There has been a series of fake live-streams for the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games Finals circulating online, according to a post in the CrossFit subreddit. The Finals, which take place Friday through Sunday, Oct. 23-25, 2020, can only be watched on these official streams:
- Pluto TV
- CrossFit Games’ Facebook page
- CrossFit Games’ YouTube channel
- CBS Sports — live, two-hour broadcast on CBS Television Network from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020.
Any other stream than the above channels is either fake or a bootleg stream and not official coverage of the 2020 CrossFit Games. You can refer to our article on how to watch the Games to ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action.

No In-Person Spectators
The 2020 CrossFit Games are taking place across several locations in northern California, including “The Ranch” in Aromas. Stage One of the Games, which saw the reigning Fittest Man on Earth® Mat Fraser and reigning Fittest Woman on Earth® Tia-Clair Toomey rise to the top of the field, was an entirely remote event. Back in April, CrossFit HQ announced that for 2020, “The Games Will Not Be A Public Event.”
Although the finals will be live and in-person for the 10 finalists — five men and five women — there will not be any spectators allowed at the event. If a site or social media page attempts to sell you tickets to the 2020 CrossFit Games, it is a scam.
