URC2021 Registration Questions
Is there a registration fee? Yes, there is an initial application fee of $38 (USD), which will be payable online (the application fee has been reduced for 2021).  Teams that are selected to attend the URC2021 Finals following the System Acceptance Review will be required to pay a subsequent registration fee (the fee amount will be determined in early 2021).
 
Are international teams permitted? Yes, with the exception of countries facing certain sanctions with the United States that would prevent URC registration and participation. 
 
When will registration close? Consistent with Section 1.a.i of the rules, teams must register no later than October 28, 2020. There will be no exceptions granted.
 
Should we start work on our systems before we register?  Yes - you should start as soon as possible!  Uncertain where to begin?  Read our advice page!
 
Is there a limit to the number of teams that can register for URC2021?  No; however there is a competitive down-selection process that is outlined in Section 1.a of the rules.  We anticipate that 36 teams will pass the System Acceptance Review and be invited to attend URC2021.
