2018 Challenger Series

2018 Challenger Series

Dates and venues for the 2018 Challenger Series have been announced. This Series, introduced in the 2014-2015 season, offers all senior-level skaters the opportunity to compete on a number of international stages. For those not seeded for Grand Prix assignments, these events offer skaters the advantage of testing their skills against some of the best, and earn World Standing Points in the process.

There are two new competitions on the roster for next season. The Asian Open Figure Skating Trophy, which had been an ASU International Figure Skating competition since 2007, is now part of the Challenger Series. The Inge Solar Memorial–Alpen Trophy will replace the Cup of Tyrol Innsbruck.
