SÃO PAULO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The host cities have been set for the Torneio CrossFit Brasil (TCB) (CrossFit Brazil Tournament), the main event for the sport in the country. The cities chosen to host the qualifiers are: Mogi das Cruzes /SP, Paulínia /SP, Niterói /RJ, Belo Horizonte /MG, Curitiba /PR, Brasília /DF and Fortaleza /CE.
The events are organized by CrossFit Brasil and by Eta! Comunicação e Eventos, with sponsorship by Gladius Equipment and by Progenex Suplementos in 2017.TCB also has Rocktape, CrossX Solutions, Ultrawod, PAM CrossFit, Vitória Hotéis and Laroc Club, signed on to the project.
This Monday (March 27), registration begins for the TCB Regional Qualifiers. 960 entrants are expected, divided among 8 Regional Qualifiers.
“We’re always seeking to bring new elements to the public, the athletes and to our sponsors. For this 8th edition of the TCB, we are launching the Teen Category (ages 14 to 17) and opening up another sub-category in the Master (ages 38 - 44 and over 45). In addition, without a doubt, the most significant new aspect will be the venue chosen for the grand final. The Laroc Club, Brazil’s main Sunset Club at this time, will provide us with the opportunity to add a bit more of a “show” for the public. We will be having 4 days of competition in Valinhos /SP, with evening trials, excellent audio-visual quality and performance, exclusive box seating, in an environment that is not only totally innovative for this particular sport, but also for national sport as a whole,” said Thales Antoniolli, the event’s organizer.
