A Promoter License Bond is a surety bond that every promoter of a combative sports event must furnish as part of the license application requirements. Some examples of combative sports are boxing, wrestling, and other sparring matches.

There are two kinds of surety bonds that New York State promoters must submit. These are the following:

  • Corporation Bond – ensuring the lawful performance of the promoter. This does not include wrestling promoters.
  • Guarantee Bond – guarantees the payment of the salaries of club employees, the printing of tickets, other materials used for advertising, sponsoring organizations, and all the necessary taxes

The New York State Athletic Commission will determine the surety bond amount that will be required of the promoter in pursuance of Section 19 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations 207.10 and Chapter 714 of the Laws of 1921.
