Athlete Contributions
Based on the increased travel and administration costs (e.g. to cover the additional costs of COVID insurance, PCR or Lateral Flow testing) the financial contributions have been increased by £25 per person.

  • Team Manager/Coach Contribution: £65
  • Referee Contribution: £90.  Each Junior World Cup squad of 10 or more will require 2 referees (or a 1000 euro fine per missing referee – which could happen at the last minute eg if a referee tests positive for COVID). BF, through the ADP, will be subsidising the additional costs of fines/travel where required. Rules around referee quotas and fines can be found on the FIE website here, o.25 and o.31. 
  • Additional Coach: £0 (approx. £65 per head subsidy by BF when a coach is provided)
  • Accommodation: £50/night (normally a minimum of 2 nights, based on sharing) OR the single occupancy rate set by local organisers if required by local/FIE rules.
  • Administration: £10 (£20 per head subsidy by BF)

Athletes that breach BF Codes of Conduct risk becoming ineligible for future financial subsidies and may be required to refund any grants and subsidies.
