Tickets Available Now for “World’s Strongest” Event

(Charleston, W.Va.) – The Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) and Official Strongman Games (OSG) announced today the 2023 SBD Official Strongman Games are coming to Charleston December 1-3. Nearly 400 athletes from more than 30 countries are scheduled to compete in the three-day competition to determine the “World’s Strongest.” The Charleston Coliseum will host this series of six intense tests of strength as some of the world’s best strongmen and strongwomen go head-to-head.

“We’re excited to bring the Official Strongman Games to Charleston,” said Lynn Morehouse from Official Strongman. “Not only are competitors immensely strong, but they also must be athletic and well-conditioned. Throughout the three days of competition, fans will watch the best of the best compete as the field narrows from nearly 400 to just the top 10 athletes per class for Sunday’s finals. It’s the ultimate spectator sport, full of energy, emotion, and excitement!”

OSG is the world’s largest international strongman and strongwoman competition. Since 2017, the Official Strongman Games has become a destination event for strength fans worldwide.

“We are thrilled to host the Official Strongman Games at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin. “We look forward to welcoming strongmen and strongwomen athletes from more than 30 countries and their fans, and the high energy they bring, to experience all that our Capital City has to offer.”

Tickets are now available through Ticketmaster for the 2023 SBD Official Strongman Games. See the Official Strongman Games website for event schedule and lineup.
