After a two year absence, the Fight Night Combat end-of-year tournament is BACK!!!

The European Championships 2022 will be held at Katapult Berlin on December 3rd, and will feature the top combat jugglers from the last few years of competition.

New for this year, running alongside the open tournament, is a women's tournament. This is to showcase and help develop the top female talent in Fight Night Combat.

The event will start at 3pm for the seeding rounds, where each juggler plays one-on-one matches with every other juggler to decide the final knockout brackets.

At 8pm Katapult will open its doors to the public for the grand finals. Grab drinks from the bar and enjoy the spectacle... then stick around for the after party!

12 competitors have already confirmed their participation! Due to the unique circumstances of the last few years, jugglers have earned their invites in various ways:

  • Jochen Pfeiffer (Germany) - Winning EJC 2022
  • Bas Van de Kerkhof (Netherlands) - Winning NJF 2022
