Zebra Athletics, one of the  leading outfitter of martial arts and MMA training facilities, announces  a new sponsorship and equipment agreement with Invicta FC, an all-women’s mixed martial arts organization.

“Invicta FC is a perfect fit for our partner program at Zebra Athletics,” stated Zebra President, Kyle Fisher. “Zebra has always, and will always, be committed to growing women’s combat sports, so being able to partner with one of MMA’s leading organizations with the deepest roster of women on the planet allows us to double down on that commitment. Shannon Knapp is a pioneer in the sport and someone for whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration, so it’s truly an honor to now consider her and her organization a part of the Zebra family.”

The multi-year agreement between the two organizations formalizes Zebra Athletics as The Official Equipment Partner of Invicta FC. As such, Zebra has created a new, custom 28-foot octagonal cage for Invicta, replacing their hexagonal cages. Designed for easy setup and tear down, the new cage features Zebra’s premium foam core flooring for fighter comfort and protection, as well as a new integrated catwalk that allows for greater flexibility with lighting and production, to continue to enhance the in-arena experience and broadcast production value. Additionally, Zebra will be outfitting the locker room warm-up areas at every Invicta event with 1.5-inch Zebra Mats, striking bags and other training gear.

“When evaluating partners, it’s important that their culture and values align with Invicta’s, and Zebra Athletics matches them to a ‘T’,” explained Invicta FC President, Shannon Knapp. “We’ve worked with the Zebra team on a number of projects over the years and have always appreciated not only the quality of their products but their support for and commitment to growing women’s MMA. I’m excited to expand our partnership with Zebra further and for our athletes to begin competing on the best equipment in the industry.”

Zebra cages and equipment debuted for the organization at Invicta FC 36 in Kansas City, Kansas on Friday, August 9.
