Allstar Alliance and Multi Vision Streaming Network (MVSN) have partnered to produce the 2020 Allstar Showdown, to be held on the weekend of the 28th/29th/30th August.
Allstar Alliance is bringing together the best athletes in Australia and New Zealand to compete over the course of a weekend for a massive prize pool in an exciting virtual competition where you can view all the action from home.
As the world has been forced into isolation, we have worked to bring athletes the opportunity to compete through a virtual broadcast.
Athletes will compete from their own gyms, whilst going head to head with other elite individuals. By partnering with MVSN, we can turn any gym in the country into a competition floor and bring an event to you that will satisfy the desire to watch high level competition that we are all missing.
This is an exciting opportunity for both the athletes and AllStars and we are excited to bring this technology to functional fitness in Australia.
