Some new information concerning the IFBB Europeans from the EBBF meeting held in Sevilla;


The main topic was the organization of the 2014 European Championships. Usually, three or two separate continental championships were staged in different places but this year, first time in the EBFF history, all three continental championships will be held as a one continuous event. “The World Capital of Fitness” Santa Susanna was approved as the host city. Spanish Federation’svery experienced team of organizers, with its President Jose Ramos, supported by the city authorities, with Mayor Joan Campolier, and traditional Spanish hospitality guarantee that these combined Championships will be prepared and run professionally, according to the highest IFBB standards.Anyway, this new situation created new problems, which should be studied and solved in a different way than previously.

First, the registration. More than 600 athletes are expected, so EBB decided to run the registration in a similar manner as at the Arnold Classic: the whole arrival day (Wednesday) will be devoted to registration and it will be done country by country, according to their arrival time, not category by category as it was practiced in the past and required all national teams to be in the hotel. Overweight competitors will have 60 minutes to drop their bodyweight below the upper limit for their categories. To speed up the registration, EBFF urges all National Federations to do all necessary payments in advance, via Pay-Pal system. All those, who don’t pay in advance, will have to pay EUR 20 more per person.

Then the order of competition and other details:

- Categories with weight/height limits or bodyweight categories will be run first, on Thursday and Friday.

- Women’s categories and men’s / juniors fitness will be run later, on Saturday and Sunday.

- EBFF Electoral Congress will be held Saturday morning.

- The best teams classification will be done for three Championships separately: European Bodybuilding Championships, European Fitness Championships and European Juniors & Masters Championships.

- Competitors will receive places from 1st to 15th in all categories (with full semifinals). The concept of scoring athletes in the finals only (top six) tested at the 2013 Arnold Europe will not be applied in the future official events.

- Competitors may participate in more than one age divisions, i.e. juniors and masters can start in women’s and men’s divisions; however they will be obliged to pay additional EUR 100 participation fee per category.

- Athletes will not take part in the Parade of Nations. Due to the problems with warming-up and not enough place on stage (40 countries expected), only one official per country and a volunteer with the flag will participate in the Parade of Nations.

- In 2014 one new category will be run at the European Fitness Championships: Masters Women Bikini Fitness age over 35 as one open class. Depending on the popularity of this category, it will be expanded at the continental level or even advanced to the World Fitness Championships.

- There will be 2 Junior Women’s Bikini Fitness categories: u to 163 cm and over 163 cm
More details will be provided in the Inspection Report to be published soon.

Head uudised Eurosport vahendab selle aasta Euroopa meistrivõistlusi Hispaaniast Santa -Susannas 14-18 mai! Ei tea mis mahus, kuid see on suur samm ala populariseerimiseks. Ca 10 aastat tagasi mäletan kanti pidevalt ka kulturismi Eurospordist üle - kunagi õnnestus endal lausa ühte reklaamklippi sisse saada oma vibutamisega.... ;)

Dear friends:

As President of the European Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation, it is a great pleasure to extend my warmest welcome to all the athletes, delegates, officials and bodybuilding enthusiasts travelling to Spain, to hold, in one of the most beautiful resorts of the Mediterranean Catalonian coast, the 2014 European Bodybuilding & Fitness championships in which we are establishing a new record of attendance of competitors and countries.

We, in the IFBB family, are proud of the long term relationship of understanding, enjoyment and brotherhood established between our federation members and Santa Susanna.

In 2003, our ways crossed, and since then, we established a close relation that produced already many successful international events, with the bodybuilding and fitness lifestyleas protagonist, making Santa Susanna the World Fitness Capital.

This year the event will be Televised by Eurovision via satellite, what is an excellent news for the sport and the city.

The EBFF wishes to recognize and thank for their generous support and contribution the Santa Susanna City Hall and its Mayor and IFBB Patron, Mr. Joan Campolier, the original driving force and inspiration of this great concept;that will make once again possible that, next May 14-18, our best athletes will meet in a great sport environment at the city of Santa Susanna, to compete and enjoy nice journeys of friendship and solidarity, under the inspiration of our IFBB principles.

Thank you extended to the Spanish Bodybuilding Federation, with José and Carlos Ramos, and to all the officials and supporters, for their commitment and contributions to make possible the event.

Santa Susanna, a meaningful city for the legion of visitors that, throughout the year, enjoy their magnificent hotels, beaches and weather. It is becoming the most attractive meeting point for bodybuilding and fitness enthusiasts that fell in love with this charming city, and for sure count the days in the calendar, waiting for a renewed meeting over there.

As a Spaniard I feel particularly proud of this success and I send through these lines my best wishes of success for all of you, and I look forward very much to meeting everyone next May in the sunny Santa Susanna.

Wishing all success and enjoyment.

Welcome to Santa Susanna!!! Welcome to the healthy lifestyle city!!!

Your friend,


Dr. Rafael Santonja
EBFF President
