Spectators are always welcome at World Finals! Teams will be given a set number of tickets for their accompanying spectators to claim preferred seating, but there will be plenty of general seating available for anyone who wishes to watch team performances. There is no standing-room and all spectators must be seated, so there are technically capacity limits for each performance space. However, thanks to the convention center's size we anticipate that everyone should be able to view whichever performance they're excited to see!

Please note: Upon entering the convention center, all attendees will undergo an infrared temperature check and verify via health screening form that they have not felt signs of illness in the past 12 hours. (The health screening form will only be required on first arrival, not both days.) Upon clearance of these checks, attendees will receive a wristband indicating to volunteers and staff that they are clear to compete, spectate, judge, etc., and otherwise explore the event safely. Visitors must go through a temperature check each day of competition to receive that day's wristband. Those who can present their completed COVID-19 vaccination record cards will receive their wristband without temperature check.


All competition sites will feature double-doors which allow easy transportation of sets, props, etc. All teams will be competing on commercial carpeting EXCEPT for Problem 1, which will be on a hard-surfaced floor.

Diagrams/maps of competition sites will be shared as soon as they are available.

2021 World Finals souvenirs will be for sale at our on-site shop in the Orange County Convention Center and souvenirs are now available for order through our online shop! Any souvenir orders placed with a 2021 WF products will not begin to ship until June 4th 2021. Online orders CAN NOT be picked up during World Finals, they will be shipped to you.

How could we have an in-person World Finals and NOT have pin trading? It's a World Finals tradition that MUST be appreciated, included, and experienced. This year we'll have one designated space set up specifically for pin trading with tables and chairs placed at safe distances. Traders must be seated at one of the many tables in order to make trades and no standing around tables or grouping will be permitted. Traders may move from table to table to trade, when seats are available. There will be a limit set to the number of pin traders in the space at any one time and as traders leave new ones will be allowed to enter.

This plan is subject to change as necessary to keep pin trading an enjoyable but safe experience.
