Nigeria Combat Games Set For November 25

Nigeria is set to host its inaugural Combat Games, which will take place this year from November 25 to December 1, as announced by Musa Oshodi, Vice Chairman of the organising committee and Judo  Federation president.

This event aims to bring various combat sports under one umbrella, enhancing the visibility and competitiveness of Nigerian athletes globally.

Oshodi emphasised collaboration among different martial arts disciplines, inspired by the structure of the World Combat Games held in Saudi Arabia in 2023.

The event will showcase a diverse lineup of sports, including arm wrestling, boxing, fencing, judo, karate, kickboxing, mixed martial arts, strongman competition, taekwondo, and wrestling, with the venue yet unknown.

Scheduled activities will begin with participant arrivals and a federation meeting on November 25, followed by competitions from November 26 to November 30, and conclude with participant departures on December 1.

An organising committee led by General Kenneth Minimah (retd.) has been set up to ensure the smooth execution of the games. This committee, chaired by various combat sports leaders and professionals, is dedicated to meticulously planning all aspects of the event, from athlete accommodation to security, aiming to deliver a world-class experience for participants and spectators alike.

The Nigeria Combat Games 2024 represent not only a sporting competition but also a celebration of martial arts diversity and excellence, aimed at solidifying Nigeria’s presence in the global arena of combat sports.
