Fans Are Getting Duped by Fake CrossFit Games Streams

Don't be fooled — here's where you can actually watch the Games.

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:

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.

The following sites have claimed that audiences can view a live stream of the Games on their pages. They are not official streams and should be avoided. Do not enter any information on the following sites as they could be scams with the potential to compromise any information submitted:

  • Crossfitgames24.com
  • Crossfitgames24.com/live-stream

The following Facebook pages are also fake and should be avoided:

  • Streaming Today Live Events
  • The 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games (listed as @TheReebokCrossFitGames2020)
  • The 2020 CrossFit Games (listed as a TV channel)
  • The CrossFit Games Live (listed as a sports event)

The official CrossFit Games Facebook page has a blue checkmark and is listed as @CrossFitGames.

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.
