I am heading to the olympia for the first time this year. Which night is better for the show, fri or sat? And what's the difference between the nights? Thanks in advance

Well ticket prices for the Olympia are expensive as hell. I understand the want to just go to one night. The expo is cheap but the actual competition is expensive.

OP you should probably go to pre-judging to see all the guys plus the lineups. The finals will be routines, the top 6 and the awards announcements.

I would definitely go to the finals over judging. Yes, the judging may be the "important" part of the contest but the finals is where all the excitement and spectacle is. It's a much bigger experience overall. When they get down to the final two, and Bob C. gives his "the next name you hear is Mr. Olympia" speech, it really is a tense and exciting moment that isn't matched at any other contest.

been to two olympia finals. their cool, but i wouldnt spend $ on it again. 100$ per seat and the seats a far away. unless you pay good $ for close seats, you wont really get the value out of it. expo is the only real cost effective thing. if i were to pick PJ or finals, id pick PJ next time for sure. ill be goin to O this year again, but only to the expo.

Well since the finals only happen one night, where is the other option coming from :). Ha.

Serious note, I would take the advice of the people that have been. But it would be cool to see a Mr. O crowned.

I have been to the Olympia probably 7 or 8 times. And there is far more to the experience than simply having a good view of the athletes. It's all about being there when history could be made. Suppose Jay is dethroned: you will forever be able to say "I was there." When Jay won his first Sandow, it was crazy. If you are any kind of bodybuilding fan, you can't help but get caught up in the excitement. When Jay lost his Sandow, it was crazy. Whwen Jay won his Sandow back, it was crazy. You can't capture that experience with an online stream from your hotel room.

Yes, tickets are expensive. So skip a few costly casino meals and eat cheap instead to save some money. Olympia Finals are worth it.
