The competitor entry fee is $5 dollars for CNMI Weightlifting members and $20 for nonmembers.

Due to the issues with the Covid pandemic this will be the first locally organized weightlifting event since the successful inaugural Northern Marianas Cup held in February 2020.

Last year's event saw 15 men and two women compete for 14 medals in seven weight classes. CNMI Weightlifting is anticipating an even larger event this year, according to the federation president, John Davis.

Entry forms for Marianas Cup 2021 can be picked up at the Latte Built Fitness Center in Susupe and Gold's Gym in Garapan. Entry forms and fees must be submitted no later than close of business on 26 February 2021. Weigh-in is currently scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the multi-purpose center; the weightlifting contest starts at 10 a.m.

The public is reminded that all CNMI Covid-19 Task Force measures and directives to deter the spread of Covid 19 will be in effect.
