I know there is a lot of confusion about the Arnold Classic Africa after the split between IFBB International and NPC/Pro League. After numerous meetings, it is decided and agreed by Arnold partnership that it is best that Arnold Classic Africa, is and will stay with IFBB International and IFBB Elite Pro League.
