305 competitors from 76 clubs from 14 countries of Europe participated, but also one far eastern Asian country of India.

The special guest and promoter of the tournament was Semmy Schilt, the Duch kick boxer, four time K-1 World Gran Prix Champion and one time GLORY heavyweight Grand Slam Champion. He is the only fighter in K-1 history who won Glory world championships three times in a row.

The competition took place in two disciplines of kick boxing, tatami Kick light and ring K-1, in the age categories ranging from senior, cadets, juniors to seniors, in women's and men's categories.

The competition began on Saturday, March 16, in the elimination bouts, so that on Sunday, March 17, some of the finals were completed during the day and the top ten final bouts were left for the special Gala evening program, which was designed as a real spectacle, started at 20,00h.

In front of about 1500 spectators and in front of the television cameras, the best fighters of the tournament faced each other in the ring.

The best competitor of the Serbia Open Cup was Remzija Dacić, -75kg K-1 from Montenegro.

The best female competitor was Marina Dekic, 56kg K-1, Kik Boxing Club "Internacional" Zrenjanin. The winners were awarded by Semmy Schilt, 4th World Glory Champion in K-1, who was the promoter of the tournament.

Within the special program of the Cup it was held the seminar in K-1, led by Semmy Schilt personally. Three hours of socializing and practicing with the champion were invaluable to all competitors who were eager to improve their career with the best in this matter. Simple explanations and demonstration of the techniques, as well as sparing supervision, confirmed why Semmy Schilt is the giant is not only by its physical constitution (2.10 m tall, weighing over 110 kg), but also by his heart and the passion to transfer precious knowledge to younger fighters who are just getting up for their biggest victories.
