WAL 2019 Update!

December 20th 2018

2018 was an epic year for the sport of armwrestling and for WAL.  This past year netted some truly amazing growth for the World Armwrestling League and its competitors.  Congratulations to the WAL competitors, community, staff, and all of our partners for their commitment to helping achieve the WAL vision. Here are a few of the wins from 2018:

More than $250,000 in prize money

58 Hours of live programming which included 10 local events, 5 primetime Majors and 1 Championship

Over 111,000,000 total media impressions from national, regional and local media PR coverage

Over 4,000,000 Media Views across social media platforms

Over 1,600,000 engagements on social media

Over 14,000,000 aggregate impressions


While 2018 yielded a huge leap forward, the WAL team has continued to focus on the future and that begins with WAL 2019.  This coming year will see another huge stride forward across many areas.  Let's begin with the Supermatch Showdown Series 2019 schedule. Look for bigger events, bigger production and even bigger payouts. Our 2019 events:

April 18 Pittsburgh- Stage AE- 8pm EST
May 16 Baltimore- Rams Head Live- 8pm EST
June 20 Richmond - The National- 8pm EST
July 18 LA-  The Novo- 4:30pm PST
August 15- Tulsa OK - Cain’s Ballroom- 8pm EST
September 25-  Atlanta GA- "Championship Night"- Turner Arena -Time is TBD


2019 will also bring the launch of the WAL app, enhancement of the WAL website, and global expansion.

We will continue to hold solid local events that provide ongoing competition throughout the year.  2019 will see a minimum of 10 local events with WAL adding promotion and other support to help make the 2019 local events the best ones to date.  WAL will also be adding several new members to the WAL team.  One of these new staff members will be dedicated to improving the local events structure making the 2019 events better than ever.   Additionally, there will be an expansion of a WAL Pro Series in conjunction with these local events.  This is scheduled for the second half of 2019, and will give the spotlight for more WAL competitors and will provide a launchpad for competitors to be able to qualify for the elite series.  Details on this to come.
