Scheduled for the 19th of January 2024 in Melbourne’s Festival Hall and on the 21st of January 2024 in Sydney’s Aware Super Theatre, this family-friendly event promises to present sumo wrestling in an authentic and engaging manner. Monique Annetts, the official spokesperson for Zing Entertainment, emphasises the wide appeal of the event. “We’re excited to offer a family-friendly environment that fuses sports, culture, and entertainment,” Annetts enthused. “It’s an opportunity to experience the rich history and athleticism of sumo wrestling.”

As part of the exclusive VIP package, some fortunate ticket holders will be invited on stage for an interactive sumo wrestling experience. The opportunity to meet the sumo champions, including Sumi, in an exclusive meet-and-greet session, is guaranteed to make the VIP experience truly unforgettable.

The event will also feature an immersive Tyko Japanese drumming pre-show. The goal is to educate and entertain, with an announcer introducing the sport’s cultural significance, followed by sumo matches that showcase the athletes’ skill and strategy. “Our aim is to create a welcoming environment where families can learn, appreciate different cultures, and have a great time,” adds Annetts.
