The Curling World Cup points are accumulated in each discipline throughout the first three legs and credited to the Member Associations, rather than individual teams, to establish the Curling World Cup ranking.
The Curling World Cup ranking list is used to determine the final two qualifiers for the Grand Final in Beijing. In each discipline, the hosts, each stage winner, the current world champions and a special invite team are awarded places in the Grand Final, plus the highest ranked Member Association not yet qualified after the first three legs. The Curling World Cup ranking will also be used if, for instance, a Curling World Cup stage winner and a world champion team are the same.
The points are awarded as follows:
- 10 points – Winning team in each discipline
- 5 points – Runner-up in each discipline
- 3 points – A win after eight ends in the round robin
- 2 points – A win after a shoot out in the round robin
- 1 point – A loss after a shoot out in the round robin
- 0 points – A loss after eight ends in the round robin
