ProvingGrounds Invitational Sponsorship OPPORTUNITIES

What is Proving Grounds?

Proving Grounds Invitational is the premiere grappling event in Utah and the Mountain West. PGI is a Submission Only NoGi Grappling event with a unique rule set that ensures a clear winner for each match. We attract some of the top athletes in the area and even the whole country. Athletes range from Jiu Jitsu athletes, MMA fighters and even wrestlers.

Our mission is to provide an event that showcases the atheletes skill and gets them paid. As well as provide an entertaining show for our spectators. As most events only give out medals we stand out with always offering a generous purse for winners. This is our 5th event and we are on track for it to be our biggest so far. In the past all events have been on the north end of the valley in Davis county.

Our 5th event is being held at Church and State in Downtown Salt Lake City. This venue is a Historic Church that has been converted to an event space. It still has the old church look with stained glass, arched ceilings and a huge balcony that is overlooks the mat. We have a plan for showing video of this entire event the week after with our new streaming system on YouTube and Facebook.

Where does sponsorship money go? Directly to athletes. In general Proving Grounds is a Labor of Love event because we love the sport.
