The 2019 Dubai CrossFit Championship is a four-day Sanctionals competition, which will take place Dec. 11-14, 2019. Events will be hosted at three iconic venues in the United Arab Emirates with the goal of bringing together individual and team athletes from around the world to compete in the spirit of fitness. 

Interested in competing in the 2019 DCC? Athletes competing in the 2019 Games can earn their invite to Dubai this weekend! The DCC is sponsoring a Games event on Saturday, Aug. 3, and the winners, one man and one woman, will receive a direct invite to compete in the finals in Dubai. 

You can also qualify for the DCC finals by completing the CrossFit Games Open online competition and registering for the DCC Online Qualifier. The Open will be held this October. The workouts and scores for the Open will be the same as the DCC Online Qualifier. There is a $76,000 prize purse available for the Online Qualifier this year. Athletes looking to qualify for the finals in Dubai must register here and enter their scores and videos from each workout into the Dubai CrossFit Championship Online Qualifier leaderboard.

Additionally, the DCC will host the Take Me to Dubai Raffle after the 2019 Open concludes and award 10 winners at random an all-expenses paid (flights, hotel, pocket money, and VIP tickets) a trip for two to Dubai. The raffle will provide five men and five women who didn’t qualify for the finals a chance to attend the competition in December of 2019. To be eligible you must successfully register for and submit all workouts and videos.

As a Sanctional, the DCC also serves as a way to earn your spot to the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games. The first-place finisher in the DCC elite individual male, elite individual female, and team division will each receive an invite to compete at the 2020 Games.

The “Fittest in Dubai” documentary, an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at some of the best stories and experiences from the 2018 competition, is scheduled for a Fall 2019 release date. Fans will be able to dive deep into the sights and sounds from the 2018 DCC.
