There is one admin entry fee of £15 for the following international competitions where BF administrates entries:
Nominated U20 (Junior) World Cups and all European & World Championships except Veterans are considered ‘managed’ GBR trips, and there are additional services and, therefore, charges associated.
For U17 (Cadet) Nominated and Development EFCs and FIE events, BF organises (and pays for) referees.
