ENFUSION about to convert a sports hall into a studio, so that people can follow the event at home.

*** Enfusion press release *** ENFUSION about to convert a sports hall into a studio, so that people can follow the event at home.

Dear martial arts enthusiasts,

Enfusion intends to keep Dutch martial arts alive despite the Corona time. Organizing is almost impossible at this time, because promoters depend on ticket sales. This is of course hardly possible with current developments.

We as Enfusion want to make a safe attempt as long as we get everyone behind us with this rescue plan. We are going to completely convert a sports hall into a studio, so that people can follow the event at home. Of course Enfusion also lost many of its sponsors during the Corona outbreak and many TV contracts.
We hope, with this action, to breathe new life into the sport. Of course we would like to maintain the lead we have as the Netherlands in the kickboxing world.

With this promotion we also keep amateur athletes partly at work.

We have an eye on a room where we could start in September. It will take a lot of math and negotiation to get to the break-even point in these difficult times.
We hope everyone understands the importance of this rescue for sports. We have a plan of action in which we demonstrate that in this way the current corona rules are observed at all times. We hope and expect positive feedback so that we can continue with our plan.

We await the developments of the Corona and other sports such as football and plan 2 possible scenarios:

Plan A:
Friday September 4: ECE cage event
Saturday September 5: Enfusion ring event
Friday September 11: ECE cage event
Saturday September 12: Enfusion ring event
Friday September 18: ECE cage event
Saturday September 19: Enfusion ring event
Friday September 25: ECE cage event
Saturday September 26: Enfusion ring event
Friday October 2: ECE cage event
Saturday October 3: Enfusion ring event

Plan B:
Friday September 18: ECE cage event
Saturday September 19: Enfusion ring event
Friday September 25: ECE cage event
Saturday September 26: Enfusion ring event
Friday October 2: ECE cage event
Saturday October 3: Enfusion ring event
Friday October 9: ECE cage event
Saturday October 10: Enfusion ring event

Then we can evaluate and hopefully continue on the old foot for everyone and we have been able to keep many people active. Another alternative is to rent a location again somewhere in the month for a month and convert it into a studio again.

Of course, this plan can only take place if there is enough support. When we as Enfusion have the impression that there are enough people behind the plan and we can possibly get it cost-effective, we will implement the plan, with the permission of the right authorities. We have a professional production team, who will ensure that many of the parties can be seen in the living room via https://watch.enfusionlive.com/browse

Here you can already find the archive of all recorded games from the past 8 years. When the PPV income will exceed the costs, this money will be reinvested in a stronger line up.

Hopefully the events could take place under strict protocols that have now been elaborated and will be made public soon.

Ofcourse, everything can only take place with close cooperation with the martial arts authority, which is in contact with the government and RIVM and our ring doctors.

We ask the people who support this plan to share it. Depending on the popularity of this plan, we may or may not try to continue.

Team Enfusion
