Sandee Junior Championships 2015 - GRAND FINALS

****** ENTRY IS NOW CLOSED ******

Welcome to the Sandee Junior Championships Grand Finals, the pinnacle of Junior Muay Thai competition in the UK, where the best Juniors from the North & South meet to see who wins the Exclusive Sandee UK Champion Belt.

The Grand Final is an invitation-only event.

The Grand Finals, just like the Regional heats, is focused on the experience each junior fighter takes away from the event to help their long term development, which we believe is just as important as the winning or losing. The principles of the Grand Finals are:

  • Safety
  • Good & fair competition
  • Honesty & integrity

DATE: March 28th 2015

WHERE: Fenton Sports Complex, Stoke-on-Trent - featuring a 1,200 tiered seating plan.

WHEN: Weigh-in times will commence @ 8.30am, but will be staggered by gender / age group. The event will finish @ 6.30pm. More details on this will be sent to each individual finalists & instructors 1 week before the event date.

PRICE: Regular price - £20 per finalist entrant / £10 per spectator. However, Sandee would like to help subsidise the cost, by also offering an exclusive family ticket (1 x Junior fighter entrant + 3 x spectator tickets), for a total cost of £30, which in effect means the fighter entrant fee is free of charge. We at Sandee, understand that with Junior grassroots Muay Thai, every little helps to reduce costs for both gyms & parents!

All entrants will receive a Finalists medal with the Winners receiving the exclusive Sandee Champions Belt.

****** ENTRY IS NOW CLOSED ******

With the officials trained & managed independently by the IBMTO, there will be a series of 3 events to find out who are the true best ranked Juniors across the UK, within their weight & age classification. Sandee’s investment means the very best venues have now been secured giving competitors and spectators alike the best possible experience in a safe & fun environment.

The Concept

The winners & runners up in each relevant category from both North & South regional events, have been invited to compete against each other in the Sandee GRAND FINAL, which will see the best of the North & South compete against each other, to identify who is the true No.1 Junior fighter in the UK within their respective weight & age category.
