There was a time when ONE Championship faced rejections and endured criticism from naysayers and doubters.
That seems like ages ago.
Now, The Home Of Martial Arts ranks among the top sports media properties in the world in 2019 when it comes to online viewership in cross-platforms according to Tubular Labs, the world’s leading global data and analytics provider for social videos.
The data is garnered from different online platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram, among others.
ONE sits in fourth place with 5.6 billion views last year, which made them the top martial arts property on the list ahead of the fifth-ranked UFC with 3.8 billion views. It is also the only Asian property to make the top-five.
ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong reflected on ONE’s humble beginnings, and he could not be happier with how things turned out.
“When I started ONE Championship eight-and-a-half years ago, I could never have imagined this extraordinary adventure in a million years. In the early days, all of the haters, doubters, and naysayers told me that I was crazy, stupid, or foolish,” Sityodtong said on his personal blog.
“My team and I faced thousands of rejections after rejections, and failures after failures in the first three years. No one would give us a break. Today, ONE Championship is Asia’s largest global sports media property with a broadcast to over one-hundred fifty-plus countries around the world,” he continued.
“It has broken all records as the world’s fastest-growing global sports media property in history – full stop.”
Make no mistake about it, this achievement only pushes the driven CEO to inspire even more people for years to come.
The end goal for Sityodtong has always been about impacting lives, and he promises that this is just the beginning of something even more amazing.
“Our mission is to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. I pour my everything into every day because I want to make a positive impact on billions of lives, and change the world for the better,” Sityodtong said.
“I want to inspire the world to dream more, do more, and be more in life. Mark my words. My team and I are just getting started. Chase your greatness. Live your dreams. We are ONE!”
