IMPORTANT UPDATE: 7:45PM MST - Tues. 3/3/20
The latest guidance from government officials in Ohio is that the competition will continue as scheduled,  without spectators. Seating in the venue will be drastically reduced to reflect this order. 

After further consultation with organizers of the Arnold Sports Festival, we have been informed that registered athletes will be allowed to assist other athletes in the warm-up area, but may not loiter in or around the venue. 

Currently only athletes, registered coaches, technical officials and parents of minor athletes will be permitted to attend their scheduled competition session. Volunteers assisting with the execution of the event, along with pre-credentialed media, will also be permitted in the venue. 

The Expo portion of the Arnold Festival has been canceled. We will post more information as we receive it from Arnold Sports Festival organizers and government officials.

All of these restrictions, including further reduction of venue access, are subject to change at any time by state and/or local authorities. 

All athletes must complete the COVID-19 Self-Certification Form below prior to picking up event credentials.
