Professional Mixed Martial Arts Event

Before Applying for a Permit

Before submitting an application for an event permit to the Division of Professional Regulation (DPR), take the following actions:

  • Obtain a Delaware business license from the Division of Revenue.
  • Provide the Designated Agent the proposed list of matches for review and approval.
  • Provide the Designated Agent with proof that you have:
    • hired two EMTs with an ambulance
    • hired two paramedics with life-saving equipment and life-saving medicines
    • hired one or more Delaware-licensed physicians to conduct pre- and post-fight physicals and to be on-site during and directly after the event
    • hired security personnel to maintain order and provide for safety during and after the event
    • purchased liability insurance per the requirements of the venue.
  • Obtain a Designated Agent’s approval for the event date. DPR will not grant the permit without the Designated Agent’s approval. As Delaware does not have a boxing commission, the Designated Agent will be a representative from another jurisdiction. To find out which Designated Agent to contact, call or email:
    Megan Miller
    (302) 744-4522

For more information, see Part C of the Rules and Regulations, including Section 20.0.

Information on How to Apply for a License in DELPROS

All applications are submitted our online system DELPROS. We no longer accept paper applications.

  • either “attach” or “upload” the required document(s) directly to your application. This means you will find the document(s) saved on your computer or device and upload it to your application.

    • Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state.
  • Forms requiring a supervisor signature, seal, or notary may have to be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document.

The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).
