The Home Depot Center in Carson, CA will be home to the 2011 CrossFit Games from July 29-31. The 125 acre facility, located on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills, is a fantastic venue for our sport, with the Tennis and Track stadiums being the main arenas again, each with 8,000 seats.

We’re proud to announce that Reebok is the title sponsor of the Games. Reebok and CrossFit have created a ten-year partnership, and part of the Reebok commitment to the CrossFit community is a $1 million purse for the Games season, including a top prize of $250,000 each for the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth.

Approximately 50 men, 50 women, 50 teams, and 20 Masters for each division will qualify for the Games and the opportunity to compete for the title of Fittest on Earth™. The season begins in early March with the Open Qualifiers, and follows up with 17 Regionals in late May and June.

The competition will be fierce, so good luck to all in their training!”
