How does promotion and relegation for the Series work?
Hong Kong and London are each staging two competitions as part of their respective events. Hong Kong is staging a 16-team competition for Series points and a 12-team World Series core-team pre-qualifer. Four of those 12 teams will go on to compete in the World Series core team qualifying final in London with Asian champions Hong Kong and the bottom three-ranked core teams after round 8 in Glasgow. The top 12 core team in London will play in a separate competition, held at the same time, for Series points towards their final tally. MORE DETAILS >>
