With the Open behind us, here's what's in store for CrossFit Affiliate owners looking to attend Regionals and the Games.
Each affiliate owner will be allotted two complimentary, non-transferable passes to his or her respective Regional. This pass will be in the form of an affiliate credential (badge). Affiliate Badges can be picked up at will call with a valid photo ID (must be the affiliate's Licensee of Record/LOR). Affiliates must be active as of May 7, 2018, to receive these passes.
The badge grants affiliate owners and one guest daily entrance to the venue, VIP affiliate area (venue-dependent), athlete warm-up area (venue-dependent) and the Affiliate Lounge.
REGIONALS: AFFILIATE LOUNGE
New in 2018: Regionals will now offer an Affiliate Lounge, which will be located in Vendor Village. Be sure to stop by and meet fellow affiliate owners, members of the Affiliate Team, and other representatives from CrossFit Headquarters. Get special swag (while supplies last), and mix and mingle at an off-site reception hosted by CrossFit Headquarters. The Affiliate Lounge will be open Friday through Sunday.
RSVP here for you and a guest, and receive additional information on the affiliate reception slated for Saturday evening. Your RSVP must be received by no later than 6 p.m. PT on Tuesday, May 1.
GAMES TICKETS: AFFILIATE PRE-SALE
Affiliates that had 12 or more athletes signed up for the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Open will get early access to Ticketmaster to purchase up to eight Festival + Coliseum Packages and an unlimited number of Festival packages, while quantities last (must be purchased in one transaction).
The affiliate ticket pre-sale will begin Friday, April 20, 2018, and last through Wednesday, April 25, 2018.
To gain early access, you must have a code. Affiliate Managers should sign into their account at Games.CrossFit.com and check their competition dashboard page to find their unique code, which will allow them to purchase up to eight Festival + Coliseum Packages through Ticketmaster. Codes will be displayed on April 11.
If you are having trouble accessing your passcode, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have trouble processing your ticket order, please contact Ticketmaster at 1-800-653-8000, or check out Ticketmaster’s customer service FAQ.
Anyone can use the code. If the Affiliate Manager is not interested in purchasing tickets, he or she can hand it off to another member at the gym or a friend halfway around the world. There are no restrictions on who can use the code; it’s entirely up to you and your Affiliate Manager.
Keep in mind that the code can only be used once for a single purchase. For example, you will not be able to have four friends purchase two packages each. In that scenario, you will need to have one friend buy eight packages and have the other three friends pay him or her back.
Beginning Thursday, April 26, 2018, remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public.
GAMES: AFFILIATE LOUNGE
Escape the heat and kick back in style at the Affiliate Lounge! Affiliate owners and one guest will receive access to this private area reserved for affiliate owners.
Catch the action on TV screens in an air-conditioned room and enjoy hosted happy hours and complimentary snacks. Receive exclusive swag and unwind with mobile phone charging stations and water stations. Put your name in the hat for vendor prizes and giveaways. Rub shoulders with the CrossFit Affiliate Team and special guests.
Note: The Affiliate Badge credential at the Games does not provide access to the grounds at the CrossFit Games. A Festival Ticket or Festival + Coliseum Ticket is needed to gain entry to the week-long event. Affiliate owners may pick up their Affiliate Badges at will call.
Thank you for your passion and continued efforts, day in and day out, as an affiliate owner. We hope to see you at an event soon to celebrate!
