The IFOCE wishes its members, sponsors, fans and friends a very Happy New Year 2005. Without a doubt, 2004 was the greatest year ever in the history of competitive eating. The IFOCE sanctioned a record amount of contests, visited a number of new cities and facilitated tens of thousands of dollars in prizes, appearance fees and travel stipends for its eaters.
None of this would be possible without the tireless dedication that each and every IFOCE member displays on a day-to-day basis. We are thrilled to have formed relationships with a variety of new sponsors and venues, and look forward to continuing these associations in the future.
It seems that 2005 will be another momentous year for the sport of competitive eating and we look forward to it with great eagerness.
Stay happy! Stay healthy! Stay Hungry ®!
