Sumo Showdown: International Sumo League makes Waves in US


The International Sumo League, in an effort to popularize Sumo, the ancient sport in the United States and Canada, recently organized a series of groundbreaking events in New Jersey. What was the goal? Sumo must be able to capture the attention and loyalty of an American audience. 

The sold-out inaugural event, dubbed “Club Sumo,” unfolded on January 25, 2024, at the esteemed White Eagle Hall. Following this successful debut, anticipation is building for the upcoming event scheduled for February 8, 2024, at the same venue, leading up to the grand finale – the World Championship Sumo at the Prudential Center on February 18, 2024.

The success of Club Sumo was tangible. White Eagle Hall swelled with eager fans, some of whom were experiencing Sumo wrestling for their first time. As the audience became more familiar with this fascinating sport, what started out as an amusement for many turned into genuine cheers. Conversations were rife by the end of the evening about attending future events and following Sumo closely.

In a tournament format the first round consisted of six bouts.
