Aug 14, 2019 by

The 2019-2020 CrossFit Games season has unofficially kicked off with the release of the International Online Qualifier event 1 on Monday evening. If you haven’t been paying attention, the International Online Qualifier (IOQ) is a single online qualifier for four Sanctionals: Filthy150, Wodapalooza, Atlas Games and SouthFit CrossFit Challenge.

Fittest in Cape Town changes:

  • There will be 30 male, 30 female and 30 elite teams.
  • They are also adding a single-day community team event, and two-day competition categories for 15-17-year-old teens and a 40+ masters division.
  • FiCT continues the trend of Sanctionals not using wildcard invites.

How to qualify:

  • Champions of FiCT 2019 will receive direct invites to compete in 2020.
  • Top 10 male and female athletes and top 5 teams from the 2019 CrossFit Games will receive automatic invites. There will be no backfilling.
  • The top 10 male and female athletes from the 2019-2020 Open will receive automatic qualification. There will be no backfilling.
  • Athletes must register before the start of FiCT’s online qualifier otherwise their spot is forfeited.
  • All remaining spots (teams and individuals) will be filled from their online qualifier from November 22 – December 2, 2019.

Another important update: According to an Instagram post, West Coast Classic is going to be using the Open as their qualifier, joining seven other Sanctionals. More than 1/4th of all Sanctionals will use the Open in the 2019-2020 season.
