The Sombo participants in the United States have only had regional tournaments to exhibit their skills and determine the most competent players. A majority, of the Sombo teachers and training facilities are located, in the most populated areas of the country, the Northeast and Southwest. Therefore, there is a verifiable need to provide a National Championship.

Due to the cost and complexity to plan and provide a suitable venue the Central City Organizing Committee proposes to make the National Championship a semi-annual event.

Organizing and successfully executing a National Championship sporting event, for the National Governing Body of the Sombo Sport Organization, is a multi-year task and requires careful coordination and collaboration with the Governing Body and local organizing committee.

The objective of this project is to present and obtain the National Championship Sporting Event from the Sombo Sport Governing Body, concluding in the successful execution of the premier sporting event for the sport of Sombo.

This project proposal will cover scope, budget, schedule, risk analysis, monitor and control methods, audit plans, communication plan and termination plan. As well as relevant project management tools, to successfully plan/execute the project that will include required deliverables to achieve the objective of the project.


This project is only available to students, staff, and faculty of Portland State University
