Glory Kickboxing Announces Return to Arena Shows with Two Events at GelreDome


Glory Kickboxing is set to return to the site of its biggest-ever
event for a pair of nearly full-capacity arena shows.

Glory’s GelreDome Return

This week, the Singapore-based kickboxing giant announced two
upcoming events at GelreDome in Arnhem, Netherlands. The two events
will allow 27,000 fans, which is near capacity, marking another
step in a return to normalcy for the promotion since the COVID-19
pandemic. Glory 79 will take place on Oct. 22, while Glory 80 will
happen on a date to be announced in early 2022. No matchups have
been announced yet for either card.

Glory’s last event at the GelreDome was the biggest in promotional
history. Glory: Collison 2, which took place on Dec. 21, 2019, and
headlined Rico
Verhoeven
vs. Badr Hari, set
records for both attendance and viewership. Scott Rudmann,
Executive Vice Chairman of Glory, professed his excitement to
return to the venue where the promotion saw its greatest
success.

“We are delighted to return to the place where we hosted our
biggest event. To now join forces with the GelreDome in welcoming
nearly 30,000 fans again is something we have been looking forward
to for a long time. Glory 79 promises absolute fireworks, with
fights that everyone in the world will want to watch. We can’t wait
to give the fans what they’ve been waiting for. As you can imagine,
the fight cards will be tremendous to match the size of the arena,”
Rudmann said.

Herald van de Bunt, CEO of the GelreDome, said, “GelreDome is
pleased that the originally planned event of March 2021, which
could not take place because of corona, is now scheduled for Oct.
23. We are convinced that we are able to present a fantastic event
to our fans!”

Glory returns from a brief hiatus on Sept. 4 with Glory 78, which
will take place at Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands and
will feature a live audience. The main event will see the return of
former K-1 heavyweight champ Hari, as he takes on Arkadiusz
Wrzosek
. The co-main event features Glory light heavyweight
champ Alex
Pereira
, defending his title in a rematch with Artem
Vahkitov.

Glory extends partnership with Jack’s Casino

Also announced today, Glory and Dutch casino chain Jack’s Casino
extended their partnership through 2023. The two companies have
been working together since 2019. “We are thrilled to expand our
partnership with Jack’s. This partnership reflects our mutual drive
to create world-class entertainment and deliver a better fan
experience as we welcome Glory fans back to our events,” said John
Martone, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Digital &
Partnerships at Glory.
