Tournament Application Process
Who can apply for a tournament?
Only a holder of a valid BSA Promoter’s license is eligible to apply for the staging of a tournament.
How and when should I apply for a tournament?
Applications for the staging of tournaments must be made to BSA at least 30 days before the date of the tournament using a Tournament Application Form which can be found on the BSA website, www.boxingsa.co.za
Tournament applications must be sent to Provincial Managers who will do quality assurance on the application and once satisfied that the application meets the minimum requirements will submit to the national office.
What do I need to submit when applying for a tournament?
Applications by Promoters for the sanctioning of a tournament must be submitted to the Provincial Manager of the province where the tournament will take place at least 30 days prior to the date of the tournament and must contain the following compulsory minimum information and requirements.

When should the purse money for the tournament be paid?
Purse money must be paid in full no later than 14 days before the date of the tournament.
What happens if I am unable to pay the purse money?
A Promoter who, for whatever reason/s, is unable to pay the purse money by the due date, may submit in writing to Boxing SA, no later than 14 days before the tournament, a request for a postponement*.
Failure to pay purse money by the due date will result in Boxing SA cancelling the tournament and all deposits paid in respect of minimum purse monies will be paid to Boxers.
