The Professional Fighters League (PFL) has partnered with CollectibleXchange (CX) to offer mixed martial arts fans the chance to buy autographed and match-worn collectibles. A wide-range of items will be available for purchase, launching with gear and items from the three win-or-go-home playoff events in August 2021 airing live and in primetime across ESPN networks and streaming platforms.
This partnership will strengthen the connection between the more than 550 million MMA fans around the world with the league and its elite fighters. CX chief executive officer Brandon Steiner said, “I’m pumped!”
“MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world and partnering with PFL is a natural fit,” CX chief executive officer Brandon Steiner said. “We’re excited to give PFL’s passionate fan base access to game-used gear, autographs, posters and one-of-a-kind memorabilia.”
“PFL fans are about to get an unprecedented direct connection to their favorite fighters,” Steiner continued. “I’m excited to be working with PFL and delivering for their fans.”
The collectibles which will be available for purchase range from autographed fighter shorts, gloves and walkout tops to signed posters, photos and pieces of the PFL SmartCage canvas and other unique assets. These items will be available on both www.pflmma.com and www.Collectiblexchange.com.
“As PFL is set to kick off three Playoff events this month live in primetime on ESPN, we’re excited to partner with an industry-leader like CollectibleXchange to offer fans the chance to get their hands on unique memorabilia from their favorite fighters,” PFL CEO Peter Murray said. “We have 12 win-or-go-home fights featuring elite competitors and now fans will have the ability to own a piece of their journey to the $6 million PFL World Championship, the biggest night in MMA.”
The three single-elimination PFL playoff events will be held on August 13, 2021, on August 19, 2021 and on August 27, 2021 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, United States. The final four fighters from each of six weight-classes have single-elimination fights to earn a spot in the PFL World Championship featuring six title fights in six weight classes for $6 million all in 1 night, making it the biggest night of the year in MMA.
