Six boxing matches were held at Theinbyu traditional boxing stadium on September 20, drawing a higher number of spectators and a new generation of athletes. The matches were sponsored by the Myanmar Traditional Boxing Federation and organised by Myanmar Media Group. Free tickets are being offered to the three and four round boxing bouts and old clubs have been revitalised, which are helping to draw in larger crowds.
New clubs have also been formed recently, such as Pyitdaindong Club – which like other new clubs, received a supplementary annual stipend from Myanmar Media Group.
