Now that the countdown to the start of the 2024 contest season is officially underway, bodybuilding fans across the globe are starting to get their first glimpse at what’s in store for the early part of the schedule, which includes a return of the Arnold Classic UK, who released their first official rosters last week.
Despite deciding not to hold this event for the 2023 contest season, it looks like the Arnold Sports Team is dedicated to making sure this year’s show pulls out all the stops, as evidenced by the over $650,000 in prize money on the line, which makes this the largest total purse in the history of the contest.
As expected, the Men’s Open division is loaded with top tier talent; including 2022 Mr. Olympia Hadi Choopan, 2023 Arnold Classic champ Samson Dauda, and the reigning Arnold UK king, Andrew Jacked, all of whom will be seeing each other onstage for the second time in the early part of the season here.
