The 2020 NY Pro has been moved.
A major shake up has occurred for the annual New York Pro show. While the event is usually held in New Jersey, it appears that due to the global health crisis, there has been a switch in location.
The 2020 NY Pro will now take place in Tampa, Florida. The move was possible made due to the success of the recent Tampa Pro show. This comes after an announcement earlier this year postponing the event – which usually takes place in May. Confirmation came from the official Bev Francis Instagram page.
IFBB Pro head judge Steve Weinberger also had this to say about the NY Pro.
