Each meeting has the option to add additional non-tour (non-scoring) disciplines to their programme. These will be announced in the next months.
For each IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting, points are allocated to the top four athletes in each IAAF World Indoor Tour discipline as follows:
1st: 10 points
Any athlete who breaks a world record will be awarded three bonus points in addition to the points they will receive as a result of their finishing position.
An athlete can participate in as many events as chosen within the meetings listed, but only the best three results count towards their ranking. The winner of the IAAF World Indoor Tour must have competed in at least two meetings.
The individual overall winner of each event will receive US$20,000 prize money and automatically qualify for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 by wild card. The Member Federation of the IAAF World Indoor Tour winner will have the ultimate authority to enter the athlete or not, based on its own criteria or qualification system.
