2025 PRO LEI TAI AMATEUR LEI TAI ELIGIBILITY TO COMPETE
PRO LEI TAI Tournament competitions are open to Amateur athletes only, i.e. not athletes who have competed at a professional level.
The PRO LEI TAI considers an athlete to be on a professional level and thus not eligible for participation if he/she meets any one of the following criteria:
Holds a professional combat sports license issued by any sanctioning body.
Is under contract with a professional combat sport promotion.
Has received a purse for participating in a professional combat sports match.*
Has competed in a professional level combat sport bout regardless of non-payment or absence of contract.**
Each national federation will be held responsible for making sure only Amateurs are entered into PRO LEI TAI Tournaments. The PRO LEI TAI and the host Lei Tai Federation will review applications and make necessary background checks.
We ask that all national federation representatives take this eligibility criteria very seriously and implement the required action prior to a Tournament, as to avoid any potential issues or eligibility challenges during a PRO LEI TAI event.
