CrossFit-sanctioned competitions are replacing CrossFit's Regional events and will become a direct pathway for the top men, women and teams to receive invitations to compete at the CrossFit Games. The Wodapalooza CrossFit Championship is one of seven CrossFit-sanctioned events. Additional sanctioned events will be announced in the coming months.

As with all CrossFit-sanctioned events in the 2019 Games season, should the top male or female athlete at a CrossFit-sanctioned event qualify for the CrossFit Games by other means, the number-two podium finisher will receive a Games invitation. Athletes can qualify for the 2019 CrossFit Games via four paths: (1) winning their country’s national championship as determined by the worldwide CrossFit Games Open; (2) taking first place at a CrossFit-sanctioned event; (3) placing within the top 20 finishers in the 2019 CrossFit Games Open; or (4) participating as one of four at-large athletes selected by CrossFit Inc.
