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 invitational events and the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final.

Following a decision of the ISU Council due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating events are primarily domestically run events with domestic Skaters and Skaters who train in the host country or respective geographical region.

The ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final that was to be held as an Olympic Test Event on December 10-13 has been postponed. The ISU, in consultation with all stakeholders and considering the pandemic developments, is evaluating the continuation of the 2020/21 season, in particular the re-scheduling possibilities for the important Olympic Test Events.

Due to the current situation, the usual selection criteria do not apply. The competitors will be invited according to the following principles: The top 6 Skaters/Couples from the ISU Grand Prix List are given priority to be selected for a Grand Prix event provided they reside/train in one of the Grand Prix Member countries, or have no travel restrictions to travel to a Grand Prix Member country in the nearby area. The top 7-12 Skaters (for Ladies and Men), Top 7-10 Couples (for Pair Skating and Ice Dance) from the Grand Prix List are given 2nd priority to be selected for a Grand Prix. The top 24 Season’s best and World Standings Skaters/Couples for season 2019/20, not included in the above will have 3rd priority for selection. The remaining entries will be from Skaters/Couples in the top 75 season’s best list from 2019/20 and up to two Skaters/Couples from the Organizing Grand Prix Member (off list). In case there are no available Skaters/Couples left in the top 75, the Organizing Grand Prix Member may invite any other Skater training in the Organizing Grand Prix Member’s country. 

The Grand Prix List was composed in the following ranking order: the top 6 Skaters as entered for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020 (listed in Season’s best order, in replacement of the usual World Figure Skating Championships results); top 7 to 12 Skaters as entered for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020 (listed in Season’s best order - 7 to 10 for Pair Skating and Ice Dance); “Come-back” Skaters/Couples; top 24 Skaters in the World Standings for 2019/20; top 24 Skaters in the Season’s best list for 2019/20; medalists from the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2020 and winners of the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final 2019/20; returning “split Couples” and top 25 to 75 in the Season’s best list for 2019/20.
