About this page and the events shown below
This page contains information about overseas events which may be of interest to Australian Fencers, and has been established so that athletes may be made aware of overseas events as soon as the AFF becomes formally aware of them, along with detailed information where possible.
The organisation of these events is completely beyond the control of the AFF, and athletes should be aware that these events may change location and timing, or may be cancelled, without those changes being advised to the AFF, or without that information appearing below. Equipment, uniform, weapons control, uniform marking, and many other things vary from country to country, and vary from Australian events. Many countries separate their medal ceremonies from their event running, and sometimes they may occur in different places. Costs vary. Each event below may have specific pre-requisites relating to entry. These may be qualification tournaments, host country membership or affiliation, host country club membership, special age or gender requirements, FIE licencing, etc.
As such, the information here is presented on an “as is” basis, and it is the athlete’s responsibility to confirm all details with the host organisation or nation. It is not the responsibility of the AFF or National Coaches to organise or co-ordinate entry or information relating to any of the competitions below, unless otherwise specified.
Athletes should also note that no ranking points are available for any of the events below under the Australian Selection Policy (see Documents and Policies, AFF Selection Policy - click here) unless specified, or unless identified in Appendix A of the Selection Policy. Where an athlete wishes to obtain ranking points for an event where points would otherwise not be awarded, they should refer to the appropriate section (C4.5 / J4.5 / etc.) of the Selection Policy for the relevant process and time frame.
Under the AFF's Selection Policy, athletes may apply for the award of ranking points for Category D or E events which fall outside those specifically mentioned in Appendix A. These applications may (only) be made under the process identified in the Operational Protocol found in the Documents and Policies section of this website (click here ).
The following overseas events have been allocated ranking points as specified in Appendix A of the Selection Policy, with the relevant scaling factors that appear to apply. Ranking points will be allocated in each relevant age category and only for the specified weapon, with a multiplier of the equivalent age category for the Oceania Championships (held outside Australia).

The schedule for the European Fencing Ciruit (Cadet / Under-23) and FIE Junior World Cups can be found on the Euro Fencing web site (www.eurofencing.info).
Please note that entry into events on the European Fencing Circuit (Cadets / Under-23s) requires a registration - similar to an FIE licence - for each year. Each registration allows entry into multiple EFC events. Registrations may only be done by the AFF on behalf of fencers, and there is a cost (see this web site - Documents and Policies / Fees and Charges).
EFC registrations may be obtained only through the AFF Portal, and are separate to FIE licences.
