2024 Event Info!

Round 1 Event Preferencing

Round 1 of event preferencing opens on September 21 at 12 pm (noon) eastern time! Teams have one week to put in their preferences for their initial event before the system closes at 12 pm (noon) on September 28. You can view events using either the event search on the FIRST® webpage or the FRC-Events webpage. Once preferencing closes, teams cannot make any changes before the first round of event assignment. The Event Preferencing page has a User Guide with more details and instructions as well as an FAQ.

You can also add the registration timeline to your calendar so you don’t forget! (You can actually do this for everything on the calendar.)

If you have any questions about events or the event preferencing process, please contact FIRST Team Support or the event's Program Delivery Partner..
