ONE Championship and the United Nations are looking to the future as the international body turns 75. 

The Home Of Martial Arts announced on Wednesday, July 8, that it will partner with the UN in the hopes of getting more people heard in the future.

To make that happen, ONE superstars will ask their worldwide fans to take a survey to get a clearer picture of the issues that people have in Asia.

Among those stars are ONE Championship Vice President Miesha Tate, legendary Brazilian Vitor Belfort, ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, Japanese-Korean superstar Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama, Indian wrestling sensation Ritu Phogat, Thai star Rika Ishige, Vietnamese-American superstar Bi Nguyen, and Indonesian standout Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol.

Furthermore, ONE will host a special webinar called TOGETHER AS ONE #UN75 on Tuesday, July 14. It will tackle the different responsibilities of the sports industry as they unify communities moving forward.

“I’m thrilled to be participating in this webinar with the UN, a global organization that drives international change and brings communities together,” said Hua Fung Teh, Group President of ONE Championship.

“ONE Championship, like the UN, is a values-based organization, and our mission is to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. We believe in the unifying power of sports, especially in these difficult times, and collaboration with entities like the UN represents our continued commitment to effecting positive change in the community via our global platform.”

Joining Hua Fung are UN under-secretary general Fabrizio Hochschild, Grab Group Vice President of Marketing Cheryl Goh, and Dr. Daiana Beitler, the Regional Business Lead, Philanthropies at Microsoft Asia.

“Working with a dynamic organization like ONE Championship, we hope that together, we can make a meaningful impact through the UN75 initiative.”
