Competition Center

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for The Sims FreePlay
Last Updated:
The Competition Center is where you put all the hobbies and skills to a test to see if you can win fame and fortune in the arena!

Chances are this will be one of the latter structures you build in your town - and it will be very expensive to build! On the plus side though, assuming you have been actively working the hobbies and have at least one Sim who has mastered each, it will serve as an excellent destination for you to obtain bonus XP and wealth...

Each day will bring you a new Competition, and each Competition will require you to commit the Sim that is competing to a 24-hour Event.

An example of the Competitions is the Ghost Hunting Competition, which features the following prizes:

1st Place - Gold Medal - 3 LP Prize

2nd Place - Silver Medal - 1 LP Prize

3rd Place - Bronze Medal - $1000 + 1000 XP

4th Place - Steel Medal - $500 + 500 XP

Each day will feature a randomly selected Competition, and once you select a Sim to compete, it starts a 24-hour timer, and your Sim will be unavailable to you until the timer runs out.

Top TIp

You'll stand the best chance of doing well in the competition if you use a sim that is experienced in the task of which the competition is. For example, if you have a Cooking competition, then you want to try to use your SIm which has the highest level Cooking Hobby.

If you finished the preparing for preteens quest and baked a birthday cake and practice the hobby you will get a preteen that can Compete in the competition center. The time really depends on how often you play and how much LP you have to complete actions faster. But as far as I know, the cake took me one day to bake. Hope this helps you.

It is prolly a random generator for peop,e who are asking that and you are not able to do it on another town so anything else is probably a glitch so just be aware it is a random generator so just think if you really want to put that sim away for 24 hours as it really does not matter as its random and sadly there is no glitch to be able to use a neighbours competition Center same as you can not use neighbours work areas and stuff like that
Hope this helped Smile

The game only lets you build ONE building at a time. After the "Competition center" is finished being built, you should be able to build the "Real estate agency".

My sim was in the highest level at fashion designing and got fourth place :(. Is it because he was not in a good mood. (He had everything low)

Why do I enter one competition but it finishes as another? I entered my level 5 cook in a cooking competition, and 24 hours later she'd come 4th in a Real Estate competition, this has happened twice!

The competition is 24 hours starting exactly at 12/9 depending on your time zone, so if you enter near the end of the 24 hours, it will put your Sim up against the new competition.

Yes, some competitions I've put my sims to are the following, "music person" fashion designer, diving, but there are more like ballet dancer, (I'm guessing,) karate, and one that's going on right now, high school student competition [spoiler][/spoiler]

If you use time cheats, time-based things take a long time to work. Unfortunately, if you change the time on your device at all, the game assumes that you are cheating, and punishes you by making you wait 10000 hours for time-based events.

I found out....You dont go into the one that holds competitions. You have to go into the one by the ice skating area on the other side of town. Its the building with three people in it right above the fire station.
