We’re happy to announce IMMAF’s official transfer to Switzerland. An international operation carried out by Lugicons SA, a Lugano based Swiss Corporation, part of Icon Holding Group SA, through the works of its President Luigi Perillo and his Vice President Steve Dapper. This epic event coincided with two of IMMAF’s most sought after appointments, namely that of Chief Business Developer Officer for Prof. Dapper and Chief Financial Auditing Officer for Dr. Perillo. IMMAF is now closer to the majority of all other International Federations and at the epicenter of the Olympic Movement. The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) has completed the registration process to become a non-profit organization in Switzerland.
IMMAF President Kerrith Brown commented: “The move means that IMMAF’s official office is registered in a location closer to the majority of International Federations, with Switzerland known as the epicenter of the Olympic Movement.”
IMMAF is the only legitimate international governing body for the sport of MMA (mixed martial arts) focused on furthering its development, recognition, and regulation and enabling amateur competition through the organization of national MMA federations around the world. With a seven-year track record of organizing international amateur Championships and developing the sport globally, IMMAF’s membership today includes over 100 National Federations worldwide with National Olympic Committee recognition in around 40 countries.
The IMMAF was founded in Sweden in 2012 where it has been based until now.
Brown said: “The move reflects IMMAF’s ambitions for MMA to be recognized as a sport by the Olympic Movement.”
