IFCA World Ranking System for Slalom

The International Funboard Class Association (IFCA) introduces a World Ranking System for Slalom to provide a clear structure for the competitors, organizers, media and sponsors. This ranking should be used to prepare the first seeding of a next event.

To be included in the IFCA World Ranking an event has to fulfil minimum requirements:

  • The IFCA Class Rules are applied.
  • The ISAF RRS (Windsurfing Edition) are applied.
  • The event is open to every competitor (no obligatory additional membership on top of the entry fee).
  • An IFCA appointed observer is on site to ensure that all requirements are met. Licensed tour organizers can act as IFCA observers.
  • A minimum prize money of EUR 15.000,- (EUR 10.000,- at combined events) has to be offered.
  • Every paid up national IFCA member association may request IFCA executive to add one open (inter-) national event to count for the IFCA World Ranking. For these events the minimum prize money is not obligatory.

Ranking Points:

Every event that counts for the IFCA World Ranking has a certain factor that transforms into the ranking points. The factor shall be announced in the official IFCA World Ranking Events Calendar and the NoR for an event.

  • An event that offers the minimum requirements has a factor of 1,00. This means that the winner will get 100 ranking points, the second 99 ranking points etc.
  • A national open events counting for the IFCA World Ranking has a factor of 0,50.
  • Events can receive a bonus on top of the factor if they offer more than the minimum requirements:

    • IFCA World Championships have a bonus of 0.30 - Factor 1,30
    • IFCA Continental Championships have a bonus of 0.10 - Factor 1,10
    • IFCA Junior, Youth and Masters events will count for 50%
    • If the prize money is EUR 20.000 or more (15.000 at combined events) the event has a bonus of 0.05 - Factor 1,05
    • If the prize money is EUR 30.000 or more (20.000 at combined events) the event has a bonus of 0.10 - Factor 1,10
    • If the prize money is EUR 40.000 or more (25.000 at combined events) the event has a bonus of 0.15 - Factor 1,15
    • World, Continental and one prize money bonuses can be combined. For example: An IFCA World Championship with EUR 30.000 prize money has a factor of: 1.00 (base) + 0.30 (IFCA World Championship) + 0.10 (EUR 30.000 prize money) = 1,40.

Every competitor can compete in as many events as he wants. The actual ranking position will be based on the sum of the best 3 ranking points over the last 24 months. The ranking list is a continuous system. After 24 months the earned points are deleted.
