Welcome to the 2019 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.

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 points that are not already qualified with a Golden Ticket 30 days prior to SCA World Championship (September 4th) in the USA and 60 days prior for regional international points chases, will be awarded an “At Large Bid”. 
  • 30 days prior in US points chase and 60 days prior in all international point’s chases, “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:

  • A Golden Ticket may only be carried over to the next year if it is won 30 days prior to the Championship in the United States or 60 days prior in SCA International events.
  • At Large Bids are only good for the same season, no carryover to following year.
