New classification system for international IFBT competitions

men podiumThe IFBT continues to eagerly adapt competitions and classification regulations to the suggestions by the afiliated federations and particularly to those suggestions by their players. On this subject, we should highlight a new classification system for international competitions as well as a new policy regarding the minimum sums in awards that classifying competitions are required to give.

The most important world circuit is the World Cup Tour (WCT) which gathers the championships hosted in the most important cities in the world. They were called G1 and will now be called WCT; they will be awarded with US$ 2.500 to 5.000.
Intercontinental championships are also to be organized as well as the international Open Series with two categories: Open-1 awarded with US $500 to $2499 and Open-2 with US $0 to $499.
It will also be possible to organize international championships for Advanced and Over & Under categories. All of them can earn points to enter the eight IFBT existing rankings.

The score table has also been changed with slightly new scores. An important change has been to limit the maximum number of classifying competitions to enter the ranking. Until 31st January, only the 15 best results obtained in competition over 18 months were counted. From now on, only the 8 best results over 18 months will be counted. This new classification system will be implemented in two stages: as from 1st February, the best 12 will be counted, and as from 1st July, the best 8.
