Benjamin Banks, SBD Apparel’s CEO and founder, said: “We are excited to announce this new partnership with the IPF, which will see us celebrate the world’s strongest powerlifters in a new category of IPF event. It has long been our aim to elevate the sport of powerlifting to new heights, and we look forward to welcoming lifters and fans for what we expect to be a spectacular event next March.”

I think we can all agree this will be a spectacle not to miss, and will be in Sheffield next March!! Look out for our next edition in February for more information and exclusive interviews with lifters.
