Choose between a full ESPN3 production and complete coverage of every heat of every event.

 

The CrossFit Games are going to be on the ESPN networks again!

Not only are you going to be able to catch the Games live on ESPN3 this July, we're producing another dozen 30-minute shows for ESPN2.

And, for the first time ever, the Central East Regional will be carried live on ESPN3.

Tune in Friday, May 11 through Sunday, May 13 for three days of live action from the Central East Regional. Watch top performers from previous Games like Rich Froning, Graham Holmberg, Dan Bailey, Julie Foucher, Lindsey Smith and Michelle Kinney battle the rest of the hungry field. Only three men and three women will qualify for the Games, so the competition is going to be fierce! 
 
Each day, the ESPN3 events will have four to six hours of highly produced coverage of the key heats, along with analysis, highlights and athlete interviews. A complete schedule will be released soon.
 
ESPN3 is available at no additional cost to fans who receive their Internet or video subscription from an affiliated provider in the U.S. (Find a full list here). It is accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app and through ESPN on Xbox LIVE. For fans outside the U.S., ESPN International will be delivering the ESPN3 stream on the Games site.
 
Do you prefer to see every heat of every event? We've got you covered there too. There will be a separate stream on the Games site of all the action. Non-stop coverage of the entire day, combined with the local PA audio. This means you'll see and hear exactly what the local spectators see on the video wall and hear over the PA. There won't be separate on-air commentary or analysis. 
 
No matter which stream you watch, this will be the best, most comprehensive coverage of a Regional yet. More information and a complete schedule coming soon!
 
What about the other Regionals? We won't be streaming live, but we will have videos produced through each day of every event from every region. Each one will have highlights and results, including the top performances, within a few hours of it happening. That's well over a dozen videos a day from around the world. 
 
Plus, tune in each night (Friday through Sunday) for a fresh Regionals Update Show for the top stories, insights and analysis of the competitions.
 

Regionals kick off in just a few days. We're ready. Are you?
