4 all-star teams,
November 9, 2014.
CrossFit's international team competition is making its first trip to U.S. soil after two years abroad.
The competition will be held at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, on Sunday, Nov. 9.
This will be the third consecutive year of the event. Last October, Team World—made up of Europeans, Canadians and Australians—was able to avenge Team Europe’s 2012 20-6 loss by taking the fifth and final event to score a 24-19 victory over a stacked Team USA. (Watch: USA vs The World: Decisions That Made the Difference.) The sold out competition took place in Berlin’s Templehof Airport, and was broadcast live to 59 countries in Europe and streamed live to North America.
This fall, the CrossFit Invitational will feature four all-star teams in a new format. Four-person teams will consist of top athletes from the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Each team will be streamlined to just two men, two women and one coach. The rosters have yet to be announced, so stay tuned to the Games site for updates in the coming weeks.
The competition will take place from 4-6 p.m. PT. Gates will open early, and there will be a vendor village and activities for fans who want to throwdown, mingle or shop before the event.
Ticket details will be released on Games.CrossFit.com.
