This year’s Great Britain meeting was held in Birmingham, as Birmingham and Glasgow co-host the Indoor Grand Prix up until 2020.

Each of the six meetings has the option to add additional non-tour/non-scoring disciplines to their programmes.

Points will be allocated to the top four athletes in each IAAF World Indoor Tour discipline, with 10 points for first, seven points for second, five points for third and three points for fourth.

The overall winner of the IAAF World Indoor Tour will need to have competed in at least two meetings, with their best three results from the tour counting towards their ranking.

The individual overall winner of each event will receive US$20,000 prize money and will also automatically qualify for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 by wild card. The Member Federation of the IAAF World Indoor Tour winner will then decide whether to enter the athlete or not, based on its own criteria or qualification system.
