For the first time in the contest’s storied 46-year history, the 2023 World’s Strongest Man (WSM) will take place in South Carolina. But unless you’re on the ground in Myrtle Beach from April 19-23, you won’t be able to watch the 2023 WSM live. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the action.
During the 2022 contest, WSM produced a live show, Backstage Live! Presented by The Beard Struggle, hosted by 15-time WSM competitor Terry Hollands. While that show won’t take place in 2023, you can follow the World’s Strongest Man on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for behind-the-scenes interviews and footage from the event.

While fans can attend the in-person event and Fan Festival for free, you’ll have to wait to watch the full competition if you’re not on location for the action. For those in the United States, the 2023 WSM will tentatively air beginning on May 28 on the CBS Sports Network. Fans in the UK will have to wait even longer for the contest to air in December on Channel 5.
