Standard Duration of an IFSC World Cup depends to the number of disciplines. Generally:
The IFSC Sport Department is the organism in charge to propose a standard schedule to the Event Organiser. Factors as venue indoor/outdoor, side events, size of the walls may impact on the duration expressed above. The IFSC Schedule shall be sent to the IFSC (refer to Global Timeline) for approval.
No more than 2 rounds of competition per category shall be organised in the same day. The IFSC events should be run between 9.00 and 23.00 of each day of competition.
If the event organiser wishes to use the competition boulders/routes after the end of the finals, the signs (START, TOP, ZONE, etc.) should be removed. The Event Organiser should inform the IFSC about any meetings between different stakeholders (coaches, NFs, etc.) taking place during the IFSC event
