Qualification Standards

A PDGA membership is needed, but it doesn't have to be active when registering to the event. During the event all players must have a current PDGA membership and Finnish players must also be SFL members (includes PDGA membership). 

Being an amateur tournament there are divisional rating limits. 

Registration takes place in Disc Golf Metrix and each player must have a Metrix account to register. Creating a Metrix account and using Metrix is free. Create an account here. (Players should make sure that their PDGA number is correct. Metrix checks the rating from the PDGA automatically when a player registers for an event.)

If you don’t already have a metrix account, you should create one well before registration starts. Field can fill up rather quickly. 

Entry Fees

Entry fee for all divisions is 99€ (inc. 24% VAT). Each player will receive a player pack, which is at least 60€ in value. 

Entry fees must be paid in Spin 18’s online store by purchasing the "European Amateur Open 2022 Entry Fee" product. (not available yet) 

Check the payment deadlines from the registration phases & schedules below.

Players should not pay the entry fee unless they have a spot in the event. Every player must check their registration status once they have registered. Players should not pay the entry fee if they're on the waiting list. More info about the waiting list below.
