All 64 locations around the globe which have been hosting world cup events for men (57) and ladies (20) at least one time in the history of this competition. Pyeongchang is the next new upcoming host in 2017.
Only individual results are included and no team events. Ranked as best combination of all: world cup overall; olympic, nordic/ski flying world championships titles and medals; four hills tournaments; ski flying titles; world cup wins and podiums; world records. Because the competitions, rules and world cup points are distributed in the same way, the scoring system table is copied from ski database which is used for alpine skiing super ranking. Four Hills Tournament titls, world records and Ski Flying World Championships are newly added.
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.
*This additional title was awarded five times from 1996 to 2000 for the best individual normal and large hill results only, not
including ski flying. The winner thus received a smaller version of the Crystal Globe trophy. It must be noted that this title
was distinct from the overall World Cup, which included ski flying results.
Torbjørn Yggeseth was a founder and a leader of this competition for the first 13 seasons. A new function called Race Director was introduced by International Ski Federation in 1992/93 with its first president Walter Hofer. Before that season this function didn't exist. In the premiere Ladies 2011/12 World Cup season Chika Yoshida was entitled as World Cup Coordinator, but since the season 2012/13 Yoshida is called Race Director.
