The most common format of the event has been a series of three Grand Prix, followed by a Grand Final.

For the series, the 32 best positioned in the world ranking in the eight Olympic categories are invited.

In addition, 5,000, 3,000 and 1,000 dollars are awarded to the first, second and third place winners.

The first Grand Prix in 2013, and the 2016 event, were single stage competitions, while the 2018 edition had a fourth Grand Prix stage before the Grand Final.

The original Grand Prix was held in Manchester, England, recognizing the popularity of the sport in the United Kingdom, and Manchester remains the most visited location, with five Grand Prix events, while the United Kingdom is also the most visited country, with six events.

Russia, Mexico and Italy have also hosted multiple events.

The 2020 event was going to be a one-off event in Cancun, but was canceled due to the Covid pandemic, while the 2021 event was abandoned for the same reason, without being officially arranged.

The event returned to Rome for an eighth season in 2022.

In 2023, just a year before the Olympics we have seen Rome, Paris and Taiyuan.

In December (1-3), the Grand Prix Final is scheduled to take place in Manchester Arena, the headquarters of Big events.
