The Arnold Sports Festival Will Return To Columbus In September

The Arnold Sports Festival is making its return to Columbus in September.

The world’s best bodybuilders will battle it out for over $400,000 in prize money when the 2021 Arnold Classic returns to Columbus on September 25.

The world’s best bodybuilders and the fittest men and women on the planet will battle for $412,000 in prize money when the 2021 Arnold Classic and related IFBB Pro League contests return to Columbus on Saturday, Sept. 25.

“It is important to offer full prize money at the Arnold Classic this year,” co-founder and promoter Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said. “The athletes deserve to be rewarded for their hard work and dedication during this difficult year. We promise to make this year’s Arnold Classic one to remember.”

The 2021 Arnold Sports Festival, originally scheduled for March, was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The Arnold Classic has been held for 32 consecutive years and it would be unthinkable to go a year without providing the athletes the opportunity to compete,” Schwarzenegger said. “My support of the sport of bodybuilding is enormous and, with the help of our sponsors, we are committed to making this year’s Arnold Classic a tremendous success.”

Tickets for the 2021 Arnold Classic will go on sale June 15.

The 2022 Arnold Sports Festival will return to the Greater Columbus Convention Center from March 3-6, 2022. More information will be released soon and you can get all the details on the Arnold Sports Festival website.
