Combat sports forms and fees

All combat sports contests must adhere to the Combat Sports Act 1987 and the Combat Sport Regulations 2004.

The Combat Sports Commission is responsible for the registration of contestants and industry participants including trainers/seconds, managers, promoters, officials and matchmakers.

Current fees for contestant and industry participant registration with the CSC
Industry participant Fee
Promoter $330
Matchmaker $165
Manager $165
Trainer $82.50
Referee $100
Judge, Timekeeper $80

Where an individual is registering in more than one capacity they will pay the registration fee for most expensive capacity and $80 for each additional capacity.  So an individual registering as a promoter, manager and trainer would pay $490, $330 to register as a promoter plus $80 to register as a manager and $80 to register as a trainer.

The registration period for all contestants and industry participants is three years from the date of registration.  There are a series of application forms available to download for each category.
