Notice regarding New Coronavirus (COVID-2019) and NJPW events

IMPORTANT: Information regarding New Japan Pro-Wrestling events in the wake of Coronavirus concerns.

The New Coronavirus (COVID-2019) has been a persistent worldwide news topic for some weeks, and understandably has many concerned. New Japan Pro-Wrestling holds the health, safety and comfort of fans, wrestlers and staff at live events as a top priority, and as such, after careful consideration, we have arrived at a policy for live events in the immediate future. 

All currently scheduled live events will proceed as planned. In light of this decision, we invite attendees to take the following precautions at events:

Be mindful of your physical condition before an event. If you have a fever, cough or cold symptoms or feel otherwise unwell, please stay home. 

Additional disinfectant alcohol sprays will be available for attendees to use at every venue. We invite every attendee to disinfect their hands on entering each venue. 

NJPW encourages attendees to wear surgical masks at live events where at all possible. Staff members may also be wearing masks. We also encourage fans to thoroughly wash their hands and gargle. 

Please leave the venue if you become unwell during an event. Be aware that staff may advise attendees to leave if they seem unwell. 

Meet and greets/autograph signings at events will be canceled until further notice. We appreciate your understanding.  

Refunds will be made available for tickets purchased to March events. While events will all proceed as planned, we appreciate fans’ concern, and would like to ask ticket holders not to attend if they feel at all unwell. 

With the best interest of public safety at heart, additions, including attendee health checks, may be made to the above at a later date. Keep checking for more details.

We appreciate your continued support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
