Sumo Showdown in Pittsburgh, January 21.

Suno Showdown, a sumo competition featuring Japanese wrestlers and local celebrities, will take place in Pittsburgh on January 21.
The Young Presidents Organization Pittsburgh Chapter will host this unforgettable charity event benefiting the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh. Sumo is one of the most popular sports in Japan, and we’re ecstatic to be bringing it to Pittsburgh to benefit our region’s youth. Sumo matches were originally held to raise money to construct shrines, temples or to replace bridges, but this January a Sumo match will be held to raise money for the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh in conjunction with our celebrity partners’ charities. Professional Sumo wrestler will be flown in to compete along side local CEOs and celebrities.
The event takes place on January 21 at 7:00 pm at Stage AE on the North Shore (map). Tickets are currently available online and range from $35 to $100 for adults.
