Rogue Invitational 2020 Live Stream
There’s likely going to be a live stream again in 2020 for the Rogue Invitational – just like there was for 2019.
Having said that – it’s too soon to provide details.
For 2019, the live stream was available via YouTube or the Rogue Fitness web site.
We’ll include further details here as soon as they are available.
There’s lots of interest in this event because it is shaping up to be one of the best CrossFit sanctioned events – with coverage that equals or bests the annual CrossFit Games.
For 2019, CBS Sports also broadcast the event – but only after it was long over.
We’d expect the same this year. Your best bet to see all the action is to get tickets, or to watch the live stream on YouTube.
