COMBAT SPORTS ACT 2013 - SECT 5

Professional combat sport contests

5 Professional combat sport contests

(1) In this Act:

"professional combat sport contest" means a combat sport contest:
(a) where at least one of the combatants is competing for a monetary prize or other valuable reward, or
(b) where at least one of the combatants is registered in a registration class applicable to professional combat sport contests for the style of combat sport concerned, or
(c) where at least one of the combatants has been previously registered in a registration class applicable to professional combat sport contests for the style of combat sport concerned and has not been subsequently registered as an amateur in that style of combat sport, or
(d) where at least one of the combatants has previously competed for a monetary prize or other valuable reward in a combat sport contest for the style of combat sport concerned.
(2) Despite subsection (1), a combat sport contest is not a professional combat sport contest merely because:
(a) a combatant has been previously registered to engage in professional combat sport contests for the style of combat sport concerned, if that registration of the combatant was cancelled under section 16 (2), or
(b) a combatant has previously been a combatant in a professional combat sport contest for the style of combat sport concerned at a time when the combat sport was not regulated by this Act or any preceding Act that regulated combat sports.
