The Four Continents Figure Skating Championships (4CC) is an annual Figure skating competition. The International Skating Union established it in 1999 to provide skaters representing non-European countries with a similar competition to the much older European Figure Skating Championships and a chance to win prize money. The four continents of the event's name refer to the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia (four of the continents represented in the Olympic rings, omitting Europe). Skaters compete in the categories of men's singles, ladies singles, pairs, and Ice dancing.


Skaters qualify for the Four Continents Championships by belonging to a non-European Member nation of the ISU. Each Member country can enter three skaters/teams in each discipline.

Which skaters from each country attend the Four Continents Championships is at the discretion of the respective national governing body. As with the other senior ISU Championships, skaters must be older than fifteen as of July 1 the previous year to compete.

The following countries are eligible to send skaters to the competition: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, D.P.R. Korea, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Republic of Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United States of America, and Uzbekistan.
