2024 NHK Trophy is the fourth event of the 2024-25 ISU Grand Prix series and is scheduled to take place November 8-10, 2024, in Tokyo, Japan. The ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series consists of six international senior invitational events and culminates with the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final in December.

Competitors collect points in their individual Grand Prix events towards the qualification for the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. Only the top six skaters/teams in each discipline can qualify for the Final.

Skaters are seeded and invited to the six Grand Prix of Figure Skating events based on the results obtained at the 2024 ISU World Figure Skating Championships. Skaters/teams who have placed first through sixth in each of the four categories are seeded and assigned to two events. Skaters/teams who have placed seventh through 12th at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships are selected for two ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating events. Skaters with a top 24 Season Best Scores (from the 2023-24 season), as well as those placed in the top 24 of the ISU World Standings, can also be invited.

In order for a skater/team to be eligible to compete at an ISU Grand Prix event, a minimum total score must have been achieved in the 2023-24 or current 2024-25 season in an ISU event (Grand Prix, Junior Grand Prix, Championships) or a Challenger Series event. Exceptions apply to host country skaters, previously ranked skaters or split ranked couples who return with new partners.

Anyone knows what day is the ladies events. I might go in person but only interested in watching the ladies.
Sales of tickets start July 12, let's see if I can get arena SS ticket, if not sold out 1 second after sales start.

Since the competition itself is only Friday-Saturday (Sunday is only for the gala), all disciplines will have their SP/RD on Friday and their FS/FD on Saturday. So if you only want to watch the women's SP, you could just go on Friday, or you could just go on Saturday if you only want to see the women's FS. But if you want to see both parts of the women's event, you'll need tickets for both Friday and Saturday.

Thank you! Saturday it is, then, if I can be fast enough to get a arena SS ticket when they go on sale.

The ticket sales information for overseas attendants for the NHK Trophy has been released.
Ooh, this is the same Tixplus service that was used for the world championships in 2023! If this utilizes the same type of ticket lottery system that was used back then, I'd be happy to share what I recall about the ticket-buying process. 🙂
