The PFL has announced the first half of its 2024 season, and it is moving away from the multi-night residencies seen in past season.

While previous years saw the league run multiple shows in cities like Las Vegas and Atlanta, among others, the first three regular season events of 2024 will be spread out across the U.S., with stops in San Antonio, Texas, plus Las Vegas, Nevada, and Chicago, Illinois.

The 2024 PFL Global season will kick off on April 4, 2024 at the Boeing Center in San Antonio, TX with heavyweights and the new women’s flyweight division in action. Among those taking part, Bellator MMA women’s flyweight champ Liz Carmouche, PFL Europe standout Dakota Ditcheva, and on the heavyweight side, PFL star Ante Delija.

April 12, 2023 will see the league in Las Vegas at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, coincidentally one day before UFC 300. Lightweights and light heavyweights will be in action including PFL 205lb champ Impa Kasanganay, ex Bellator MMA champ Phil Davis, and former Bellator lightweight champion Patricky Pitbull.

The final event of the first half of the PFL 2024 regular season comes on April 19, 2024 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, one of Bellator’s frequent stops over the years. Ex-Bellator MMA welterweight champ Andrey Koreshkov will join the tournament there.

“The toughest test in MMA, The PFL Regular Season, just got tougher with the addition of stars from Bellator,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray in a press release announcing the new dates. “The PFL is excited to kick off the 2024 Regular Season in front of our great fans in San Antonio, Las Vegas and Chicago. This promises to be the biggest Regular Season in history, with the PFL heading to ten top markets around the country and distribution to 160 countries around the world.”

The Professional Fighters League will be in action this coming weekend with their PFL Champs vs. Bellator Champs card going down on Feb. 24 in Saudi Arabia.
