What a weekend it was… We’ve spent the last few days reflecting on the Under Armour Turf Games Winter Festival and the phenomenal atmosphere. The energy in the room was beyond our imagination and we can’t thank each and every one of you enough for taking part, supporting, volunteering and believing in the Under Armour Turf Games concept. The competition has stepped up yet again and the literal blood, sweat and tears poured on to the turf by this year’s teams was amazing to watch.

Our headline partner Under Armour with supporting partners, BLK BOX, Bodega Bay Drinks and Reign allowed us to deliver a stand out event that pushed all teams to another level. Special thanks also goes to our equipment suppliers BLK BOX, Compete Force, MT3 Fitness (Torque Tanks) and Concept2 who brought all the fun gear to test the teams.
Thank you to our awesome food and drink suppliers - Fresh Fitness Food, Bodega Bay Drinks, Reign, Oatopia, Vits & Kicks, Mani Life, Rite Flex, Actiph Water, Jubel & The Curators.
A big shout out to our athlete recovery partners – Live Free Wellness, Normatec, Recovery Room and Theragun.
Your support and coverage on social media has been next level and has allowed us to relive the workouts all over again. As always we welcome any feedback so please feel free to email us (email@example.com) with anything you’d like to say regarding the event or what you’d like to see moving forwards so that we can continually push the boundaries.
Additional thanks goes to those brands that supplied snacks and drinks for our judges and crew. Manilife, Creative Nature, Upbeat, Rebel Mylk, Graze, Remedy Drinks and Jimmy's Iced Coffee you kept us fueled all day.
We are aware that the athlete area on the day was very crowded and we are working on making this much improved for the Summer Festival and moving forward. Based on demand for teams we tried to squeeze in as many as we could so people didn’t miss out but this meant the athlete area was far too small.
We truly believe ALL athletes that competed were winners but the official results table looked like this :)
Champions – Gladiators NI
2nd Place - Hakuna Masquata
3rd Place - FITMOB
Champions - BLK BOX
2nd Place - Team Curators X AMRAP
3rd Place - Motus Minions
Next stop Dubai in March, followed by a huge build up to the London Summer Festival beginning on March 21st. Stay tuned… big things are coming. See you on the TURF.
MASSIVE THANK YOU
To our incredible team of volunteers
