UFO European Cup and World Cup Finals

The UFO World Cup Final is the pinnacle of disc-dog competition in our universe. The event is only open to the top dogs in the world-they most compete all year long to earn a spot in this prestigious event.
To qualify for the finals, a team must earn 90 World Cup points in the regular season. This total computed by adding the points from the teams' 2 highest finishes at Majors, added to their 2 highest finishes at Local events. Teams can attend more than 2 of each of these events, of course, to try to improve their finishes. The final UFO Major, which is typically the day before the UFO Finals, is the last chance to earn World Cup points. At the end of this event, the official points tally will be computed, and all teams with 90 World Cup points are eligible to compete in the World Cup Finals.
The World Cup Finals are a "Winner Take All" championship. The Champions are determined by the result of the finals event. The World Cup points determine eligibility to compete in the final, but play no part in determining the UFO World Cup Champion. The winner of the World Cup Final is the World Cup Champion.
