Yesterday PANCRASE decided to postpone “Owltech presents PANCRASE 315” initially scheduled on 31st May to 23rdAugust and provide a financial support to fighters for main cards.
PANCRASE CEO Sakai-san said the following in official home page.
“With no sign of a decrease in the number of people infected with the new coronavirus, PANCRASE has decided to postpone the event for the third consecutive month.
At a time when many shops were closed due to the declaration of a state of emergency and the possibility of a medical collapse was evident in the city center, we decided that it was not the right thing to hold the event itself.
With the next event on 5th July and the possibility of adding new dates, we want to make sure that the event is safe and secure for fighters and fans alike.
Due to the postponement of the event on 31st May, we have decided to pay 30,000 yen Corona allowance to the main card fighters.
We will do our best to protect those who want to participate in PANCRASE, even if only a little.”
