Contest License options

We would like to welcome you to the IFBB Netherlands/NBBF. You must purchase a ‘contest license’ if you wish to participate in one of our competitions. A contest license is valid for one full calendar year (from January 1 to December 31) and must therefore be renewed annually.

Anyone can apply for a contest license; young or old, man or woman, beginner or advanced. So there are no age limits. However, there are 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 contest license from IFBB Netherlands/NBBF you can also participate in European and international worldwide competitions of the IFBB (world) if you finish high enough in Dutch competitions.

You also need a ‘contest book’ in which your data is recorded per competition. This is a one-time purchase, because you can use the same booklet for years. You should therefore take this booklet with you to every contest in which you participate.

Only recognized ‘officials’ are required to purchase an ‘official license’.

Mind! Your contest license will not be sent to you, but it will be ready for you at the next contest you participate in.
