Official Strongman Games European Championships will re-open Millmoor stadium in Rotherham on Sunday, August 4, 2019

The retired former World’s Strongest Man and the face of strongman – who is now set for a Hollywood film and TV career – will meet fans as a special guest and pundit.

It will be held at the former Rotherham United ground on Sunday, August 4, from 10am.

BUY TICKETS: Tickets are £10 adult, £5 under-12s, £25 for a family ticket - two adults and two children – and can be bought on the day on the door, subject to availability, or in advance from SIV tickets online – CLICK HERE.

There is also ample car parking at the ground accessible from Masbrough Street at it’s junction with Coronation Bridge. Doors open 9am.

The strongman competition will be the first major public event at the stadium since the Millers left the ground 11 years ago and they now play across the road at their New York Stadium ground.

Dozens of budding strongmen and women, who have already qualified to take part, will compete in five key events – deadlift, log press, yoke, forward hold and sack loading race.

The top three in each category will earn their invite to the Official Strongman Games: World Championships.

Strongman legend Eddie 'The Beast' Hall

Eddie, aged 31, famously beat Game Of Throne’s giant Thor to become World’s Strongest Man 2017 after setting the deadlift world record the same year when he lifted a knee-crunching half a tonne – 500kg, or 79st – at the European Championships at Leeds First Direct Arena.

He is now a leading figure and pundit in the Giants Live organisation, run by Colin Bryce and Darren Sadler, which organises arena events and the official World’s Strongest Man tournament, itself a festive fortnight TV highlight watched by millions over Christmas and the New Year.

Eddie has been working on projects with the likes of his good pal Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Hollywood.

He said of the Official Strongman Games European Championships, coming to Rotherham for the first time: “This is going to be an amazing weekend. We'll be crowning no less than eight European champions – men and women – as well as the amateur open class winner.”

Eight European champions will be crowned with dozens of competitors taking part from 10am
