Taking ultra-modern times into a whole new level is Robot Combat League, a one-of-a-kind game of wits and brute force. By combining tremendous human will and the super strength of machines, this is an ultimate showcase of first-class action. With 12 equally deserving teams, each composed of a “robo-jockey”- the fighter, and a “robo-tech” – the robotics engineer.

Wearing exo-suits allows the human controllers dictate the machine’s movements, these fighters crash, collide and basically take to destroy each other to provide exhilarating action to viewers. The participants come from extremely diverse backgrounds – witness a race car driver, a National Guard pilot, even an Olympian (among others) take the stage.
