ONE Championship™ (ONE), the largest global sports media property in Asian history, recently announced its partnership with Global Citizen, a leading platform in humanity programs around the world. The announcement was held during the ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES Official Kick-Off Press Conference last Monday, 22nd of January at the Manila Grand Ballroom of the City of Dreams. 

Global Citizen, which is headquartered in New York with offices in Canada, Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom, was founded in 2012 with the goal of building the largest platform where people can learn about issues, take action on what matters most, and join a global movement working to end extreme poverty by 2030. 

Wei Soo, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Global Citizen.

Wei Soo, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Global Citizen, stated: “We are thrilled to be joining forces with ONE Championship to bring Global Citizen to Asia. ONE Championship reaches millions of young people around the region and together we will engage them on issues that impact the entire world."

Soo reveals, "Since we launched Global Citizen in 2012, over 13 million actions have been taken, and we are excited to drive more actions and increase our impact for the world’s most marginalized people through this partnership.”

Since then, millions of Global Citizens around the world have taken over ten million actions, which includes millions of emails, tweets, petition signatures, and phone calls targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. To date, the actions by Global Citizen’s global community, along with its high-level advocacy efforts and various partners, have resulted in 130 commitments and policy announcements from leaders, including financial aid valued at over US $35-billion, that is set to affect the lives of over 1.3 billion people.

Main event competitors Geje Eustaquio of the Philippines and Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan faced-off for media in attendance. 

This partnership kicks-off the year 2018 with a much-awaited fight for the ONE Interim Flyweight World Championship in the headline bout of ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES, which takes place Friday night, the 26th of January at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila.
