OKTAGON MMA’s European Expansion

OKTAGON MMA, Europe's premier MMA promotion, is gearing up for its most monumental event yet as it heads to Frankfurt's Deutsche Bank Park on October 12th for OKTAGON 62.

Since its inception in 2016, OKTAGON MMA has experienced exponential growth, consistently packing arenas in the Czech Republic and Slovakia before expanding successfully into Germany and the UK.

Scaling New Heights

Following the record-breaking sell-out event at Germany's largest indoor arena, the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, where they shattered the German MMA attendance record with 19,000 fans, OKTAGON MMA wasted no time in upscaling for its German audience. The selection of Deutsche Bank Park, home to Eintracht Frankfurt and boasting a seating capacity of 55,000, marks a historic moment in German sports history.

Pavol Neruda’s Vision

Co-owner of OKTAGON MMA, Pavol Neruda, expressed his excitement about the upcoming event: "There's an undeniable magic in Frankfurt that has captivated us since our first shows here. We consistently fill the Festhalle, but with Germany's vast potential, we knew we had to aim higher. Deutsche Bank Park emerged as the obvious choice, not only for its sheer size but also for its retractable roof, ensuring a seamless experience for fans."

Neruda continued, "This is a monumental step for us, and we're humbled by the ambition behind it. We're confident that the magnitude of OKTAGON 62 will draw in audiences from far and wide. Plans are underway to incorporate halftime shows featuring global music icons, making this event akin to an epic Colosseum spectacle."

Unprecedented Spectacle

OKTAGON 62 promises not only top-tier MMA action with the biggest stars from Germany and beyond but also a live extravaganza unlike anything seen before in MMA, including live music, stunning visuals, and a plethora of surprises.

Preceding OKTAGON 62, the promotion will host OKTAGON 58 at Prague's Eden Stadium on June 8th, featuring the highly anticipated 'Rematch of the Century' between Karlos Vémola and Attila Végh.

With its reputation for high-quality production and compelling matchups, OKTAGON MMA has firmly established itself as a powerhouse on the European MMA scene, recently earning a nomination for MMA Promotion of the Year.

As more details about this historic event unfold in the coming months, fans are encouraged to pre-register for early ticket access.
