Welcome to the 2020 SCA World Championship!

SCA World Championship Qualification Process

There are two ways to qualify for the SCA World Championship; either by winning an SCA Golden Ticket or an At Large Bid.  The SCA season and points chase end on December 31st at midnight.  Any event held starting January 1st, 2021 will be a qualifier for the 2021 SCA World Championship held in 2022.

SCA Golden Ticket: 

  • The winner of every SCA sanctioned event will be invited to the SCA World Championship. If the winner of the event is not a member at the time of their win, he/she will have until the following Monday at 8AM to become a member. If the winner does not become a member, the invitation will roll down to the highest placing member (no lower than tenth place).
  • Should the winner already be qualified, the invitation will roll down to the highest placing member (no lower than tenth place).
  • If there are no teams eligible for the invite, then the invite will become an “At Large Bid”.  
  • Cooks can only win one Golden Ticket per season.

At Large Bids:

  • The top ten in each point regions Point Chase (Europe, Australia, New Zealand) that are not already qualified with a Golden Ticket on January 1st, 2021 prior, will be awarded an “At Large Bid”. 
  • Other “At Large Bids” will be awarded to the next people in the points chase to replace a team that cannot attend the SCA World Championship.

Carryover Rules:

  • At Large Bids are only good for the same season only, no carryover to following year.
