The Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final is an international, senior-level figure skating competition. It is the culmination of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating series. Skaters compete in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The competition was titled the Champions Series Final until 1998. Its name is often shortened to Grand Prix Final and abbreviated as GPF. While not an ISU Championship, the Grand Prix Final has been considered by the ISU itself to be the second most important competition (after the World Championships) in a season,[1] ahead of the European Championships and the Four Continents Championships.

The Grand Prix Final is the culmination of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating series, which consists of the Skate America, Skate Canada International, Trophée Eric Bompard, Cup of China, Cup of Russia, and NHK Trophy competitions. Skaters earn points according to placement on the Grand Prix series. The top six skaters or teams from each discipline compete in the Final.

The rules for the final have varied from year to year. In recent years, the skaters perform the short program (original dance for ice dancers) in reverse order of their rankings, so the top scorer in the Grand Prix series skates last. The skating order for the long program (free dance for ice dancers) is the reverse order of their placement in the short program or short dance, unlike other competitions where start orders are determined by a random draw. The Grand Prix Final omitted the compulsory dance segment.
