Over the past several years, the CrossFit Games’ broadcast had evolved. This year will be no different. Yesterday, CrossFit HQ announced that the 2019 CrossFit Games will have a “professional feed [that] will be produced with open-source options for broadcast partners and fans to enjoy and call the action.”

CrossFit HQ is opening up the distribution and media coverage of the Games. “Fans will be able to watch the competition live and in more languages than ever before,” said Justin Bergh, General Manager of the CrossFit Games. “This is a more organic approach to distributing content, in which we’re inviting individuals and outlets from around the world to create the Games viewing experience that they would want for themselves.”

Media outlets will now have the opportunity to broadcast the Games and put their own spin on the commentary. CrossFit’s goal is to allow the Games to “shine through a radiant multinational lens.” Fans will be able to watch coverage of the Games via YouTube, along with other outlets that will provide their own commentary/stream.

The 2019 CrossFit Games begin August 1.
