What’s Happening:

Don’t miss the 19th annual US Sumo Open! This is the largest,
longest-running sumo tournament in the world (outside of Japan). You can
cheer on 50+ international Sumo Champions from a dozen countries.

Collectively, these athletes have 7+ World Sumo Champion titles, and
decades of Pro Sumo experience. This is top-notch, dynamic action!

An opportunity like this comes just once a year in the Western Hemisphere
with competitors expected from USA, Canada, Japan, Norway, Mongolia,
India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Tajikistan, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, Poland,
Germany, and more!

Enjoy Japanese taiko drumming between matches, and savor fresh Japanese
food, Japanese beer and sake, while you yell with excitement.

Be sure to catch all the elite action during the MAIN EVENT (1 pm – 4 pm).
The OPENWEIGHT matches are amazing — at times, a 180 pounder has defeated a
500-pound opponent . . .

Die-hard fans with 6 hours free can come early, to catch preliminary
matches from 10 am.

We’re back at the Pyramid for the 6th year in a row, a venue with the
largest big screen monitor (for replays) of any campus in the country! Get
ready for a thrilling competition. Who will be the 2019 Hero?
