Seeding of the teams

The seeding of weapon teams shall be based on two criteria:

  • 1st criterion – the overall rankings of the weapon team at the immediately previous EVF Team Championships.
  • 2nd criterion – for those weapon teams that did not participate in the immediately previous EVF Team Championships the seeding is determined by adding together the ranking points of the three best ranked fencers on the current EVF ranking list without taking into consideration age category. For this criterion, the weapon team with the highest cumulative ranking points will be the best seeded.

The 1st criterion will always take precedence over the 2nd criterion.
