Not only will there be a new prize money system, but the world federation IBU has also revised the scoring system. In addition, numerous professionals will compete with new names
In the new season, the fight for the overall World Cup will be even more interesting, as numerous changes have been decided by the Executive Committee.
From now on, all results in the World Cup will count. Previously, the two worst results of the season were eliminated. In addition, from now on, no World Cup points will be awarded at the World Championships.
In addition, the points allocation will be adjusted. For a World Cup victory, the professionals will now receive 90 points instead of 60. With this, the IBU wants to give athletes who miss races due to injury a better chance that they can still win the overall World Cup.

Accordingly, the winner or the winner earns 15,000 euros. Second place will still receive 12,000 euros, while there will be 9,000 euros for bronze. At the 2023 World Championships in Oberhof, the bonuses for the podium are 25,000, 19,000, and 14,000 euros.
More prize money can be earned by the relays at the World Championships. In the races with four professionals, 30,000 euros will be proclaimed for the victory, while in the single-mixed relay there is a maximum of 15,000 euros to be earned.
The world federation has already criticized the consultation draft. In an interview with local radio station NRK, Norwegian federation president Christian Gedde-Dahl paints a dire scenario: “Our fear is that the consequences of the measures will be so great that our 163 clubs will not be able to cope financially with this introduction within five years and will therefore have to reduce their activities.”
Postponed, meanwhile, is the ban on fluorine wax. The IBU says the reason is that they want to refine the testing procedure and test fluorine-free waxes more intensively. Thus, the ban has been postponed for the third time.
