Pay a Low Rate for Your Sports Promoter Bond
Just as bond names vary by state, the cost of the bond varies as well. The bond amount required by the state directly affects how much a promoter will pay for a bond, as will the promoter’s personal application and financial credibility. In most cases, applicants with a credit score higher than 650 can expect to pay a premium that’s just 1-5% of the bond amount. This means that a standard $10,000 MMA promoter bond will only cost between $100 and $500 for one year of coverage. Find out what you’ll pay for your bond by getting a free, no-obligation quote!

Learn More About Mixed Martial Arts Promoter Bonds
Many states require that sports promoters file a sports promoter license surety bond before they can be licensed to promote sporting events in the state. Mixed martial arts bonds work like other surety bond types. Each MMA bond that’s issued functions as a legal contract that binds together three entities.
- The principal is the promoter that purchases the bond as a way to guarantee his/her compliance with whatever stipulations are found in the bond’s terms.
- The obligee is the government agency that requires the sports promoter to purchase a bond to guarantee a certain level of professional performance.
- The surety is the agency that issues the bond, thus providing a financial guarantee of the sports promoter’s ability to follow regulations.
If the promoter should fail to meet the expectations outlined in a mixed martial arts bond, then the obligee can make a claim on the bond to recover losses or collect a penalty. As such, the financial guarantee provided by MMA sports promoter bonds provides athletes with an additional sense of security when they decide to work with a sports promoter.
Some states also require additional surety bonds, such as a match permit bond that’s only valid for one specific event or a tax bond that guarantees proper payment of taxes.
