“Again it will be a very busy year for the MHP Strongman Champions League, where we will have 16 stages and a few other independent competitions.
“The calendar is not filled in totally yet, but we have the feeling that we are very full already.
“Most important, of course, will be our SCL series , and we are looking forward to seeing who will be the 7th world champion in SCL, after Zydrunas Savickas (2 times), Andrus Murumets, Terry Hollands , Ervin Katona and the latest world champion, Krzysztof Radzikowski from Poland.
“We have reserved more than a half million USD ($500,000) for flights, hotels and prize money in the 2014 season.
“The absolute top athletes around the world will compete with us, with space always for newcomers and new champions.
“Special events, new equipment and new venues will be seen, and all episodes will be televised and broadcast in 89 countries.
“All these ingredients together will guarantee absolutely the highest standard worldwide in our beloved strongman sport.
“We wish everybody a fantastic strongman season,” said Mostert.
