2022 World’s Strongest Man Competition To Debut Fan Festival

The package will include many benefits along with a meet and greet with the strongmen.

The World’s Strongest Man competition is the biggest even in the sport over the course of the year. Fans are able to attend and cheer for their favorite strongmen or just watch the incredible feats of strength. In 2022, the event will feature a Fan Festival that will be open to the public.

The WSM competition will return to Sacramento this year. In 2021, Tom Stoltman won his first ever WSM title in heat that got as high as 108 degrees. The crowd was small but they still provided great energy during the show. This year, the dedicated strongman fans will get a chance to be part of the action.

The competition will take place from May 24-29. VIP tickets are now on sale on the official website of the event. Individual day tickets range from $250 to $350. Five-day passes are available for $1,300.

“The VIP experience offers fans access to a premium viewing area of the competition, all-inclusive food and drink, and meet and greets with past and present legends of the sport. For the first time ever, this year’s event will also include a Fan Festival area that is free and open to the public with food trucks, tents showcasing local vendors, special events and giveaways, as well as a general admission viewing area so fans can catch all the action live,” according to the WSM press release.

There are different packages that fans can buy that will allow them to do different things over the course of the week. This includes food, drink, special events, and a meet and greet with current and former strongmen.

The current roster for the 2022 World’s Strongest Man competition includes 29 of the best from around the world. There is expected to be more confirmed before May.
