OCA), and by SportAccord, which unites 104 world-recognised sports, such as football (FIFA) and basketball (FIBA), to name a few.
Much planning has gone into preparations, and muaythai has been praised by WADA for their fair play focused, anti-doping program, and also their educational drug awareness efforts. Muaythai has also been recognised by TAFISA, Sport for All, and is included in many multi-sports games. April 3rd will be the official launch of the campaign for IOC recognition, but it will also be a historic day for many more reasons.
