Intellectual Fight Club VII - Urban Amateur Chessboxing
Fri, April 7, 2017, 8:00 PM – 11:30 PM CEST
Intellectual Fight Club is back with the first event of 2017!
Join us on Friday, 7th April for the 7th time, as we open the gates and present ordinary people giving their all in the most demanding competition on our planet: a chessboxing fight! This is the first Intellectual Fight Club event out of 3 this year.
Once again, 3 fights are scheduled. The fights are hard, the chess games are wild and, as always, the venue will be on fire! The bar will be open during and after the event.
You never know what to expect in any given chessboxing match, and these fights will be no exception! Doors open at 20:00.
Make sure to get your tickets here and save money! Box Office Bird tickets (Abendkasse) are considerably more expensive (25€) and there is always a chance we may sell out beforehand.
Make sure to join our FACEBOOK PAGE or follow us on Twitter. We will be posting updates about the event throughout the next weeks. Listen to our podcast with meinsportradio to hear background stories about the event and its fighters!
Chessboxing is a rare blend of contrasting skills, where the physical strength of boxing meets the mental concentration of chess. The athlete takes the balance of body and mind to a new extreme. In the ring, the fighter is fuelled by testosterone, adrenaline and skill, three minutes later he/she must change battlegrounds to focus and outwit his/her opponent on the chessboard.
Intellectual Fight Club is a series of urban amateur chessboxing events which began in May of 2015. We like to think of Intellectual Fight Club as the little brother of our professional world championship series Intellectual Fight Nights, and because of this, these chessboxing events are much smaller and rougher!
We look forward to seeing you at IFC VII!
A big thanks to all of our amazing supporters:
