COMPETITION FORMULA

The qualification rounds on Saturday consist of four rounds of poules and a preliminary direct elimination. No fencer is eliminated until after the last round of poules. The winners of each of the poules in round two, three or four are directly qualified for next day’s competition, as well as those who qualifies from the DE round that completes the first day. The ranking of the fencers for the second day will be made according to what stage in the competition the fencer has qualified for the second day. Approximately half of the number of the participating fencers will be qualified for Sunday’s DE, which will be fenced with repêchage.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
FIE rules and the Swedish Fencing Federation rules will apply. Exceptions made are that FIE blades are not mandatory and there is no need for an FIE license. However, we do require that all fencers are registered with their national fencing federation.

REFEREES

We urge the participating Nordic fencing clubs to make competent referees available to the directoire technique throughout the competition. Referees from other countries are also most welcome. In the fi rst rounds of poules the fencers may, if necessary, act as referees.

Background and History

Eugène Fillol As a maître d'armes at FFF between the years 1901 and 1914, Maître Eugène Fillol was one of the driving forces behind the creation of modern fencing in Sweden. When he left Sweden to defend his country in World War One, he never left his position as maître d'armes. Sadly, he never returned to FFF as he gave his life for France.

Before leaving Sweden he instituted a challenger's prize for FFF to be won at the club's internal 3 days championship. The magnificent statue he donated has been cared for by FFF and its members throughout the years. It is now reinstated as a challenge prize, this time for the competition that bears his name. Each year's winners will have their names engraved on a silver plaque on the base.
