The FRANKFURT OPEN & MASTERS is part of the WBA Circuit 2016. Every match of the OPEN and the MASTERS will count towards the German National Ranking. Additionally, every match of the MASTERS Elite will count towards the WBA Point Race 2016. The FRANKFURT OPEN, is a free entry tournament in a Single Elimination Format. The FRANKFURT MASTERS will be available in 2 divisions and features WBA’s computerized T-Swiss System (3 lives + Ultimate Fight).
