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 and travel discounts. Below are just the highlights of the amazing experience your team will have when attending Global Finals 2020!

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 state-of-the-art Sprint Center and use the same technology and equipment used by many of today’s top touring artists.

Team Ticketing: Tickets will be provided to each registered team member (7 maximum) and each registered team manager (3 maximum) as indicated during the Global Finals online registration process. These tickets will be included in the onsite team registration packet. Please check to make sure that you have properly identified your Team Members and Team Managers prior to the close of online registration on May 1.

Supporter Ticketing: We expect that most credentialed supporters will be able to sit in non-team seating (upper level) of the Sprint Center, but cannot guarantee based on limited capacity. Tickets for credentialed supporters may be picked up by the Team Manager during onsite team registration at Municipal Arena. 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.

Destination Imagination considers it a priority to ensure that teams are not excluded from participation in Global Finals due to financial constraints. Need-based financial assistance will be available on an application basis. Last year, Destination Imagination awarded nearly $130,000 in financial support to Global Finals-bound teams, and every team who applied for financial assistance was awarded part of this gift. In 2020, Destination Imagination is making an initial commitment of $250,000 to support need-based financial assistance for teams. Other fundraising initiatives will help develop additional support through the spring. Stay tuned for more information regarding need-based financial support in the fall/winter.
