The inaugural PFL Europe season schedule has been rubber-stamped and officially confirmed, with a four-date calendar set for 2023.
The European arm of the PFL, which will operate independently of their main US-based regular season and playoffs, will see the PFL SmartCage travel to England, Germany, and France before finishing off at the iconic 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland for the season finale.
All four events, one per quarter, will be broadcast live during European primetime hours via the promotion’s broadcast partner and founding partner of PFL Europe, DAZN.
PFL Europe will consist of 32 of the continent’s top fighters competing across four weight classes, with the first two events in Newcastle and Berlin forming the regular season, followed by a playoff event in Paris and the season finals in Dublin.
Each PFL Europe season winner will claim $100,000 and a chance to earn a spot in the PFL’s main $1 million global season.
“PFL Europe’s inaugural season schedule is set, and MMA fans in 2023 will experience Europe’s best MMA fighters competing in the PFL’s true sport format live on DAZN,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray.
“PFL Europe Regular Season events will be staged in Newcastle, UK in March, and Berlin, Germany in July. Semi-finalists will then compete in a single elimination Playoff event in Paris, France, in September with the winners advancing to the PFL Europe Championship in Dublin, Ireland in December.”
