As we quickly approach the 2019 CrossFit Games, CrossFit HQ is starting to roll out and announce more Sanctional™ events for the upcoming 2020 Games season. We already have knowledge of six Sanctional events scheduled to take place for the 2020 CrossFit Games season, and with the latest press release that total now comes to ten.
As of right now, there has been no word on how many Sanctionals will take place over the course of the 2020 CrossFit Games season. However, in CrossFit HQ’s latest press release, they wrote that the official 2020 CrossFit Sanctional schedule will be released at some point in May — so we won’t have to wait much longer. For the 2019 Games season, there were 15 Sanctional events held across the globe, so we’re interested to see how many will be held for 2020 season.
The latest announced events will be taking place in four different countries: Germany, Egypt, United States, and Norway. As has been the case in other CrossFit Sanctional events, the top individual athletes (male and female) and team will receive invites to compete at the 2020 CrossFit Games.
