“We are immensely grateful for the support of the Kano State Government as well as our local partners, Cloud9Sports, and MTN Nigeria. We also thank our Season One sponsors, Hypo, Indomie, Bet9ja, Amstel Malta, Climax, APO, and AIICO Multishield, who have been instrumental in making this event possible. The vision for DWL is to elevate the traditional Nigerian combat sport of Dambe to global prominence, while supporting our host communities along the way. We believe that Nigerians should take pride in this cultural export that has evolved over generations, and DWL is committed to making this a reality,” said Hugh Guill, CEO of Dambe Warriors League.

Dambe Warriors provides training and personal development opportunities for their young warriors by investing time and resources into men themselves, their families, and their communities. The objective of the league is to harness, polish, distribute, and effectively manage the Dambe ecosystem while preserving the tradition, honour, and spirit that have driven the sport forward for centuries.

As DWL partners Anthony Okeleke and Chidi Anyina note, “Our broader ambition is to place Africa at the centre of the combat sports universe, beginning by showcasing Dambe’s vast potential and ensuring it is recognised and respected as a formidable sport on the global stage. Dambe SuperFight 01 represents an important step toward achieving these goals, and DWL encourages fans and supporters to follow the action in-person on November 26th at Kano Pillars Stadium, or via livestream on out Dambe Warriors app available on the MTN network.”
