FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I would like to shoot the match. Can you give me a slot?
No. You must apply for a slot from the Regional Director of your Region of residence.
The schedule for the Main Match is not convenient for me. Can I shoot the Pre-Match?
No. The Pre-Match is reserved exclusively for Match Officials, Regional Directors, IPSC Patrons and Match Sponsors. Additionally, if you’re a member of an official Regional Team, you must shoot with the rest of your team members in the same squad in the Main Match.
Where can I obtain information about being a Match Sponsor?
I am a Regional Director but I cannot shoot the Pre-Match. Can I transfer my slot to another party from my Region?
No. The Regional Director’s slot is not transferable.
Unfortunately I must withdraw from the match. Can I transfer my slot to someone else?
No. You must surrender your slot to your Regional Director, who is the only person authorised to reallocate that slot within your Region.
If nobody else in my Region is able to use my slot, can my slot be given or sold to a competitor in another Region?
No. If your Regional Director is unable to find another competitor from your Region to replace you, the slot must be returned to the Match Organisers.
