Texas sports promoters are required to obtain two separate Texas sports promoter bonds.
Each of the bonds is for $15,000, and the bonds are categorized as follows:
Besides being a precondition for licensing, the purpose of the first Texas sports promoter bond is to serve as a financial guarantee against any acts of fraud, unlawful misrepresentation, or theft committed by a Texas sports promoter, or any employees, in the course of their business.
The second Texas sports promoter bond is for one thing only: The guarantee of payment of gross tax receipts for any sporting event to the state of Texas.
Both bonds are issued to protect the state of Texas; the bonds are not issued as protection for the Texas sports promoter.
The premium for each Texas combative sports promoter bond may be as little as $225/each.
