IFBB is pleased to announce that, the World Fitness Championships, the World men’s championships, and the World IFBB Congress will be held together in the beautiful city of Benidorm, Spain, from 5th to 9th of November.

This decision has been adopted, having in consideration the high density of international competitions and the late beginning of the season due to the covid 19 pandemic, facilitating National Federations arrangements for their teams and officials traveling in one weekend.

Next year the World Men’s Championships and Congress and the World Fitness Championships will be organized as usual in two different dates and places.

IFBB and CBBA are working in the project for 2021 World Men Championships and Congress to be held in Xi’an, the historical capital of the Chinese Empire that the last years have organized at the highest level the Belt and Road international event; evidencing their exceptional capacity to organize an outstanding World Championships.

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

All the events that were planned for March and April are being postponed and rescheduled
