Beginning with the second half of the 2022 Professional Fighters League Regular Season, PFL begins its partnership with TicketSmarter as their official ticket partner.
With a roster boasting MMA talents such as Kayla Harrison, and Ray Cooper III, Professional Fighters League (PFL) is one of the best-known MMA organizations in the world today, with 25% percent of its fighters independently ranked in the top-25 of the world. PFL is watched live in 160 countries by 600 million MMA fans, via ESPN, ESPN+, and streaming. PFL’s investors include Ares Capital, Luxor Capital, Elysian Park Ventures, Swan Ventures, Knighthead, Legends, and several NBA, MLB, and NHL team owners.
As part of the agreement with PFL, TicketSmarter will gain exclusive marketing and sponsorship rights for PFL and intends to provide PFL fans with a safe and trusted ticketing marketplace.

TicketSmarter is equally pleased with the partnership. “We are proud to enter a partnership with the Professional Fighters League and to offer fans an innovative, easy-to-use, secure platform to purchase and sell their tickets,” said TicketSmarter CEO Jeff Goodman. “The partnership with the PFL is a progression of our efforts to create beneficial relationships and we look forward to working together over the next several years.”

Professional Fighters League
As mentioned earlier, A unique aspect of PFL is that it is the first and only MMA league with a season format. Fighters from around the world compete in a regular season, and then four competitors in each division (Featherweight, Heavyweight 265, Light Heavyweight 205, Lightweight 155, Welterweight 170, and Women’s Lightweight 155) who earn the most points in the regular season advance to the win-or-go-home playoffs. After that is the PFL World Championship, where each winner goes home with a prize of one million dollars and a championship belt.
The next PFL events will take place at Overtime Elite Arena at Atlantic Station on June 17, June 24 and July 1 live on ESPN networks and streaming platforms worldwide, with partners including Channel 4, DirecTV, RMC Sport, Eurosport, Sky Sports, and more.
