FMWC format states that each stage is held from Friday 00:01 AM (UTC+0) till Monday 11:59 PM (UTC+0). These 4 days are split into 2 sessions – the first 2 days and the last 2 days. Participants who after the previous Stage are ranked Top 30 in the world, Top 5 in each age group or Top 5 in each region, will have to complete the Stage during the first 2 days (e.g., Jan 27-28 for January Stage). All other participants will have to complete the Stage during the last 2 days (e.g., Jan 29-30 for January Stage).
