Big and small Crystal Globe

The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup is a ski jumping tournament held yearly by the International Ski Federation since 1979.

The rounds are hosted primarily in Europe, with regular stops in Japan and rarely in North America. These have been hosted in over 18 different countries around the world, such as Austria, Bosnia, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Russia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.[1][nb 1]

The lower competitive circuits include the second level FIS Ski Jumping Continental Cup, the third level FIS Cup, the FIS Race and the Alpen Cup.

Prize money[edit]

Total prize money for World Cup men's individual event is 71.800 Swiss francs, because FIS headquarters are in Switzerland. Every men's individual point is worth 100 CHF.

Scoring system[edit]

Each season consists of 25–30 competitions, usually two competitions on the same hill during a weekend. One competition consists of a qualifying round, first round and second round. The top 10 jumpers in FIS ranking qualify directly to the first round, while the rest of the jumpers fight for the remaining 40 spots. The top 30 men in the first round advance to the second round, which is held in reverse order, so the best jumper in the first round jumps last. The aggregate score in the first and second rounds determine the competition results. The top 30 are awarded World Cup points. The winner gets 100 points while number 30 receives 1 point. At team events only top 8 receive points.

Wins in this table for East Germany are counted together with Germany and wins for Czechoslovakia are counted together with Czech Republic. All of Yugoslavia's wins are currently lumped in with Slovenia, since the ski jumpers who won races for former Yugoslavia were all Slovenes from Slovenia (one of six Yugoslav Republics).

A total of 15 countries have a total 968 World Cup winners (men, women, men's team and mixed team), with 14 different countries winning men's races and 7 countries winning women's races.
