Battle of the Year is the premier B-Boying event in the world and is frequently referred to as the "World Cup of B-Boying" or the "B-Boy Olympics." As in the Olympics and the World Cup, B-Boy crews from the around the world qualify for this electrifying event by winning regional Battle of the Year tournaments which are held annually from May through September. Last year, on October 20, 2007, in front of 12,000 spectators, fourteen international crews represented their country as they battled for first place. In 1990, Thomas Hergenroether organized the first International Breakdance Cup, the forerunner to Battle of the Year. Nine crews participated in this inaugural competition in front of an audience of 400. With each year, the event, its audience, and the competing teams grew and by 1998, it had developed into the Battle of the Year and had outgrown its previous event locations. Eighteen years after its origination, Battle of the Year is recognized worldwide as the crème de la crème B-Boy event and is projecting a spectator turn out of more than 13,000 for this year in Braunschweig, Germany. This is a 2xDVD package and includes the two semifinal competitions, the final battle, more than 14 B-Boy crews' performances, more than 5 hours of video, and all kinds of juicy extras.
