GAMMA Indonesia receives National Olympic Recognition. NOC INDONESIA

On 8 March, as GAMMA prepares for the 2023 African Games, GAMMA Indonesia (PERTACAMI) was officially recognised by the Indonesian Olympic Committee (NOC Indonesia) as the national governing body for amateur mixed martial arts.

The recognition came during a Members Meeting and Extraordinary Congress held at the Fairmont Hotel in Jakarta, as the PB PERTACAMI Executive Board was accepted as a new member by NOC Indonesia, among four decisions made by the committee. 

PERTACAMI Secretary General Peter Taslim said that MMA athletes will now be able to compete in multi-sport games such as those involving the NOC: "As representatives of the sport of amateur MMA, we are very happy and proud because we are the only MMA organisation recognised by the Indonesian NOC." 

We have been active in sending MMA athletes to international, Asian and world events and we always manage to bring home international medals, including gold and silver at the 2023 GAMMA World Championships in Thailand, through athletes Viona Amalia and Toni Hutapea, respectively." 

Indonesia will host the 2024 GAMMA World Championships in Jakarta in December.
