Europa Sports is so much more than the nation’s largest distributor of nutritional supplements, sports drinks, and accessories. For proof of that, look no further than the Europa Games-a national, four-city fitness tour that unites more than 150,000 attendees and 35,000 competitors for dozens of athletic events. From CrossFit to cheerleading to martial arts and sports nutrition classes, there’s something for everybody.
Growing by the Numbers
This is the fourth year that the Europa Games were held in Hartford, Connecticut. The 2012 show in Hartford attracted 22,000 attendees. This year, the event grew to include 35,000 attendees and 8,600 athletes competing in dozens of sporting events. The Europa Games in Dallas nearly doubled the Hartford expo with 85,330 attendees who came to support 16,450 athletes across 33 events. Not to mention, 580 vendors were also in on the action. Looking back, the 2012 Dallas event had just under 65,000 people. We’re getting stronger every year. Are you in?
The 2013 Europa Games in Dallas featured a variety of events with some incredible cash prizes. Approximately 1,000 CrossFit athletes competed for a $20,000 prize in the Europa War Games, the largest two-day CrossFit competition in the country. Other highlights include nearly 1,000 grapplers going for $5,000; as well as 500 youth wrestlers competing for $5,000; a Tae Kwon Do championship for $3,000 in cash; and a $10,000 Muscle Pharm Obstacle Course.
We’re pumped to know the Europa Games is growing year after year, city after city. If you have yet to become part of this event, now is the time to get on board. Next year is projecting to be our biggest yet.
