The competition, included into the “Belt & Road Initiative” (BRI) -a development strategy proposed by Chinese Government that focuses on connectivity and cooperation between Eurasian countries- will be finally open to all the IFBB-affiliated National Federations worldwide and will spread 80.000 $, in cash prizes, beside the points for the World Ranking and Elite Pro Cards offered for the Top athletes. 

Beyond that figures, the IFBB Belt & Road Championship will offers amazing news as the venue of the event: the Nan Men Square, in front of the Xi´an City Wall -one of the largest, oldest and preserved Chinese city walls-, built in the 14th century and enclosing an area of about 14 square kilometres. All this square will be refurbished for the event, hosting Hi-tech digital video-screens -up to 60 m. length- bringing an amazing mix of history and the latest technology.
