People often ask me how ONE Championship has achieved so much in such little time. Of course, it has been a lot of hard work. However, without a doubt, it has also been a lot of good luck. I genuinely don’t believe that ONE Championship would be where it is today if I had started it in any other country in Asia. Singapore is a big reason why ONE Championship has become a global phenomenon.
I am full of gratitude and appreciation to Singapore for embracing ONE Championship over the years and for helping to build together what will be Asia’s first multibillion dollar global sports media property. Whether it is EDB’s active involvement, Temasek’s Heliconia investment, support from Ministers in the Singapore Government, Mediacorp’s significant commitment of broadcast hours, Singtel’s blockbuster partnership, SGX’s proactive help, or the incredible work of our Singaporean rockstars at Team ONE, ONE Championship and I have been truly blessed with the friendship, support, and love from everyone across Singapore.
Without the full support of Singapore behind us, ONE Championship would not have had any chance to become a unicorn. And the best part is that we are still only at the very beginning of our journey.
Made in Singapore. #gratitude
