The Giants return to Manchester for the 4th time - this time for the newly created World Open title, alongside the prodigious World Deadlift Championships.

Strongmen from every corner of the globe will be invited to the AO Arena in Manchester to take on 5 gruelling tests of strength, starting with the blue riband event of Strongman: the World Deadlift Championships.

Who can forget that incredible night in 2016 when Eddie Hall turned the world of strongman on its head by becoming the first man in history to deadlift 500kg, breaking his own world record by a mind-blowing 35kg!

The World Deadlift Championships are not all about beating Thor's 501kg max deadlift record- in the 2017 edition fans were treated to a titanic battle between JF Caron and Konstantine Janashia, both reaching 5 reps of 400kg in 60 seconds. We'll be annoucing the format for this years event soon, so keep checking your socials for the annoucement! We’re all primed and ready to witness the next battle for the title of World Deadlift Champion!

When Giants Live last visited Manchester, fans were treated to a stunning performance from Wales’ Ben Brunning. Coming in as a last minute reserve with no time to prepare, the little known Strongman from Bala put the biggest names in Strongman to shame, finishing the night in a scarcely believable 2nd place, one place above 2020 World’s Strongest Man Oleksii Novikov.

You’ve seen it on TV, but a strongman show of this scale is best witnessed live, raw and up-close to all the roaring, shirt-ripping, world-record-breaking action! This show is much more than just jaw-dropping feats of strength and fiercely fought competition - this is LIVE strength sport and entertainment at its absolute biggest and best.

2021 is set to be another cracker - you can be assured it’s going to be one hell of a party! Prepare to be inspired and astonished in equal measure as the Giants of the world go head-to-head at the AO Arena, Manchester!

Shake the hands of GIANTS!
