As the calendar year nears end and the off-season continues, questions begin to loom about the structure of the next CrossFit Games season. So far, we know that the Open begins February 16, 2023 and the Games will begin July 31, 2023, according to CrossFit HQ. Semifinal locations, quarterfinal structure and the like have yet to be confirmed. And, where the Games will move after its final year in the cheese capital of the USA? That is yet to be determined; although, we’ve heard that news may come sooner than later.

On the latest podcast episode of Talking Elite Fitness, “Top Off-Season Questions”, hosted by Tommy Marquez and Sean Woodland, they disclosed that there’s rumblings from the inside that the 2024 (and potentially beyond) host city will be disclosed in the coming months.

“I’ve been told by people in the know that that should be happening before the end of the year,” Woodland said. 

Marquez explained that Wisconsin capital has been his favorite host city thus far (of a short list), and goes on to say: “There’s a reason why Kobe Bryant announced his retirement at the beginning of the season. By the last game, that thing was a party. If we know it’s not coming back to Madison after this year, we can do it justice by having a huge celebration in Madison as the host city, and the place that helped advance the Games as a whole, and have a nice send-off in that regard.”

Woodland followed up to say: “And you know, this what sources told me, close to the situation, multiple sources, that a decision is very close to being made if not having been made, and now it’s just a matter of figuring out when they want to announce it. And I was told, and again this is more speculation from people in the know but don’t have a final say, maybe by the end of the year.”

Other host cities thus far have been:

  • Aromas, CA: 2007-2009, and 2020
  • Carson, CA: 2010 – 2016
  • Madison, WI: 2017 – 2023*

*In 2020, the Games were moved to Aromas, CA due to the global pandemic 
In our conversation earlier this year with Justin Bergh, CrossFit’s General Manager of Sport, he told us that they intend to relocate for 2024 and that an international destination is not off the table.
