From 1 February 2016, the AFF will commence paying for Australian entries for the Team events held concurrently with FIE Senior World Cups and Junior World Cups.  These fees are set by the FIE and are 400 Euros (Senior) and 150 Euros (Junior) per Team.  Previously, these fees needed to be paid for by individual fencers.
In early 2015, it was agreed by the State Associations to levy athletes attending overseas events a nominating fee ($50 per event) which would then contribute to a pool of funds which would then be used to pay for the Australian Team event entries.  Recent changes to the AFF's Selection Policy have now facilitated this process.
The revised overseas (FIE / EFC) event entry process is now available, and is documented on the Competitions / FAQs web page (click here).
