Tinder brings single combat sports lovers together with a kiss cam for Muay Thai

BANGKOK, THAILAND — Tinder®, the world’s most popular app for meeting new people, is kickstarting another Season of Love with a unique Muay Thai-love combo for singles.

Adding its own twist to the popular “kiss cam” at sports events around the world, Tinder’s “Single’s Cam” will offer a new way for singles to connect at the world’s first Muay Thai stadium, Bangkok’s Rajadamnern Stadium, from April 01 to June 30.

Thai Tinder users are increasingly connecting over shared passions and sports is one of them, seen with Thai Tinder users ranking “sports” amongst their top 10 Interests in 2023. It’s not only international sports such as Football or Running that Thais are passionate about, Thailand’s national sport of Muay Thai is also popular amongst Thai Gen Z daters with mentions of “Muay Thai” in Thai Tinder bios are up 20% year-on-year.


How does Tinder’s Single’s Cam work?

  • Those taking part must be single and opt-in on fight night.
  • Live stadium cameras will randomly select two single people and show them on the big screen.
  • The potential couple can then signal their interest to match live for all to see!

How to add a Muay Thai Interest to your profile

  • Open the Tinder app.
  • Tap the profile icon and then tap the pencil icon.
  • Scroll down to “Interests” and select “Muay Thai” (you can select a maximum of five Interests, but need a minimum of three).
  • Click “done” and Muay Thai will be added and displayed on your profile.

If you’re a newbie to fight night, here are some explainers that will help you get your Muay Thai game on:

  • Muay Thai is known as the “art of eight limbs,” named after the eight body parts which are used as weapons – two fists, two shins, two elbows and two knees.
  • A fighter is called nakmuay and the headband worn by nakmuay is called a mongkol. It’s worn pre-fight and is thought to hold special powers. Once in the ring, nakmuay perform a ceremonial dance called the Wai Kru, after which the trainer removes the mongkol before the fight commences.
  • Fights are made up of five rounds of three minutes each, with a two-minute break in between rounds. A round is called a yok and the referee is known as gama gan.
