From their website: “Over 60 sumo stars from 15 countries are…returning to the Pyramid for the 4th year in a row. The US Sumo Open is not to be missed.”  Last year “4-time World Sumo Champion Byamba reclaimed glory, with a 13-0 record, winning both heavyweight and openweight divisions, undefeated! He has won gold at 9 US Sumo Opens! American standout Roy Sims won silver in both divisions, beating 11 other opponents, and losing only to Byamba.” 

After-party access where you can meet the athletes and officials after the event- food and drink included.  (There is  a $20 pay-at-the-door additional fee for the exclusive, optional after-party.)
