License options

We would like to welcome you to IFBB Netherlands. The membership of the IFBB-Nederland (N.B.B.F.) as it was before has now been replaced by a so-called competition license that gives access to participation in contests but also in international IFBB events such as the various Diamond Cup events. So you need to buy a ‘competition license’ if you want to participate in one of our competitions. It also allows you to participate in IFBB international competitions (if highly qualified) or purchase an ‘official license’ if you are an official or jury.

Everyone can get a license; young and old, male and female, beginner and advanced contestants. There are no age limits. There are however, many categories / classes in which various groups are divided on the basis of gender, age, height, weight and experience. This way there is no unfair competition during contests and you can always grow to a higher level.

With a competition license from the IFBB Netherlands you are automatically a member of the worldwide IFBB. This means that you can participate in international IFBB contests (provided you finish high enough in Dutch contests).

* ‘Official License’ is only for judges and officials!
