Iowa Athletic Commissioner



Changes to athletic rules:  The Athletics Commissioner has adopted changes to the rules concerning athletic events and boxing grants.  Among the changes is the creation of event license fees. 


The event license fee will be required for events held on or after May 1, 2014.  May 1, 2014 through July 1, 2014, please include a check for $450.00 payable to the Iowa Athletic Commission the week prior to your event when you turn in the weigh-in form, insurance and ambulance service letter. 


After July 1, 2014, your event will not be reserved until one half of the event license fee of $225.00, which can be no later than 60 days prior to your event.  The fee, once accepted, reserves the date and is nonrefundable.  The remaining $225.00 will be due the week of the event as outlined above.  To view the adopted rules, click here.



In his role as the Athletic Commissioner, the Iowa Labor Commissioner performs the following functions: 


 A promoter must obtain an event license for an MMA event, whether amateur or professional; for a professional wrestling event; for a  professional kickboxing event; and, for a professional boxing event.  A promoter must submit an event license application at least 7 days before the event.  A promoter must file a $5,000 bond to guarantee the payment of all taxes.


A promoter must complete and file a receipts report form and pay all applicable taxes within 20 days after the date of the event. 


Each professional boxer must be registered.  Iowa participates in the Association of Boxing Commissioner’s national boxer registration system.  Call 515-281-5680 for more information.
