2020 US SUMO OPEN

Spring, 2020

Walter Pyramid @ Cal State Long Beach

Thank you to all fans for being a part of the US Sumo Open, since 2001. We’ve set milestones for two decades, and the 20th annual US Sumo Open promises to be the strongest competition so far!
Get ready for 80+ athletes from around the world, flying into Southern California.

US SUMO OPEN BACKGROUND

As the largest and longest-running, annual sumo competition worldwide, outside of Japan, the US Sumo Open has been the first to bring Pro Sumo Grand Champions as special guests, the first to pioneer women’s matches in American tournaments, the first to feature multiple World Sumo Champions in a single event, and the first to include former top-ranked Pro Sumo wrestlers in competition!

Since 2001, the annual US Sumo Open has been a hallmark event, setting milestones in international sumo’s growth, including multiple national TV broadcasts on Universal Sports Network. We’re proud to be pioneers in developing this ancient martial art in the United States.

The competition level is also spectacular, with over 400 international athletes who have wrestled. Most of these competitors have been National or World Sumo Champions — from nearly 30 different countries. This is the only sumo event in North America where you can catch this caliber of international sumo, every year.
