Team Pricing Model

The Global Finals event registration fee is team-based and includes unlimited credentials for supporters. Destination Imagination will provide additional resources to help you plan your trip, including group rates at selected hotel properties. Meals and lodging are not included in the registration fee. Kansas City offers incredible opportunities to design your perfect week and below are just the highlights of the amazing experience your team will have when attending Global Finals 2022!

Unlimited Credentials Per Team

Bring your cheer squad! The registration fee includes unlimited credentials for supporters.

The Ceremonies

The Welcome Ceremony and Closing Celebration will take place in the Municipal Arena.

Team Ticketing: Tickets will be provided to each registered team member (7 maximum per team) and each registered Team Manager (3 maximum per team) as indicated during the Global Finals online registration process. These tickets will be available to pickup in the Municipal lobby outside of registration. Please check to make sure that you have properly identified your team members and Team Managers prior to the close of online registration on April 13.

Supporter Ticketing: We expect that most credentialed supporters will be able to sit in non-team seating (upper level) of the Municipal Arena. Tickets for credentialed supporters may be picked up by the Team Manager during onsite team registration at Little Theatre. Limit one ticket for Welcome Ceremony and one ticket for Closing Celebration per credentialed supporter. Supporter credentials must be presented to receive tickets.

The goal is to ensure that team members and Team Managers get priority seating (lower level), while also accounting for chaperones and supporters (upper level).

Accessible seating is available, but may be located away from your Affiliate. Teams requesting accessible seating will be seated with their accessible member or Team Manager.

The Tournament

Compete with the best of the best in the Team and Instant Challenge Tournament. This is your team’s time to shine on the global stage!

We are so excited to be back in Kansas City for this year’s event. But most of all—we’re thrilled for the long-awaited opportunity to see firsthand how each of our teams solved their Challenge this season.

Prop Storage Exhibit Space

Collaborate with your team to fix, rebuild or add any final touches to your props, and then showcase what you’ve designed among all of your peers in an awe-inspiring Prop Storage exhibit space. Each team will have their own booth space and access to designated “garage” spaces to work on their props.
