FCI Grand Prix One Loft Race is one of most prestigious and well-organized championships in the arena of pigeon sport. Being a member of FCI Grand Prix OLR (GP OLR) benefits the OLR in many ways.
From 2022 FCI aims to launch a new evaluation system for GP OLR and would like to expand this Championship to a larger scale. There will be a new “Grand Prix Category” at the Olympiad and only FCI OLRs supervised by FCI controllers are eligible to take part in this category. Hence, it is fundamental to build up a network of FCI delegates who will have long-term
cooperation with both FCI and GP OLRs.
