The 2022 finals of the MLO Strongman Champions League (SCL) World Series, in which the world’s strongest athletes compete, will be held in Alanya, as it was last year. As a result of the races to be held on 5 and 6 November 2022, the league champion will be determined in Alanya.
The 2022 season of the Strongman Champions League World Series, which consists of a series of 16 races in total in 10 countries throughout the year and where the strongest athletes from each country can participate, started in Finland on April 23 and continued with races in different countries. In addition to the awards they earn per race, the athletes are fighting against each other to become the league champion with the points they collect in the series and to get the grand prize. The main goal of the athletes, who are the strongest in their own country, in this series is to become the champion of champions and take this title.
Strongman Champions League World Series Turkey Director Şükrü Cimrin made the following statement about the organization:
“We were included in the league for the first time in 2019, which is organized as 16 races in 13 countries with a total award of 350 thousand dollars. With the successful world finals we held last year, we have become an integral part of this league as Turkey. The race central committee has decided that the finals will be in Alanya this year as well. We have full confidence that we will successfully fulfill this responsibility we have taken, as all our sponsors and as Alanya. Carrying out such an organization watched by the whole world requires serious teamwork. Thank you to all the organizations and people who are with us.
We are planning to hold the Strongman Champions League World Finals, which will be held on 5 and 6 November 2022, at the famous Cleopatra Beach, which are two important visual points of Alanya, and on Pier Square the next day. There will be 6 races in total, 3 races on the first day at Cleopatra Beach and 3 races in front of the pier waterfall on the second day.
Fatih Karaca and Bora Güner from Turkey will represent our country against their strong rivals, as they did last year, in the races in which the strongest from each country will participate.
Our races are open to the public and we invite all of our people to watch this visual show of the strongest people in the world that challenges the laws of physics.
The Champions League world series is televised in 117 countries, with each race being a 50-minute episode. The races we will hold in Alanya will be shown in 117 countries for a total of 100 minutes as the last 2 episodes, as it is the world final. Thus, our Alanya and Turkey will be introduced to millions of viewers on television screens, which is still the most effective mass media. We will be able to watch the races in series on S Sport channel, the owner of the broadcast rights of the races in Turkey, and on S Sport after the end of the league.
The Strongman Champions League is also broadcast regularly in the cabin on Finnish Airlines Finnair and Evaair.
In order to make these programs more colorful, we will use the shots from these trips in the programs by visiting the beauties of Alanya with the athletes and letting them experience them, and our Alanya promotion will not be limited to the race area and its surroundings.
Rest Property and Sunprime C-Lounge Hotel are the main sponsors of our organization hosted by our Alanya Municipality, with the contributions of Alanya Tourism and Promotion Foundation, Alanya Touristic Operators Association, and Alanya Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In addition, our 24/7 transfer company will be our transportation sponsor by undertaking all our transfers and transportation throughout the week. We will continue to share our other sponsors in the coming days.”
