EFC is set to make a massive return to form in just under 8
weeks time with its first event since the South African national lockdown, set for 8 May.
Mega fights, groundbreaking revolutionary changes to MMA and more to be revealed over
the next few days.
During the lockdown, EFC continued to sign additional broadcast deals with the most popular
television channels across Africa, so although for the upcoming months EFC events won't
have fans in attendance in the actual arena, EFC partner brands and athletes will now get
more value and promotion across the continent than ever before; with many millions more
watching on TV.
Going forward there are over 30 of the largest TV channels in Africa that live EFC events
and other EFC programming will be broadcast on. All heavily integrated with EFC partner
branding and showcasing EFC athletes. In the next 12 months EFC will be one of the most-watched sport and entertainment properties in Africa, promoting partner brands and EFC
athletes to tens of millions of viewers; joining the current millions of fans across the globe.
EFC provides the best value of TV marketing in Africa right now.
“We are excited about the future of EFC,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. “With this
massive new audience that we are gaining, our athletes are really eager to get back in
action and compete for the top spot.” He added, “EFC has adapted to this situation, and will
be producing the highest quality product.”
EFC will host the first live bouts at EFC 85 on 8 May 2021, with 7 further events planned
over the remainder of the year.
