The Archery World Cup is a competition, started in 2006, organized by the World Archery Federation, where the archers compete in four different stages in four different countries and the best eight archers of each category (from 2010, four archers during 2006-09) advance to an additional stage to contest the Archery World Cup Final. This form of competition was introduced following the success of the 2003 World Archery Championships in New York and the 2004 Summer Olympics with the intent of making the sport more popular and attractive to spectators, with the matches being held in 'spectacular' locations and the final matches being broadcast online.[1] It has received plaudits for its innovative approach to the sport, raising its profile and reach.[2][3]

From 2013, the World Cup is broadcast live on Eurosport.[4] It carries sponsorship from Kia and Longines, which supports the annual Longines Prize of Precision for archery, for the "best male and female athletes that master bow and arrow through concentration, balance, accuracy, and skill".[5]

In the World Cup Finals the prize money for the individual competitions in 2018 was:[6]

  • 2nd place: 10,000 CHF
  • 3rd place: 5,000 CHF

For each individual World Cup stage, the prize money offered for individual competitions in 2013 was:
