About Agency Wars

EXCITING NEWS!
We’re excited to announce our new charity partner, the Movember Foundation of Canada. We look forward to supporting men’s health through our fundraising efforts.

NOW IN ITS 7TH YEAR,

 Agency Wars, has become one of the most anticipated events of the Toronto Marketing and Advertising industry. The event sells out every year and in its seven years, Agency Wars has introduced over 3,000 people to the sport of boxing; trained over 150 amateur boxers drawn from the ranks of Toronto’s agencies, digital shops, media houses, and broadcasters; and generated over $120,000 for charity. We broadcast the event on FB LIVE and you can still watch last year’s footage today, just LIKE us on FB. Agency Wars 7 fight night will be on Nov 23rd at the CBC Studio 40 in downtown Toronto. Stay tuned, tickets go on sale in September!

For 12-weeks, alumni participants will train like boxers, with the same Olympic and elite amateur coaches and trainers who train Agency Wars fighters. Once again boxers drawn from the ranks of Toronto’s ad agencies, media companies, and marketing firms will box for charity before family, friends, co-workers, and industry rivals. Emotions will run high. For alumni, this is a second chance at glory! For the fight fans they get to see their friends and colleagues box again, with perhaps a few more year’s experience, fitness and confidence under their belt. Those that may have lost can box again to get that ‘W’ and those that won get a chance to prove they are the undisputed champion!

The Charity

We proudly support the Movember Foundation.
