There are numerous regional rounds around the UK and across the globe, with the best teams from each round being invited to compete at the Finals Day. Each regional round will consist of 3 preliminary debates and then the best 4 teams will break to a regional final, the winners of which will be crowned ‘Regional Champions’. All of these debates will be short prep – the teams will have 15 minutes to prepare their speeches once the motion has been announced.

Finals Day will be held at The Oxford Union, and will have a slightly different format. There will be four preliminary rounds, after which, the eight leading teams will progress to the semi-finals. Two teams will break from each semi-final round thereby reaching the ICYD Grand Final held in the famous Union Chamber. The winners of the Grand Final will be crowned the Champions of ICYD 2024.
