This international league, which has been growing at a fast rate, has already completed its 6th season with more and more international clubs joining the project each year. The league runs from September till July and is formed by 8 seasonal tournaments, organized in different cities in Slovakia and Czech Republic.
It is a great chance for absolute beginners and less experienced amateur fighters to gain skills directly in the muaythai ring. This is especially true because of the matchmaking system used in this league which aims to match up fighters considering their weight, age, but most importantly their experience.
As by IFMA Rules and Regulations, boxers wear full protection (shin and elbow protectors, vest and helmet) and bouts take 3 x 2 min.
The following weight divisions are available:
MALE: -45kg -48kg -51kg -54kg -57kg -60kg -63,5kg -67kg -71kg -76kg -81kg -86kg -91kg +91kg
FEMALE: -55kg -60kg -63,5kg +63,5kg
The league has a clear point scoring system. All fighters are given points according to the result in each of their fight; these points accumulate throughout the league, and give a closing ranking where the two best fighters of each weight division compete in a final bout for the Euroliga Amateur Champion belt.
The Euroliga Muaythai Title is becoming more and more prestigious since more than 300 athletes, from 7 different countries, participated in the last season.
