KUALA LUMPUR: ONE Championship announced their 2017 calendar today but are expecting to make additions to the list as they look to enter new territory in the coming year.

Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Manila, and Yangon remain staples in the lineup while the Cotai Arena in Macau and the Impact Arena in Bangkok also return for a second year in a row.

Its chief executive officer Victor Cui said he is optimistic the promotion will continue to grow.

"2016 has been a phenomenal year for ONE Championship. It was absolutely historic for the promotion and 2017 promises to be even better," said Victor.

“ONE Championship is coming out in full force to hold electric live events all over mainland China with plans to break into new and exciting markets in Vietnam, South Korea and Japan."

The dates for stops in Japan, South Korea and Japan will be announced later.

ONE Championship will again hold two events in Malaysia next year on Feb 10 and Aug 18, both at Stadium Negara.

Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil, where ONE have held their events in recent seasons, is currently undergoing renovation in preparation of hosting the Sea Games next year.
