ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating

The ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series started in 1995 (previously known as the “ISU Champions Series”) and consists of six international senior events that culminate with the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. The Skaters are seeded and invited to the six Grand Prix of Figure Skating events based on the results achieved at the previous ISU World Figure Skating Championships. The top 12 Skaters/Couples are guaranteed two Grand Prix assignments. Medalists from the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships can also be selected provided they are age eligible and have moved up to the senior level. Competitors collect points in their Grand Prix events towards the qualification for the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. Only the top six Skaters/Couples in each discipline qualify for the Final.

Selection Criteria 2023/24

The Skaters are seeded and invited to the six Grand Prix of Figure Skating events based on the results obtained at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2023. Skaters/couples who have placed 1 to 6 in each of the four categories are seeded and assigned to two events. Skaters/ couples who have placed 7-12 at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships are selected for two ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating events, and skaters with a top 24 Season Best Scores (from the 2022/23 season) as well as those placed in the top 24 of the ISU World Standings can also be invited. The ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships medalists and Junior Grand Prix Final winners can also be selected provided they meet the senior age criteria, which must be at least 16 years old by July 1st 2023 according to decisions taken at the ISU 58th Congress 2022 (refer to the Age Limit FAQ and News and ISU Communication 2472 for more information).
