Changes To The Olympia This Year
Let’s talk about some of the most notable changes to the Olympia this year.
New owner Jake Wood and Olympia relocation
As you may or may not know, the Olympia was sold by American Media LLC earlier this year to Wings of Strength owner Jake Wood who said he wanted to “bring the event back to the fans“.
Shortly after, Chief Olympia Officer Dan Solomon announced that the Olympia would move back to the Las Vegas strip at the request of fans, athletes, sponsors, etc.
Although, it would be pushed three months back to December so that competitors could have the chance to qualify for the big event.
However, the plans would once again change which forced the Olympia to quickly move the event to the Orange County Convention center in Orlando Florida due to gathering restrictions.
The dates are still the same though.
Free Live stream and Pay-Per-View (PPV)
Another very big change this year is that the Olympia has decided to offer two PPV packages for the competitions. Therefore, we won’t be able to watch the competitions for free as we did years prior.
The good news is that there is a free live stream option called the “Fan Channel,” although it will be much more limited in content.
The PPV packages can be purchased through the streaming service Olympia TV on Olympiaproductions.com, where you can also access the free live stream.
Watch the events from anywhere on most devices. You can also check the website to make sure your device is supported for streaming.
Here are some details on the two packages and the fan channel.
Note: The video mentions a discount for either PPV package purchased before December 9th, but it’s no longer offered at the time of this update.
Free Fan Channel: Free Live Stream

If you prefer to not spend money on the PPV packages; this is the best option for you!
Now, you won’t be able to see any of the competitions on the Fan Channel. But… it is the only place where you’ll be able to watch the Expo; an event where fans get to meet athletes and celebrities.
So, if you’ve purchased a package, then you may still want…
