*DI, Inc. has slightly adjusted these dates since their announcement in August.

Global Finals is the culminating Challenge Experience tournament for DI teams that advance through their Regional and Affiliate Tournaments around the world.

Cost: The registration fee for Globals 2023 is $5,500 per team. The deposit to secure a team’s registraton is $2,000, due by April 12, 2023.

Registration: Registration for Globals will be open from March 1 to April 12, 2023. Teams that qualify at tournaments in their Affiliates are guaranteed a spot.

Waitlist: Beginning January 15, all teams will be able to sign up for the Global waitlist. The waitlist is intended to allow teams to declare their interest in attending Global Finals even if they do not qualify through tournaments in their Affiliate. Waitlist teams are not guaranteed a spot at Global Finals until they receive an invitation from DI HQ.

Waitlist teams will receive an invitation based on availability. A team’s Challenge and level will be contributing factors to when/if they receive an invitation. Invitations will be issued
