Division of
Professional Regulation

Combative Sports


The Division of Professional Regulation is responsible for regulating combative sports and combative sports entertainment events. The objective of regulation is to protect the health, safety and welfare of current and future participants as well as those who stage, judge and attend the events. To meet this objective, the Division:

  • promulgates rules and regulations
  • reviews applications and issues permits
  • assigns agents to attend events for the purpose of enforcing the law and regulations
  • investigates complaints.

The Secretary of State or designee has the authority to impose administrative penalties for violations.

The Division issues event permits for amateur and professional boxing, amateur and professional mixed martial arts, and combative sports entertainment. The Division’s statutory authority is in 28 Del. C. Chapter 1.

The Division must review and approve your application for an event. The Division can only review a complete application. A complete application includes your application and any documentation submitted through DELPROS and/or any documents submitted through the mail or email from third-parties.
