For immediate release: August 19 2022
Australia’s No.1 MMA Promotion, Eternal MMA are pleased to announce the partnership with Principal Partner, Australian Health Professionals (AHP) to spearhead raising the bar for medical attention across the nation’s most popular combat sport.
The exclusive partnership will see AHP feature as Eternal’s first-ever Official Fight Kit Partner with branding across Eternal’s walk-out-uniforms worn by fighters, plus additional branding across digital and social assets and presenting rights via Eternal’s broadcast partnerships with UFC Fight Pass and ESPN. Additionally, AHP will provide unique career opportunities for Health Professionals Australia-wide through their commitment to service the partnership with medical teams at all Eternal MMA shows.
Ben Vickers, Eternal MMA Director: “As a coach, I am in the gym with the fighters day in and day out. This sport is a passion of mine and to now be in a position where we can service the fighters at the highest of medical standards gives me confidence we’re impacting the sport in the right way. With AHP as a partner we believe together we can make MMA even safer and raise the standard and quality of care provided to our athletes”.
AHP is a progressive, forward thinking, privately-owned company, dedicated to advancing and improving the quality of career paths for healthcare professionals Australia-wide.
Cam O’Neill, Eternal MMA Director: “Fighter health & safety is our priority. It’s often overlooked by other combat sports promoters and seen as an unfeasible expense. We are taking the necessary steps to provide medical care and a safe environment for the fighters and for all of those in attendance. AHP is a leader in their field and this partnership sets standards for Eternal MMA that have never been seen before in the sport in Australia & New Zealand”.
Since the company’s inception in 2014, AHP has pioneered the medical and healthcare recruitment industry, with over six specialized divisions. This Eternal partnership will witness AHP take their ambition nationally and provide career opportunities for doctors and paramedics in unique sectors including combat sports. These opportunities will offer diversity to these healthcare roles, as well as assist in the development of unique skill sets. AHP is passionate about growing the careers of paramedics and doctors through unique opportunities and contributing to the movement that is raising the health and safety of participants and spectators in sporting groups.
Simon Thomas, Australian Health Professionals CEO: “Delivering superior healthcare to the Australian community is both a professional and personal goal. Partnering with Eternal, one of Australia’s most reputable combat sport organizations, has not only aligned with our core values, but given AHP the opportunity to make actual change”.
Australian Health Professionals’ latest venture, AHP Physio, places skilled physiotherapists with a background in sports and sports medicine in leading venues across Australia. Aligned with Goodlife Gyms, AHP physiotherapists provide an elite level of pre-emptive and post-injury care to elite athletes and community members alike.
Currently in a growth phase, AHP is looking to align with other brands and businesses that support the company’s core values of providing healthcare professionals with the best career opportunities and learning experiences across Australia.
The Eternal MMA and AHP partnership will come into effect from August 20, 2021 at Eternal 68 taking place at HBF Stadium, Perth.
