For the first time in history the royal family of Thailand has gracefully donated four trophies for this event.  His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Her Majesty Queen Sirikij, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn and Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn have each respectively donated a trophy. This demonstrates the great importance the royal family has given to Muaythai. It also shows the appreciation from the Kingdom of Thailand towards all the athletes and coaches from over one hundred countries, numbering to nearly two thousand who are all making their way to beautiful Thailand. IFMA would like to thank the royal family of Thailand for giving us this honor to our athletes.
