With its category as World Ranking and Elite Pro Card Qualifier event, the 2018 IFBB Belt & Road Grand Prix, scheduled for next September 17th – 22nd, in Xi´an (China); will be an iconic event for Bodybuilding and Fitness and will represent a “before and after” for the IFBB sports, in China.

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. 

Stay tuned.. more news are coming!

We are immersed in a health international emergency as a consequence of the Covid-19 epidemic.

In this situation, we must follow the applicable national and international regulations and the advice from governments and sanitary authorities.

All this has to be done with positive energy and best spirit, maintaining our focus on the fact that any epidemical situation has expansion, stabilization and reduction periods, and that with adequate care, this nightmare is going to be a bad memory soon.

By all means, the integrity of our athletes, officials, judges and of all who integrate our community is now and always essential. We are a family in sport and life.

We can expect to reach the epidemic peak and a progressive settle down, as is already happening in some of the countries in suffering this situation at first instance.

In conclusion, let’s be confident and keep working as a team, following the decisions from the competent authorities. Some events have been canceled and others are being rescheduled to a new date in which we may be able to celebrate with our athletes and friends our passion for sport and healthy lifestyle.

We recommend you visit the IFBB Calendar at our website www.IFBB.com on a regular basis, so that you may be fully updated on events and schedule.

Wishing you, your families and beloved one’s good health, and hoping that the situation will be back to normality as soon as possible
