Below is a list of all current upcoming  2020 BPU and ABPU, WPC and AWPC events – keep checking back for regular updates: Please remember and be aware that w do not operate with closing dates for our qualifiers. Due to the level of demand in the past, we have ended up with massive over subscription to competitions when using a closing dat which is no good for the lifters. Therefore this federation operates on a system that we will give you time to be aware when a qualifier is going live and then the entries will close once full. It is your responsibility to keep checking on the web site and the federation Facebook page for these and we will not accept any responsibility if you miss it. All we can do is to give you the information, it is then up to you. If you miss it, all you have to do is to email us and if we can fit you in we will certainly try to. This does NOT APPLY TO THE BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS, EUROPEAN OR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.  

Please note you can get additional information about the international competitions from the World Powerlifting Congress Web site which list both the WPC and AWPC International competition: http://www.worldpowerliftingcongress.com

If you have to leave early then you need to be aware what position you came. Please speak to us on a break and we will give you our medal – if you ask us what position you came before the end of the competition during a flight, we would have to stop the entire competition to look at your flight and see your placing which I am am sure you wouldnt want anyone else doing to you.
